We live in the country. Although Cabbage Ranch is not completely outside the boundaries of civilization, there is no such thing as delivery pizza in our neighborhood.
We are not alone, though. In addition to our human neighbors, we have many, many, manymanymanyMANY friends from the animal kingdom. I love the horses in our pasture, our dogs and cat, and I can't get enough of seeing our resident deer herd evolve. Especially our favorite, a doe named Tabor.
Case in point: a couple of weeks ago I saw a snake crossing the road toward the edge of our property. I got a good look from the safety of my vehicle (windows up, doors locked, foot hovering over accelerator). I did not get a photo, because I was too busy demonstrating my flight response. From my breathless and terrified description later, Cabbage assured me it was a copperhead.
It rated a -1 on the MNS. I guess I'll stay here at Cabbage Ranch... For now.
