Towsacks of snakes

(from Brenda M.)

The car came to a screeching halt in front of the house. The doors flew open — out poured kids and Dorothy. “Get the hoe! There’s a snake loose under the seats!” One of the snakes found a hole in the towsack. It wasn’t unusual to have two or three towsacks of snakes in the floorboard of the car or under the bed at home. They had to be kept warm and safe. And don’t hurt or kill it. Catch it & sack it up, again.
