I was out in a wetlands nature preserve yesterday looking for something, on the southwest side of the island. It's pretty neat, first part is swamp and the second part is woods. Just a 2.5 foot wide concrete sidewalk into the woods. I was walking down there, and all of the sudden, boom -- I was 5 feet away from a cottonmouth. I scared it off and kept going, and then on the way back, boom - I ran into another one just as big, just as close. And then the first one again. That combined with the spiders that were the size of cigarette boxes was enough to make me consider bringing some OFF and a stick with me if I ever go down there again. Besides that, though, the preserve was pretty cool. I like the woods, I get a little nostalgic.

I'm going to go pick up Freya from the dog trainer today I think, since she's gone into heat and he can't train her (or any of his other dogs while she's there). So I'll be getting her for a couple of weeks maybe. I need to go get the dog food he's been feeding her, and a dog-diaper for her so she won't bleed all over the apartment. And I really won't be able to take her for walks or leave her outside alone while she's like that either. At least I'll get to have her for awhile before she goes back for training.
