We took a walk in the desert to some volcanic rock hills near our house last night around dark. I almost stepped on a small rattlesnake. It slithered away and barely made much noise until it got under a rock and then started rattling. It didn’t strike at me or anything. Later on, another another one immediately started rattling and I walked out of the way pretty quickly. I don’t remember ever seeing a rattler in the wild, but they seem to love warm rocks when the sun’s going down. We also saw the international space station flying by…looked like a slow flying star or something.
Vanessa’s brother and family have been visiting and I’ve gotten in some time on LittleBigPlanet with the kids and Supreme Commander 2 with da bruvah-in-law.
