Many many years ago when it wasn't frowned upon I had a grass snake which had a bit of a bent tail. No snakes here so it was a bit of a novelty. It escaped one evening and I eventually gave up looking for it. Nearly 18 months later there was a k ock on my door and the minister from the church about 1/4 of a mile away said someone told him I used to have one. Went up to the church and there was my snake coiled around a radiator. It was in really good shape too.

At one time was a member of Drax Golf Club (not too far from you) and was lots of grass snakes on there.
One day saw one that was at least 4ft long.

Also where I worked near the river used to get them in the summer months.

This is why I don't do a lot of camping in North America - too many snakes (and bears and mountain lions... and crazy mountain people with guns! :lol:)

This isn’t the posh Beeston of Leeds this Beeston in Notts which is akin to a Favela in Rio de Janeiro or Soweto in South Africa. A no go area that is policed by Sherman tanks and SAS members. There’s a nice tea room there though :lol:

Fella from a supporters club I used to be a member of headed over to a game a few years ago. Took the car over on the Liverpool ferry. Set his sat nave for Beeston (had booked a B&B) and off he went... to a B&B with the same name in Notts :D He did make the game but with the additional petrol and speeding ticket costs.

Tracey's son is bringing their year old Cocker Spaniel down today. It's not getting the attention it needs and is kept in a cage for long periods. It's even frightened of her son who has never owned a dog before and apparently shouting is his way of controlling the wee thing. We have had words a while back and now i think he realises he's done more harm than good. (they really didn't think when they got a dog) We're going to give it a few days here to see how it settles. I've no worries about Zac as he's a big softie and loves other dog even when they are brought into his territory. It's the cats that might be the issue, Zac was raised with them and treats them as buddies but Spaniels tend to have a big prey drive. Anyway fingers crossed we'll be able to take Willow and get her back to a happy pup. Not sure what the next move is if we can't but the wee thing can't go on living this way. The good thing is they know this and are taking action.
