Re: Snake.........

I'll guarantee it was a baby Black Racer. They do look like shoelaces and do curl up to threaten you. Pick it up on a piece of paper next time and toss it out on the lawn. They do a great job of...

It is most likely a Black Racer (long and thin and fast). Just open the screen door and shoo it away.

Re: American Cars

Obvously I am biased but my personal ride is a dark red 2006 Crown Victoria LX Sport with cold air intake and Flowmasters. Looks just like an unmarked Police Cruiser. It's not your Grandad's Vic.
