I met a Copper head!

Yesterday I went about my task of ridding our trees of ivy. The kittens went too, and since I had a phone (that my sweetheart insisted I keep ) I took some pics. Now if I can get them transferred to this system I will post them.
Just minutes later, i reached thru the ivy  and felt a sting.  Oh no, methinks, BEES! but then something moved in the ivy, twas a small 18"-2' copperhead. I killed it  and immediately the little finger began to throb, uh-oh!!!
Long story, I called Sherry who was visiting old school friends. We spent 7 hours in the emergency room.
I am okay will be missing here maybe for  a couple days.  1 finger /1 hand is too much trouble typing lol
see u soon.
Fortunately the pain is less than I expected today! I'm good. But y'all watch 'em snakes, they cannot be trusted.
