1.22.11 Creepy

If your children knew what you did in your younger years for fun would you allow them to do the same?

One of the wild and crazy dangerous activities that I was involved in in my younger foolish years was.... ready, wait for it...  
RATTLE SNAKE HUNTING!!!!
Crazy and real creepy huh?  We never got anyone hurt.  No one was ever bitten.  We bagged, is that what they call it when you actually get one, several a week.
So the photo that depicts CREEPY is .....
SNAKES for goodness SAKES
Oh and my answer is NO, NO WAY, NOT ON YOUR LIFE!!!  would I have allowed my children to be involved in such a outlandish, ridiculous, dangerous, crazy, stupid sport. 
The snake is a stuffed smaller version of our real live catches.

Yes Barb but I have checked the theme list thoroughly and there is no "Sheer Bloody Lunacy" listed. That is what taking this shot was IMHO!

Eeeeew! At least in east river SD we don't have rattlers as they don't cross the Missouri! The things we do in our youth!!

Crikey! The late Steve Irwin would have been proud. What did you do with them after you bagged them? I'm so pleased that this one is stuffed.
