In Our Frontyard....

Ahhh, it's fun living in Australia, especially when you live across the road from a Natural Bush reserve! Our daughter came running in the other day to tell me she had run something over with her car when she was pulling into the driveway of our home. We both went outside to check what it was and discovered it was a tiger snake!

Hubby was at work so we ran next door for some help - Our neighbour Mick walked straight up to it and grabbed it by the back of the neck! Mick is a lovely guy who is a real Aussie character! Kind of a cross between Steve Irwin and Crocodile Dundee - only with heaps of tattoos! Anyway, he saved us from the snake - (which by the way was dead by then!) and we put it in the letterbox to play a little joke on Doug..... :)

Our neighbour, the very brave Mick!


Back soon!
