    It's always better to be safe than to be sorry, Dub. Thanks for the comment.

    You're welcome, crios. I hope that this blog post offered some perspective to this subject of discussion. Thank you for inspiring the subject matter for this post. As for this rumor, I'd say that regardless of its credibility, it makes for good Texas storytelling in any case.

    It sounds like you received some good advice, awilson. We can't always rely on what we hear, so we also need to pay attention to what we see, as well as what all our other senses can alert us to. Thanks for your comment.

    Its hard to imagine a rattlesnake that don't rattle. I'm go they do so I can stay clear. I was taught as child when out hiking keep your eyes on the growing. You never know what you'll step on!

    I'm also a fan, sir. It's the best part, in my humble opinion. Thanks for the comment, rudeman.
