Did St. Patrick banish snakes from Ireland? Catholic.org says no, but it’s still a pretty good story. So is the story of my cousin, Melissa Fox. Today she banished all snakes (at least the one we saw) from Orange County’s Great Park.
We were at the park for the regular Sunday Farmers Market. The vicious, poisonous, venomous, dog eating, gigantic snake¹ was under our picnic table as we munched away.
Melissa reached down with her bare hands and sent the snake packing!
She is the bravest of the Fox family. Of that there is no doubt.
