Afraid of laundry?

Maine — Mara Ranger will be a little paranoid doing laundry now. When she was removing clothes from the washing machine at her Maine farmhouse Wednesday, the clothes moved. She told WMTW-TV, "I jumped back" and saw a snake. She quickly shut the lid and called for help.
Maine Animal Damage Control operator Richard Burton reached into the machine and pulled and pulled — all 8 feet of a reticulated python.
Burton guesses the snake got into Ranger's washing machine through water pipes. The snake's future home will be York Animal Kingdom in York.
Ranger is going to start looking into every corner of her washing machine. She says, "I'm going to be looking in the tub first — before and after, maybe even during, the rinse cycle."

I always miss all the fun!  LOL!

    I've never seen a snake in it, but the laundry at my house is very, very scary. The sheer size of the piles along would be enough to send a lesser woman running, screaming. I, however, have the fortitude to courageously ignore it for weeks at a time.

    When it take on a life of its own and begins moving, I'll let you know.

    We once had a citrus rat come up through the toilet. My poor ex-husband went in to use the facilities first thing in the morning and was greeted by the rat! It took a long while before we could rest comfortably again!

    Heh. Got a rat terrier who loves to kill snakes (handy because we live near the Saline River).

    Wonder how that 16-pound dog would do with an eight-foot-long snake?
