I've Learned My Lesson

NEVER buy a water hose like this
when you've been discovering these in the yard
It's just not healthy for me to jump so much
when I see a water hose!

it does look like a snake but i thought you were going to say the dogs tore it into pieces like they did the snake...ROFL

That is hilarious!
Had you purchased a green hose, you would've seen a green snake though.

haha

Excellent tip.

;)

That would do it! Take no chances.

Hey. I know what you mean. We bought them because they are supposed to be so sturdy.

Well, they aren't; but they still look like snakes!

The dogs will tell you what is what. :-)

Have a great day!

That's hilarious. My sons left a deflated bicycle inner tube in my garage (purely an accident) and I jumped when I saw it.

Yes, I can see the similarity. Try a green one.

I'd be running for the hills if I saw either of those in the last photo!

Farm Girl said...

Even the dogs thought it was a snake, I don't think I would buy one like that either. I would be jumping every time I saw it too.

Sandy said...

Now that's too funny!!!! Buy a colored hose, it will make a difference :-)

Susan Kane said...

Could you try curling the hose up and hanging it on a hook? Then banging it with a shovel, just in case?

This made me chuckle!

We have one just like that but ours is a connecting hose from one spigot to another. To get water to the other side of the deck, we staked it around the deck ground wall. Every single time I see that hose (after the weeds have been trimmed) I think it is a snake stretched out along the deck & jump.

This made me chuckle and then I thought - do they make a bright red hose?
Just a thought ....

All the best Jan

Saucy Kodz said...

ha,ha after all the snakes we have seen you posting lately, I'd jump too. I think they should make bright orange hoses - do you have orange snakes ):

Lynne said...

Oh my . . . need I say more!

Far Side of Fifty said...

They should make purple hoses. Heck sticks make me jump:(

camp and cottage living said...

Ha-I'm not sure I would ever venture out if I had as many snakes around as you have. Good thing you have your guardian dogs with you!!

Karen S. said...

Oh my! A skittish and o-u-c-h-y kind of moment!

Linda Kay said...

There can't be too much distance between me and a snake. What about those water hoses that contract and expand? Ugh.

CountryMum said...

Yep, that would make me jump too!!

Jen said...

I never would have thought about that, and we actually have a hose that looks just like that one! Good thinkin' (though now I'm probably going to be scared of our water hose ;o)

Can you believe someone would actually think of making a black hose with a yellow stripe? Mean. Just plain mean.
