I’ll never forget one day Gary brought in this large wooden box at Neely’s. Said there was a Mongoose in it. We were young and gullible at the store, and we were CURIOUS!!!
Well after coaxing him to let us all see, out pops this SPRINGY SNAKE!!!
We All Jumped out of our skin!!!!
Laughing like Crazy, he left looking for his next Victim!!! That was Gary..
Condolences to All the Family…
