Late and what Al is up to


Well just a quick post tonight.
I have been burning the candle at both ends and have not had a moment to post.
So first up let’s answer last week’s WIIW

Well one person was bang on the money.
Old Kitty and Linda G thought it was a piece of knitting.
Nope, not wool but kind of what I hoped people would think …
Vicki thought “flowers”
Nope not nearly so pretty

But it was Marcy who hit the target with: “I was going to say snakeskin.”

Bingo!
On the way back from the cottage last weekend we came across this fellow lying across the track.  S/he is a smallish carpet python (Morelia spilota).
I measured him/her at 7 feet, they grow up to about 14 feet long.  These guys are non-venomous and farmers like to have them around as they clean up plenty of rodent pests.

I moved it off the road as they aren’t smart enough to get out of the way of cars.

So on to this weekend; for the past  three days I have been working on the cottage.
I will try to post an update over the next couple of days. Suffice to say I did not finish this evening until the moon was out and the sun setting…

Are you still in the destroying stage or ready to start rebuilding yet?
