seem to go to George. I haven't seen one of them.
Everybody says "Rattlesnakes...
watch out. Rattlesnakes...under the stones.
Rattlesnakes... sunning on the rocks." I haven't seen
any. I did see one big black snake, but they are
actually beneficial, not dangerous, and they are
beautiful. I think they are called black
They are about 5 feet, lying on the trail and I said
to it, "I know you are benign, but I'm going to walk
around you, because I don't want to disturb you." So I
walked around it.
One day during Hurricane Dennis, we got a little bit
of it in Pennsylvania as it was winding down. But
there was heavy rain and very, very heavy humidity,
thick fog. And on the trail one morning, I could only
see maybe 3 yards ahead of me in the mist. There is
the back side of a cat, a big cat. I think well, it's
not a lion or anything, but that is a big cat. And it
is right in front of me and it is running just at the
edge of the mist. If it went a little faster, it would
disappear in the mist. But it just stayed where I
could see. And I thought, "Why isn't that cat running
off the trail? Why is it just staying apace with me?"
And then it stopped, and had this big wide face and
big ears and I thought, "it's a wild cat. But it's not
and you don't want to mess with it." It weighed 60-70
lb. And I just stopped and looked at it and it looked
at me and then it moved so fast into the underbrush
and was gone. What if it was rabid? You know, rabies
is very serious. I thought, "when I walk by, maybe it
will be in the bushes waiting." So I went by REAL
