    Do you believe in guardian angels? Today Beau and I went for a walk at the nearby park preserve. Just before I was about to let Beau off his leash to explore, this frumpy old man who looked EXACTLY like the very crazy Harry Partch passed us on a bicycle. He complemented Beau's attractiveness then gently warned us about the possibility of rattlesnakes in the area. This made me think twice about letting Beau loose on his own so we kept walking, leash and all. Low and behold about five minutes ahead were these two big fat rattlesnakes blocking our path. :scream: Oddly, the old man seemed to have disappeared into nowhere. (by the way I've been going to this park since I was 10 and I've never once seen a rattlesnake)
    -coincidence. There are no guardian angels. :drama:
    -Harry Partch is your guardian angel
    -they exist....but not in this case.
    -purple rattlesnake

    I think I have a psychic in me:
    Yes, you do.
    No, you don't.
    Not sure how to react to your delusion!
