Monday Memories (1963)

Long ago when we lived in Rios Canyon, California my brother and I would walk to school. The dirt road seemed such a long ways at the time, but I'm sure it wasn't but maybe a couple of miles. I was in kindergarten.

It was a common sight to see snakes of all kinds. Especially rattlers. One day my brother was sick and had to stay home. When I was walking home from school there was a BIG snake reaching across half the road. I remember giving it a wide berth, and running the last half mile home. I lived to see another day.
