Last week she and I scared each other. Last week I didn’t look before I stuck my hand in the nest. After running my fingers across her cold coiled body I jumped back as a shock struck through me. Not knowing I could move that fast, I saw her head rise just as I looked down at the nest.
Now and forever more, I will use a flashlight to check the nest BEFORE I stick my hand in it.
This week we were both on the look out for each other. Hey girlfriend, welcome to the ranch.
