Police say a boa constrictor has been missing for a month in Johnson
The good news: A six-foot boa constrictor has been missing from a home in Johnson for about a month, police said Friday. Officials do not know if the snake is dead or alive, though the owner thinks the cold weather would have killed the pet.
The bad news: any snake is bad news but a boa constrictor......in Vermont. If I was the one who found it while running I would have a heart attack and it would all be over.
2. I have already been back in the pool! I am joining the Masters Swim Club at my local high school for a whopping $30 a year and hope to swim once a week. Tuesday I was there ready to swim at 6 a.m. I swam 1000 yards and felt great all day. I stopped on the way to work and bought a cup of pumpkin spice coffee and I had packed my breakfast right along with my lunch!
Wednesday after school. The colors are nice
but not spectacular.
3. Wednesday and Thursday I commuted to school by bike. It has been a great week exercise wise including the rainy bike ride. I do now have my bike cleaned up and looking much better.
Wednesday when I biked it was cold but okay. It was gorgeous when I biked home. Today I was lukewarm (pun intended) about biking to work and thought I might drive and then bike at home later. As it became light I could see there was a HARD FROST on the ground and it was 25 degrees. I got a huge smile on my face and couldn't wait to bike. ??????? Am I nuts? I truly walked around smiling until it was time to leave. Once riding I instantly got an "ice cream headache." I was cold but it was not unbearable, in fact I had a lot of fun and then another gorgeous afternoon ride home.
Thursday morning - a serious frost!
4. We just had Open House at school. I had 100% of my students come with various family members. Yeah! They are so pleased to show everyone their stuff. I also had many of my math students come into see me. Sometimes when I see the parents (or grandparents) I make the connection and the kid's behavior - all makes sense!
Yeah yeah yeah tomorrow is Friday. I may not be leaving on a jet plane but on Saturday I am off on a road trip to the ocean with the ladies!
