    Default Look what I found in my firewood pile!!

    Walking past my firewood pile I spied a large Copperhead sunning itself. Unbelievably, at the same moment a large frog came hopping by. Sad but quick! The snake then slid back into the wood pile where I snapped this shot.

    Now my issue is that 2 fellow Forum members are due at my place next weekend to sift through the logs to see what treasures they may find. What is the right thing to do? Should I tell them about the snake or run a book on which one of them jumps the highest and runs the fastest???

    OK OK, just joking, of course I'll do the right thing.....

    Who's in????

    Video for sure;I suspect both Hughie and Paul will forget all about their bad backs when clambering up the nearest tree. Great for Youtube!!!!

    Could be a contender for Funniest Home Videos. Might need to brush up on your resuscitation skills!

    I have no idea how it is possible to resuscitate anyone when on my back, legs in the air, clutching my stomach and finding it hard to breath through the fits of laughter

    Ahhh, yes, well, a slight tactical mis judgement. I suppose I'd better offer full refunds if the "race" is cancelled. Let's hope they stay off line for another week

    You blokes from New South Wales are a strange lot!

    Glad I am not one of the two visiting Forumites - it would be
    down to one very quickly. Will watch this with interest.

    You can't run bets! You need to film it as well for a photo finish!
    I have a snake in my yard some where he left 2 + foot of skin to prove it.
    Hope he has moved on!
