I Don't Like Spiders OR SNAKES!

Odd irony that two different people sent me e-mails this week about snakes. BOTH of them were CREEPY! EEEKKKK…I don’t like spiders OR SNAKES.

Seems a sheep farmer was puzzled about the disappearance of some sheep on his farm. After a few weeks the farmer decided to put up an electric fence.

About a week later, This is what he found! The wires are 10 inches apart.

This snake was recently found at the J & S Quik Mart located just south of RR 3014

Turnoff on Highway 281 south of Tow Texas. [THAT'S JUST WEST of BURNET]

A reminder that these creatures are actually out there and no matter what you believe, sometimes they should get not only prescriptive rights to be there but the full right of way!

9 feet, 1 inch - 97 lbs


1 medium-sized rattlesnake (3-4 lbs.), cut into steaks
1/2 cup flour
1/4 cup cornmeal
1/4 cup cracker crumbs
1/2 cup milk
1 egg
1/4 teaspoon garlic powder (not garlic salt)
1 teaspoon salt
Dash pepper

Mix dry ingredients. Whisk milk into beaten egg and use to dip snake steaks.
Then coat them with dry ingredients. Fry, uncovered, in 400 degree oil until brown.

Yum,Yum! It sorta tastes like chicken. JWD

Now..Now…no laughter here :0 You know I wouldn’t be doing my Southern duty if I didn’t include the recipe with the road kill. And…I’ve eaten it before (over a camp fire on a stick of course…), and…it does taste a little like chicken :)
