What's on the menu?

Our water heater had to be replaced recently. When the installer showed up we went to the sidewalk to turn off the main water valve to the house. When we lifted off the cover I wished Gomer Pyle had been there to say "Surprise, surprise, surprise!"

I told the installer he could take care of that dining scene himself or we could take a coffee break for an hour or so, off the time/labor clock. He opted for a coffee break. It probably was an easy decision for him because he stayed about 20' back while I took the pictures. The snake posed politely, probably because he was in the middle of chewing. Susan wasn't too anxious to watch the digestion process but wondered how all of this fit into a vegetarian scheme. I thought that providing dining privacy was the gentlemanly thing to do and an hour later they were gone.
