Did a DJ gig last night (yeah, yeah I know but the $$$ was good) at a ranch in the high desert area of N.CA where I live. It was an outdoor wedding with a nice crowd, nice location. While everyone is eating and toasting the new couple, two of the kids who were there had gone "rattlesnake hunting" in the nearby hills...............they succeeded !!!!!!!!! while the bride was in her glory of enjoying her moment and all the attention, here come these kids with a 4' rattler (dead) on the end of a fishing pole!!
Initially I think the crowd thought it was a prank with a rubber toy snake. Once they realized it was real, about a third of the attendees left their tables to see the snake. Impressive snake, 11 buttons on the rattles. The boys then proceeded to carry the snake by hand over to the bride who while not frightened, really didn't appreciate the side show.
Other than that, a fairly normal evening
