Hello, my name is Auntie Arlene. I will share with you different stories from my life. Some of them are quite amazing. My life has been rich with adventures. I have traveled this road for a very long time. It all began in a little house in the countryside. But the path has taken me to far away places. Will you join me on this journey? You will learn a lot about other people and places around this world. Are you ready? It will be a fun trip. So let's get started. [mp3]

黑蛇奇遇 A Reptilian Encounter


We often visit a cabin about five hours from our home. It is in the woods overlooking a quaint little town below where we can shop for food and supplies. We love this spot on the mountain and enjoy the quiet and rest there.

One day, my husband carried the laundry, which I had done by hand in a basin, out to a line strung between trees. When he happened to look down, he saw another large black snake crawling close to his feet: our fifth cabin surprise! My brave husband froze in fright. The snake was as startled as he was and they just looked at each other. Soon the snake slithered away and disappeared between two boards of the cabin. The place was right under the bedroom window. We did not sleep much that night as we kept wondering where the snake was!

The next day I was sitting on the porch when I heard some birds chirping very loudly. They kept up the racket so I went to see what they were so excited about. There they were about 20 feet up in a pine tree. I could see a small nest and wondered if the baby birds were ready to take their first flight. But, as I looked closer, I saw the large black snake slithering towards the nest! I called my husband and he had brought his pistol with him to target-practice. I won't tell you how many shots were fired but he finally hit the snake and it fell to the ground. This will end my offering of "cabin surprises" for now, but I am ready to go again to a cabin anytime. I love the peace and quiet of the woods, don't you?
