Place to honor Grandma Fern, who just turned 100 years old. She's entertained us many times with this story which she can say very quickly and always accurately. Can You?

So here's the deal... you HAVE to say this story OUT LOUD! Do it now... don't cheat otherwise you'll spoil the fun.

Story of Petey, the Snake

This is the story about a poor little snake named "Petey."

Petey was a snake only so big. Petey lived in a pit with his mother. One day Petey was hissing in the pit when his mother said: 'Petey, don't hiss in the pit, go outside the pit to hiss." So Petey went outside of the pit to hiss.
Petey was hissing all around when he finally leaned over and hissed in the pit. Petey's mother heard Petey hissing in the pit and said: "Petey, if you must hiss in a pit, go over to Mrs. Pott's pit to hiss in her pit. Petey went over to Mrs. Pott's pit to hiss in her pit, but Mrs. Pott was not at home, so he hissed in her pit anyway. While Petey was hissing in Mrs. Pott's pit, Mrs. Pott came home and found Petey hissing in her pit. She said: "Petey, don't hiss in my pit; go to your own pit and hiss."
This made Petey very sad, and he cried all the way home. When Petey got home, his mother saw him crying, and said: "Petey, what's the matter?" Petey said: "I went over to Mrs. Pott's to hiss in her pit, Mrs. Pott came home and found me hissing in her pit and said: 'Petey, go to your own pit and hiss. Don't hiss in my pit.'"
This made Petey's mother very angry, and she said: "Why that mean old lady. I knew Mrs. Pott when she didn't have a pit to hiss in."

Author Unknown.

Clues to find Petey.
Go to Jingo at the intersection of 69 and 399. You'll find Grandma's family all over this place, some of their markers are so old you can't read them any longer. My Great Great Grandparents and my Great Great Great Grandparents are here. There's only 3 trees here. Petey is living in the "pit" of the most North Western one.

PLEASE be sure to cover Petey's pit up with some sticks or something... we wouldn't want Mrs. Pott's to find him.

Let me know how Petey's getting along.
