The CORRECTION is now WELL UNDERWAY (and he's waking up -- trying to adapt). It will be VERY interesting in the next few days, no???
Scott Kenan: HA HA!!!
A short time ago (11 hours???), I told Susan Lattomus how my Great-Grandmother, Juliana Moore, the Oldest Confederate Widow in North Carolina, killed a rattlesnake with a broomstick at her 100th birthday party (also, my 4th Kenan cousin Allan Gurganus, based his book and movie LOOSELY on her, and Donald Sutherland, with Diane Lane and Anne Bancroft playing "Lucy Marsden" at different ages), played my great-grandparents and Cicely Tyson got her FIRST Emmy!!!
And I AGREE with you, DANCE with rattlesnakes!!!
I've come suddenly upon rattlers, cotton-mouths, and copperheads several times in my life -- and ALWAYS backed away quickly enough -- LOL!!!
(I went to high school with Susan Lattomus, and we recently reconnected on Facebook.)
And a year later, this is JUST AS TRUE -- although the percents may have changed!!!
