No Vacancy

I really do not remember the exact day I woke up and said, “Hey, I think I’m going to start a cbnb.”   If you are unfamiliar with a cbnb just imagine searching for the perfect get-away vacation destination at a luscious Airbnb… got it?   Now, imagine you are a snake looking for a perfect resting spot… got it?   That is evidently what I have – a Coopbnb.  My chicken coop has become the new hot spot for snakes to relax in the rafters.   Over the last several weeks, I have gone to the chicken coop to feed the chickens and...
