Memories by Katie:
As a child, I eagerly awaited his Saturday morning arrival because he would bring the snakes. He would have dozens of them in aquariums, and spent the majority of his time entertaining... and scolding... the fearless children. Somewhere in my parents’ house is a picture of me when I was maybe 8 or 9 with an enormous yellow snake draped over my shoulders, his head and tail both touching the floor. He stayed there for a while because he didn’t appreciate it when Dave would try to take him. Scared the wits out of my momma but, at the time, it was one of the best experiences ever for me.
