This past weekend at the Kid's Fair, we got to see an informational teaching on snakes. Our boys were enthralled, hanging on every word the instructor (who also happens to be a friend of ours) said. They learned about snakes (More specifically: The Garter Snake and the Rattlesnake) that live in South Dakota, and how you can tell the difference.

Tuesday Morning, I overheard Willard and Maynard chatting (This is my new hobby!):

Willard: Do you know how to tell the difference between a rattlesnake and a gard'ner snake?

Maynard: Uh Huh!
(Even though Maynard says he knows, Willard continues:)

Willard: Well, see, a rattlesnake has a long tail and a short neck, and a gard'ner snake has a long neck and a short tail.

He keeps going:

Do you know why he is called a gard'ner snake?

Maynard: Ummmm.

Willard: A gard'ner snake is called that because it likes to live in the garden.
