The other day I was outside sweeping our back porch. Our landlord, Franz, walked by and without stopping said, “Please close your windows and doors. The wind is blowing in the right direction so I want to light the grass on fire.” It’s the dry season so you see many fires along the road. I stopped my sweeping, shut the back door, and sure enough Franz burned off all the tall grass just 5 yards from our house. We got in the truck to go pick up daddy and Joshua said, “Well, I bet the black mambas aren’t happy about that!” He’s learned that the snakes like the tall grass.
