This Wednesday as I performed this ritual I was treated to an arrhythmia inducing shock. I had just removed the engine cowl to attach the fuel line when I notice something move and heard a slight hiss. I peered over the chamber and saw this fellow had taken up residence in my motor and was apparently planning on hibernating in the motor compartment. This shocked the not out of me and my buddy said I jumped 10 feet back from a flat- footed standstill.
After regaining composure , I nudged this "viper" from it's lair, and then grabbed the tail and gently flung him into the tall grass behind the shed. Hopefully he will eat a few dozen field mice before he hibernates and the mice assault the Clubhouse as the weather cools.
