There you go folks..the West, Texas news...What didn't make the paper was that Babs along with Tony and Betty's brother they killed a 2-3 foot yellow bellied something snake..I forget..Prego her cat found it on the porch right by her door..They hacked it to death. The mustang farmer has a small tank and it attracts all those type of snakes..they like water and they don't like being messed with. They're not poisonous but don't think Babs would have liked being bit by it and know the cats wouldn't. They also make a smell like a skunk when they are threatened. Which really freaked ole Tony out. Ha.
I walked over to take Babs her paper and Dexter walked over with me ..or stalked me all the way over I'm not sure which. He went into Babs house, pissing off Tina and worrying Prego. He would like to make friends but the twisted sisters aren't all that interested. I don't think he knows he's not as illegible a bachelor as he seems to think and has visions of a little Dexter harem...dream on buddy..dream on.
