Good morning Arizona!

Check out this cute li'l baby diamondback we found this morning all snuggled up snoozing in the middle of our running path. Such an unassuming itty bitty camouflaged pile-o-poop-looking thing. Aside from the fact that it can strike at a distance 2-3X its body length with that pesky, tissue-dissolving, heart failure-inducing venom.

It was REALLY hard to see on the asphalt so we gently rolled rocks as close as we could--trying not to disturb the snake--to mark where it was so others would see it. This was the closest I have ever come to finding a real-life application for the game Shuffleboard.

Good job saving other people. :) Did I ever tell you that we've been collecting Swiffer brooms so that we can make our own shuffleboard game come the Olympics. You should come play with us! :)

You are such a Good Samaritan. A Mother Teresa, even. ;)
