Crime Scene Photos from my bedroom

So, you may remember reading about our snake Porter Rockwell and his 2 escapes. He was found after his first escape and hadn't been seen since his second escape when Miss P mistakingly let him go. We all assumed that he had made his way out of the house and would never be seen again. We spent weeks searching for him, all along he was inside the house. I dusted and vaccuumed my bedroom today and decided to move a little trunk we have to vaccuum under it. It had been a month or maybe two since I moved it to vaccuum under it. Lo and behold, under the trunk lay a somewhat moldy, very dead and dried up Porter. Please do not tell my children, they love Porter and are just as well left thinking he is living free outside catching rodents and lizards. So, for those of you who feared a visit here, no longer fear, the only snake we now have resides safely behind glass.
Time to bust out the carpet cleaner...
This is the bottom of the trunk he was under.

SO SAD.

EWWWWWW, I really don't know how you stayed in the house after Porter ran away!!! You are SOOOOO brave. And yes, we need a computer date and SOON. When we have nice weather...much like today and I have Miss J with me, I am going to start taking her for walks. I was hoping we could stop by on a few of them. I would love the visit. I'll let you know when we are heading out!

wow....did he just get stuck under there and couldn't get out? That's too bad...for your kids' sake, but I will admit that now I will dare come to your house! I agree with Donna...EWWWWWWWWW. :)

Oh my. How in the world you did not think of Porter 24/7 until you found him is beyond me. Really, you are one tough woman. I would have been staying in a hotel all this time.

That's really crazy that he got under there and got stuck, poor guy. But yes, you are one tough woman. I don't do snakes! I'm praying my boys don't ask for one someday!:)
