Adventures of a Modern Day, Middle-Aged Hero, on the Glory Road(to family security)


That wouldn't have happened at Target...

A guy trying to buy some mulch at Walmart got a little more than he bargained for when he got bit on the hand by a rattlesnake

I've never been to Clarkston...it's about two hours from here over on the Washington-Idaho border.  I can't imagine their Walmart is much different from the Walmart in Kennewick or Richland though...and I wouldn't have been surprised to here that this story had happened here in the Tri-Cities.  South-East Washington in lousy with Rattlesnakes.  The animal control folks out on site at Hanford take care of 4 or 5 each summer. 

What really made my day in this story wasn't that the guy got bit, because getting bit on the hand by a rattlesnake can't be pleasant...it's that the guy gets to admit he was at Walmart buying mulch for his marijuana plants! 

God Bless the Pacific North West...

  1. You live on the other edge of the redoubt. Interesting to read for contrast. Well, and you know about the redoubt. Too, you are less religiously inclined, I am Catholic, neither of which is... an exact fit. Utah here. For some reason, in spite of getting out a bit from time to time, I have seen zero rattlesnakes. You there, my friend in AZ, and when I lived in Colorado, sure. But not here, in Northern Utah, up into the mountains on rarely traveled paths? Odd.

    At first I thought he must be a heavy end user to say what the fertilizer was for, until I read the rest of it. Still, would you really want to advertise your usage? That you grow it? I dunno, but it doesn't sound like a smart plan with feds and illicit users all looking to score.
