About a year ago, I ran into a a small snake in my garden. Nothing remarkable. The thing could have stood about five inches high from the grass if it had tried. In the ensuing months, I have seen the snake on several occassions. I am pretty sure it is the same one because... well... it looks "familiar." Mrs Placebo has also attested to the fact that 'our snake' is still out there. Here is my dilemma. Said snake has not caused me any problems at all. We see it on a very regular basis- maybe once or twice a week- and he seems to be doing splendid. My only problem is: he is now about six feet long and still living in our back yard. Last time I saw "Brownie" (that is what we call him) he looked at me and very calmly just slithered away like he owned the place. Should I go ahead and off it just to be on the safe side? I kinda like the bastard.
