    He had just imbibed a lot of water with his head way below his body. I guess some of it didn't travel down the chute correctly.
    Yeah, i am getting pretty attached to him.

    He didn't show up yesterday. We got 1.8" of rain. Today is also overcast, but warm and muggy. And here he is, sprawled comfortably where he belongs:

    Note that he appears fatter in spots. Guess he found some little rodents.

    Maybe he thinks all those black shoes are good camouflage. ..

    ....or funny shaped friends? ;)

    Dexter actually happens to be my legal name.

    How about Mighty Usurper of Birkenstocks?

    It blows me away how he completely trusts me not to harm him.

    That is so great that unknowingly your name was suggested for him. Guess he is fitting in just like family.

    This is my yard snake, Stinky. She still musks me when I pick her up so we mostly just nod and go out separate ways.

    ...how about Birks? Wouldn't want both of you called Dexter! It could get awfully confusing! ;)
