Last weekend, I took a road trip to see some very dear friends of mine, Ken and Dana Davidson. They just recently moved to Dana's family farmstead southwest of Wichita, Kansas. It was there that I met Dana's mother, Frankie, and had two of the most enjoyable days I could imagine. Actually...I couldn't imagine MOST of the visit...it was hilarious and magical, all in one!
When I first arrived, Ken and I put on our near-matching broad-brimmed hats, and jumped on the tractor for a tour around the 160 acres of land.
Okay...now I get to the "unusual" part. As you'll notice, I am wearing a HUGE skin of a giant snake!!! As it turns out...this snake skin is part of Dana's family lore...a "legend" that involves Dana's Grandfather "Lem".
After I posed for a few photos with the snake skin...Dana brought out a red photo album, and proceeded to show me proof of this whole story, with photos that have been handed down through the generations! On the left is the python (sans it's skin) and on the right, is that skin hanging from the barn...over 25' long!
What a GREAT weekend!!!
