Good morning. I'm Deb Amos.

A New York City woman got an early Halloween scare when a seven-foot python paid an unexpected house call. She was washing her hands in the bathroom when a snake head popped out of her toilet. As you might imagine, she screamed, then called a plumber who rushed over to remove this unwanted pet. Now, when she brushes her teeth, she keeps an eye on that toilet bowl and the number of the plumber.
