I've got one for you guys, and it is relevant to Drys.

I got my first Eastern Indigo from Ray Singleton, who was out of the Tampa area. As Tom will tell you, back at that time domestic snakes were generally sold by the foot and Ray's price for Easterns was a whopping $7 a foot! For $49 and a couple of bucks for postage Ray mailed me a gorgeous, 7 foot red-throated male, bagged and in an uninsulated cardboard box that was so small that I don't think the snake had room to stick out it's tongue. I was a sophomore in high school, the year...1962. I kept that snake through high school and college, and he eventually died I believe of old age.

Given Tom's advanced age, he may be the only one around able to recall such things!

Brian
