Res ipsa loquitur
went into the cucumber patch this afternoon to get a few for Raggedyann . . . this guy was there hiding in the mulch right next to a big cuc I'd left to go to seed . . . my left hand was within 8" of him before I saw him way down in the mulch. I have the habit of shifting things around with a short handled hoe before I go reaching in . . . didn't do that THIS TIME. can you spell L U C K Y kids? he taped out at 29" and girth the size of my wrist at his mid section . . . that's a big copperhead for these parts. in the 20 years I've had this place I've only killed one bigger than this here.
