Gator Be Gone

And as promised, a picture of that big alligator that was in my neighbor’s backyard. This is the best picture I could get… from so far away.

I will say, he’s not there anymore. I think the wildlife folks came and got him.

That is why every home in the vicinity of where those things slither about should be equipped with a shotgun.


Exotic shoes and fancy pocketbooks for the whole family.

Awww... he's so cute. Glad he's gone, though. ;)

I think hunting season opened yesterday.

That sound you hear is Jimbo, crapping a peach-pit in terror.

Of course, if that thing lived in my neighborhood, I'd be crapping a peach-pit in terror.

Erica- Someone once said you should start a blog just on your comments. You and Peggy both. What a riot!

Pam- Yeah, he's smaller than we thought. My husband had him at something like 13 feet. I think he was closer to 9. I'm glad he's gone too. That is that guys back yard! That is freshly mowed grass!!

Writersblock- Hey, maybe. I've not heard any shots around here, but I've not seen any gators either.

Elisson- All the more reason I'm glad we didn't have the cash to be able to buy 'water front' property. That's what they do down here... sell the property on the lakes and canals for more as waterfront. No thanks. Waterfront = gators. I'll keep my one single squirrel...

And I am really far away from that gator and in my car, with my boys cheering me on in the back. I'm probably about 100-200 feet away.

Yeah, they can be pests and the wild life folks don't take it too kindly if we just off them for shoes and stuff..

But I have been know to sample some gator ribs on a bar b q grill and fry up some tail and serve it with fried spuds and swamp cabbage
