But since my latest heroic episode occurred recently, I guess I don't mind sharing.
We had just finished some chocolate cake (what? I was sick and it comforted me) and Mrs. Clyde looked out on our patio and saw a huge snake about 1 foot from our door. I know, I know...everyone freaked out and called for me.
Mrs. Clyde handed me a pair of tongs that we had out for hot dogs. They were the small tongs. I admonished her and demanded the BBQ tongs. "The Longnecks!...and make it fast!"
Here is a picture of the menacing intruder.
