Perfect Pirouettes

•••  Websters Dictionary ••• 
Pirouette: a rapid whirling about of the body.  
A full turn on the ball of ones foot.

Sitting at my sewing machine an afternoon ago... 
I hear my girl putter up the long driveway in the jeep...
I hear the door open .......

Then a blood curdling scream....  I race outside.

There she was turning perfect pirouettes next to the car.  

This is what she saw..............







He's a good guy.  He's a bull snake. We named him Frank. 
 ...And you better believe we look 
            before we step out of the car now!!!

Oh my goodness! Frank the snake! I am not so sure I could handle that... we don't have snakes here - only in the zoo! They are so fascinating though... I feel so bad about that wallet I took apart recently now after seeing your Frank - he looks like it! :/
