"Well I'ma west coast struttin'
One bad mother
Got a rattle snake suit case
Under my arm
Said I'ma mean machine, been drinkin gasoline
& honey you can make my motor run..."
It's completely off the point, but this is worth sharing. We unearthed two rattle snake dens yesterday on the job site & since we can't very well work on top of these things... well, their heads had to be removed. We killed ten yesterday & two more this morning. I'm no pinko hippie, but I don't like killing animals. Since we didn't have much choice though, instead of wasting them, I put them on ice & brought them home to skin. While I research the tanning process, all twelve snakes are bedding down in my freezer & I think my wife is getting divorce papers ready. Any way, if all goes well, I'll have a good stock of skins to make some really cool leather bits with.
