You don't fancy one around your neck when you've got your leotard on then Gordon?

I often cover the tort tables up when I have people in the house for boiler services, etc., as I don't like to advertise what I have and if they're nosy enough to ask I usually say there are snakes behind the covers. It means they never want to accept a cup of coffee or tea but get their job done and disappear as soon as possible. The kids laugh at me because they know I'm not keen on snakes and yet I use them to get shot of people I don't want overstaying their welcome.
I'm such a big liar but it works a treat!

My son was offered a king snake last year by someone off to university. He rehomed their gecko but knew better than to even ask if he could take on the king snake as well.

I do love your pagan/celtic wolf avatar, Ceirdwyn.

Thanks It's what I do in my spare time apart from knitting or crochet. Design celtic knot work, and do pyrography.
Here's a selection of my work.
I think my favourite is the dragon, but the sheer amount of work that went in to the dulcimer soundboard was immense.

Oh wow - you are so talented! I love the green man. I have a few of them in the garden.
The dragon is really beautiful.

who is wearing a skimpy outfit ? or not it appears ! where are all the green men gone !!
I love teannach...that eye....and what stunning photographs. He would look fantastic black and white too.
Are those wood carvings ? - that's amazing you should be commissioned by game of thrones with that dragon. Any of your snakes at all? CB

Like others I am not a snake fan, but I don't know why, yours look truly beautiful.

Perhaps I will take more of an interest.

They are wood burnings or pyrography (lit:fire writing), you use a pyrography tool a bit like a soldering iron, with either a solid point or a wire tip (I upgraded to wire tip a couple of years ago, it's more of a pro level thing, entry level models are basically soldering irons) to draw your design and burn it straight into the wood. It's a bit like using a tattoo machine, there are no second chances, the mark you lay down is there for good.
I do have one I did of Righ years ago. It's playing card sized and is stuck to the front of his viv.
