and I got home from the gym. It was dark outside and
appeared his tail (the rattler) had been run over by a
car...sure enough...so he wasn't as quick as they norm-
ally can be...so with flashlight and camera in hand (my
part) and Tom with a flashlight and shovel (his part)
did away with this fella and put him in the wash that
runs by our house. I took these pictures but didn't
show the squashed "rattle".
