so this is what I have typed so far ...

I finally got around to going fishing this morning but after a while I ran out of worms.

Then I saw a cottonmouth with a frog in his mouth, and frogs are good bass bait.

Knowing the snake couldn't bite me with the frog in his mouth, I grabbed him right behind the head, took the frog and put it in my bait bucket.

Now the dilemma was how to release the snake without getting bit.

I grabbed my bottle of Jack Daniels and poured a little whiskey in its mouth.

His eyes rolled back, he went limp, I released him into the lake without incident, And carried on my fishing with the frog.

A little later I felt a nudge on my foot.

There was that same snake with two frogs in his mouth.

I think I was a snake like that.

I've always identified myself more like a turtle...slow learner, but making forward progress s-l-o-w-l-y. I guess my pity-pot moments are when I pull my head in my shell for awhile.

Namaste (snakes are just legless, jointless creatures that can eat you)

The frogs were out last night and making a racket. I'm surprised they survived after the freezing temperatures but they seem okay.

Hello, looking on Google for Snake wine information I found your website, do you have anything more posted here related to Snake wine liquor ?
Snake wine is shown there:

I previously bought a snake wine I am now looking for any other creature wine as mice or tokay, any idea where to find ?

Thanks a lot for your help.
