I carry my cell, but its an old Nextel and not a camera phone. Anyway, I have encountered 2 odd nature events in the last week and I think my wife thinks I'm just making this stuff up. Ok here we go - Last Friday I was riding in the park and passed what I thought was a snake smushed in the road, but something about the image in my mind didn't completely seem right. After cruising about 500 yards further, I just couldn't stand it, I had to go back and look. I pulled back up to what I thought was a dead snake only to see a small live rattle snake with a large frog in it's mouth. Believe it or not the frog was as big as the snake. I inched my front tire up to the snake and he released the frog and opened his mouth displaying his fangs. The frog was dead, but the snake was very alive. I guess I should have done what anybody else would do and try to kill the thing, but instead I just road on.
Then this Friday the second odd event - I'm heading down the hill out of my nieghborhood and suddenly a very small spotted fawn darts out of the woods right at me. I thought to myself that was odd, but even stranger when I looked over my shoulder the crazy thing was chasing me. I went a few more yards and slowed to a stop and the little thing ran within about 10 yards and stopped. It just stould there and looked at me for about 10 seconds then bolted back into the woods. It was breathing heavy and seemed almost as confused as I was. I guess it thought I was momma. I could have taken a great pic if had just had a camera with me.
You guys believe me don't you?
