Has anyone heard from MidnightBlue?

Biminiblue seems to be MIA, too.

Maybe we can entice them back with cake?

They won’t eat cake—try fruits, nuts, and vegetables!

There are vipers around this part of France.
They are small but venomous.

This little one I think it is a couleuvre (grass snake) but not sure. It was about 40cm long.

Anyone able to tell me what it is confirm. ?

Snakes remain a controversial topic on the weekenders! Didn't we have a conversation similar to this a few weeks ago when Venus told us that funny story?

Loved that cartoon, Vman! The humor reminds me a bit of Gary Larson, although I don’t think it’s one of his.

Mrs Haddock has terrible ophidiophobia (defined as an abnormal fear of snakes). She screams out loud when she sees one on TV and we can’t go to pet shops, reptile parks etc. I don’t keep any, but am fascinated by and like reading about them. Those that we find around our house from time to time are mostly harmless and I try to catch and release them. I still have to decide what I’ll do if I find a real nasty one.

Many interesting species are found in Africa, but it seems I’d be going against my better judgement by posting pics of them, lol!

As Gilmer said, I think we should try using different bait for Bim, MB et al. How about some shoe pics?

Morning Captain, morning weekenders.

It's my wife's birthday today so I have to make it a special day. Myself and Mini Vman got a little present yesterday.

Time for coffee (05:50)

Hope you all have a great day.

Happy Birthday Mrs V!

The formers Mrs S did not have a phobia about snakes but she did have one about balloons and couldn't bear to be in a room with them. Not sure if there is a name for that one.

Hey Manta.
That sounds really super about the Bread.
Congratulations on your weightloss and sticking to your guns since you got back from rehab.
It's always great to hear from you.
Keep us posted.
