And I don't mind snakes, but when they surprise you, it's still a bit of a shock!
So I was walking around the building looking at the progress (or lack thereof) on our washroom renovation. As I rounded the corner, I noticed that the ground was wet and that one of the outdoor faucets was dripping. So, I reached for the faucet handle and turned it off.
As I did so, I noticed the big snake about 6 inches from my hand.
It's strange how I didn't even see it. But at the time, it was a little higher up and I had been looking from the ground up to the faucet. Still, I just about jumped out of my skin. By the time I came back with the camera it had started to slither down.
About four feet long.
Went into town yesterday and did groceries. Deal of the day was a box of gluten free Rice Krispies that had been on the shelf priced at $2.88, but when we looked at our receipt it had rung through at $4.98. I went to Walmart's customer service desk and their policy is to give it to you free if there's a pricing discrepancy.
Speaking of Walmart, I found a cheap "Proscan" brand tablet computer on Walmart's Canadian website priced at $19. They're normally around $75. I ordered one, but got an email last night saying that they were out of stock, even though it showed as being in stock when I ordered it. Sure, it's just a cheap tablet, but it comes with a case and keyboard, and a worse case scenario is that it's junk and I simply return it. But, I think it will give us a good idea if a tablet is worthwhile, and so maybe we'll buy a more expensive Samsung tablet if we like the cheap one.
Yet to be seen if we receive one though, so it may have all been for nothing.

I had never heard of it before, but apparently the very latest high tech home electronics device is now available...the Amazon Echo...
It sure does get good reviews. 90% of all reviews give it four to five stars. Pretty high tech stuff for your wireless home!
And here in Canada, a great deal on a digital bathroom scale...
