100 Word Challenge:  Snake

Several years ago when my friends moved to Orlando they began to have a visitor in the back of the house by the pool. It was a big black snake. Frank would catch the snake, walk it down to the woods behind their home and let it go.

The snake would reappear under the small palm tree by the pool. He would catch it again and release it in the woods. This continued all summer long. Once the snake followed Frank out of the woods. The following summer the snake did not come back. I think they really missed it.

    I’ve seen several snakes in my backyard, but can’t tell if they were the same one. Kind of cool to have a semi-pet snake though.
