This am as I returned home from my walk I pass the usual two older gentlemen, older as in probably over 80 years old. We always do the usual morning hellos and walk on. I can see them walking ahead each on opposite sides of the street. As I look to the ground I see something very rare here in Arizona, an Arizona Coral Snake lying in the road on the corner. I am thrilled as this is a big deal for me. I whip out my camera and proceed to take images. Well these two gents can see something is happening and they start calling out to me and waving their hands. I yelled back that I had found an Arizona Coral Snake, you should have seen them move. The gentlemen walked as fast as they could to reach me. They were like kids in a candy store as thrilled as I was with this amazing find. The three of us together carefully moved the snake out of the road, the men directing the cars around me. While it was a thrill for me, it was obviously something special for them. Tonight at the Elks lodge I know they'll be sharing the Young Whipper Snapper and Coral Snake Story. The happiness I saw in their faces meant more than the rare snake find to me. Thanks for listening.
