our first encounter was with a baboon
that had raided our neighbors cupboards and upon being caught
jumped the fence into our yard to enjoy his treats
while the kiddos were playing in the back yard.
our gardener saved the day by shooing him off.
by the way...he was atleast my size.
our second encounter
came when our gardner goes into our shed (called windy house here)
and comes running out saying snake.
he refuses to go back in.
joey comes home for lunch and they begin
it takes about an hour and the total cleaning out of the shed to find
to find the sneaky snake.
joe kills him with a shovel.
out to the road he goes.
only to be picked up by a man and taken up the street
where the neighbor shouts...
he is a cape cobra!
poisonous and so not good.
what's up with the critters today?
two is two too many.
and so the adventure continues...
