Not much more to say about this one. Everybody else in the house was away somewhere—Abby at the Oregon Country Fair, Sally at Far View Ranch, Nell still in France, Amy visiting Rick and Tweedy. I checked on the web to make sure it was not venomous, and indeed it was a regular ? snake. Then I swept it out with a broom. I have been working on the algebra book, and enjoying the life of one living alone. Nice for a week, not much longer.
