    My DSIL called me into the bathroom and asked if I did it. No ma'am! When she first found it, she had just lifted the lid and it was wrapped around the seat. My brother promptly came home with two friends who quickly fished it out and got rid of it. I usually tell my niece that boys are yucky, but not this time!

    Give thanks you did not step on it in the night!

    A friend in Wyoming stepped on a rattler in his hallway in the night--he had forgotten to shut the patio door . Fortunately, the night up there were pretty cool and the snake was too sluggish to strike. Would you believe that from then on, his wife would not allow him to turn off the hall light at night? :<)

    I would have had my husband plug the toilet up permanantly. I HATE snakes. That would freak me out forever.

It was 34.5 inches long and came up through the septic, passed my brother's bathroom, probably because it was too icky in there, and curled up on hall potty! My SIL is thinking about coming home with me for the night!

    This is how it was when my SIL lifted the lid

    I think your SIL is thinking clearly by going home with you and if I were her - I wouldn't be going back until I had a certified notarized letter saying my house was snake free...and even then stepping back into that bathroom would be an issue....I'm still freaking out over the 3 mice we found in my garage when we cleaned it out - that's why my garage as a sewing room as stalled...

    Mice in the house do not bother me and even tho I can live with snakes not in my house please! I had Gertie the garter snake in the flowers for a few years till the dog decided Gertie had to go.
