5:45 PM -- I'm sitting here in my second story office, looking out the glass door to the tiny porch that overlooks the bricked streets of Camp Bowie Blvd. in lovely Fort Worth, and then I see this little guy:



I guess I'm in a pretty wild neighborhood after all.

re: Ssssssssnake
There are only two things in this world that I am truly deathly afraid of - snakes being one of them. (The other is bananas, but that's a whole other story) I admire your bravery for staring that vicious creature in the eye and taking his photograph. I would have curled up in the corner of the office in the fetal position for however many years it took to convince me that the snake had to have died by now.

So I've got a 4-foot rat snake at my office door.

I've seen one of these on my front door:

Maybe it's not a shock that I end up here a few nights a week (if only for the free WiFi):

I believe it was headed to DFW to get on a plane.

to SJC and then back to Sand Hill Road? You're right, it was probably a due diligence visit.

He asked me about my burn rate and then wanted me to validate his parking. And then he left. Shortest meeting in history.

The river near my house just turned to blood. Is that bad?
