A to B/snake attack









N excuse to link to the letter B on a blog that features the work of three generations of photojournalists.

In other news, someone found it necessary 
to yank the snake, thus exposing his stuffing to the world. He's 
now been repaired and is ready to return to his position. 
I had thought about attaching a tag saying "This is not a real snake and poses no threat. Please do not attack snake", but I thought that might be asking for trouble.

Snake yanking is an ever-present danger for which there is no real remedy other than repair. Blame it on the Book of Genesis.

Thanks, D & T, for your good wishes -

Nemo - Good point, even leaving aside Oedipal issues.

Good Morning, and thanks for the A to B link.
You are an attentive observer--speaking of which...
I left my bike at home last night and went walking instead at Chavez Park at the marina. Half-way round, I decided to a U-turn and return the way I came after getting a glimpse of the SF skyline. A few minutes later I saw something strange ambling along the bay side of the grassy strip beside the path. It looked like the extended wing of a large, black bird. I thought it might be a crow with one wing thrust skyward, the other, perhaps, broken, dragging on the ground. The animal's movements, though, were flat-out weird. The wing twitched and jerked like a plume on a dune buggy. I was relieved when the black wing dipped out of sight. I waited, a little scared, then decided to walk on. I passed the area and kept turning around to try to see what in heck I'd seen. On third glance I spied the unmistakable double white chevron of a skunk--the stripe extending from the top of his head, across his back and all the way up his furry tail--the "weird black wing" I'd spotted twitching above the grasses. The skunk was running straight at me. I high-tailed it out of there to avoid getting sprayed an called Animal Control when I got home.
