I was just thinking about…the snake and I

We'se often had garter-snake residents in our garage, but we'se never had one as bold as Samantha. Or it might be Samuel; our relationship hasn's grown quite personal enough for me to figure that out. Our garage possesses a snake-friendly corner, just inside the door. A snake can slither in through a tiny gap in the door molding, and maybe through other entrances we haven's discovered. The builders of the house created a concrete block along the base of the garage wall, about two inches tall and two inches deep. They covered that, except for the ends, with a wooden block about twice those dimensions. The arrangement is perfect for snake repose and concealment.
