I live out in the country near Fulshear and we have assorted snake issues including cotton mouths.  Even had one on my back porch once and one fell in the swimming pool.  My expericence is they will show their mouth first but they WON'T back off and if you get to close they won't hesitate to strike.  Some years back one of our dogs got to close and got bit on the foot. That was a expensive vet bill!!

Fendmar must attract those things.  I believe he was nearby in GBP when gsguru and Mrs. MoreLeft almost stepped on this guy:

Ahhhhhhh what a cute, cuddly snake !....

He just needs a hug and a little petting... Instead of stepping on him...

Snakes have feelings  too  !!!!

The pic posted by Deafdillos is very funny.

The pic of the pink flamingos....if you live in Cypress, there is a high school group that is doing a fundraiser.  You can pay to have a friend (or maybe a foe) flocked with pink flamingos.  I think that would be so much worse than finding toilet paper in my trees.

But it would be so much easier to get rid of the flamingos since you could just call the company to come pick them up.  Toilet tissue in trees is a different story.  ;)
There is no adventure without risk.

Mustangs escorted the B-29s on many missions, so the two warbirds you saw in LaPorte could have shared some air over Japan 66 years ago.

I'm sure they could have, though I always think of the European Theater when it comes to the P-51.  The P-38 Lightning and carrier-based planes like the Corsair and Hellcat usually come to mind when I think of the Pacific Theater.

Respectfully, the P-51 wasn't used in the Pacific but did escort B-17's over Europe. 

The Pacific theater featured Marine Corps and Naval air units and the P-51 was Army Air Corps....

Plus, the Mustang wasn't carrier based.

From http://www.chuckhawk...ustang_P-51.htm

P-51D's in Europe spearheaded the B-17 and B-24 heavy bomber streams that delivered the final crushing blows to Berlin and the other German industrial centers. In the Pacific they cleared the way for the B-29 formations that did the same thing to Tokyo and Japanese industry, sweeping aside the defending Japanese fighters.

The Japanese Raiden intercepter, designed specifically to engage heavy bombers, initially had some successes against unescorted SuperForts. The USAAF response was to provide Mustangs to escort the heavy bombers. That ended the threat, for the Raiden proved to be no match for the agile P-51. This is how Japanese ace Saburo Sakai described those events in his book Samurai!:

"For a short period of time the fighters broke the B-29's myth of invinciability, and the Raiden's four cannon and flashing speed raised our hopes by blowing several B-29's out of the sky."

"The enemy's answer was to send swarms of Mustangs over Japan during the daylight raids. The swift enemy fighters tore savagely at our planes and slaughtered them. Where the Raiden shone against the B-29, it was helpless before the swifter, more manuverable Mustang."


While the lion's share of work for the Mustang was in Europe, P-51's were used extensively in Burma and China and flew B-29 escort missions from Iwo Jima and other captured Japanese islands.

rain and 40-50 mph winds in bear creek park today, trees snapping, picked the wrong day to be out in it.  I was on this path just a few minutes before this happened going west, on my way out headed east I got a picture of it.  more here..  http://www.geocachin...25-fa7b014bc9f2

My favorite part of your log:  "As I am standing there semi drying off, I have this crazy thought.. did I get hit by lightening and die back there? Looking at the beer it's a miller light so I quickly disgard that notion."  :D :D :D
