Picturing the Past 12: Snaky situationPosted Tuesday, June 9, 2009, at 9:58 AM
See the rattlesnake in this rock? (Photo submitted by Brenda Burks)
This comes from Brenda Burks, of the Wartrace area, who e-mailed me last week wanting to know exactly what's preserved in this rock.
"We laid these rocks about 15 or 20 years ago," Brenda writes. "They were just field rocks picked up around Wartrace."
This rock now resides beside Brenda's back door, she says.
"To me, this looks like a rattlesnake's tail and head," Brenda says. "Now the forked thing, I don't know, someone said maybe a snake's tongue or maybe a tool used to kill the snake."
Some of us at the T-G office see a tongue, others see a tool.
"Can you guide me in the right direction to find more out about it?" Brenda asks.
So here's where you come in. I've notified Brenda that this is in today's blog.
