My aunt, who lived in the hills of Tennessee in a small shack,
was what might be called a typical hillbilly. It was a very
cold winter and they only had a small stove to warm the cabin.
Every night, while sleeping on her back, she would feel a very
warm heavy sensation on her chest. One day after a week or so
of this same feeling every night she was stripping the bed to
wash her sheets. When she took off the bottom sheet she found
there was snakes living there. They would huddle to her chest
at night for warmth.
