Falling Snakes

Paralyzing worries

I thought of Mr. Robert, the old East Texas cowman, the other day.

I heard that a snake had been spotted in the fork of a tree in my neighborhood.

It’s still a mystery — at least to me. I’m not sure if it’s a dead snake, placed there as a trophy by a cat or schoolboy. Maybe it’s a plastic snake, intended to scare away pests.

Read the rest of the story here.


This is a funny story. Take time to read it -- it will make you smile!

CONTENTMENT: Keep your heart free from hate, your mind from worry, live simply, expect little, give much, sing often, pray always, forget self, think of others and their feelings, fill your heart with love, scatter sunshine. These are the tried links in the golden chain of contentment.

IT IS STILL BEST to be honest and truthful; to make the most of what we have; to be happy with simple pleasure; and to be cheerful and have courage when things go wrong.
(Laura Ingalls Wilder, 1867-1957)

Thanks for reading.
