Bill, the "wetting her plants" was not missed, it was just over ridden by snakes! It was a funny ending with the play on words. I thought it was another good one chalked up to Barnyard!
OK - King snakes and black snakes can live, unless Melba Jo sees the first - then they must go!

I don't like snakes either, but very seldom kill one other than the poisonous variety. Joann on the other hand is scared to death of them, so I try to keep them away. I had some decide to nest under my front landing one time, but a hand full of moth balls thrown down the hole and they left and never came back. Unfortunately a Momma to be skunk decided a couple years later the same place would be an ideal den and nursery. Would have preferred the snakes. LOL.

I missed it on the first pass, but Grumpy's comment made me LOL!

We have always lived by the montra "The Only good snake is a dead snake" Having copperheads, rattlers, and the like where my parents grew up in SE Ohio and WV and from when I was a kid and we had our farm. Not many survived. I even remember my Uncle having a section of rattles from a Snake he had killed when he was young that had at least 10 segments. Nope...cant handle the serpent.
