Alligators

I am participating in an April challenge, blogging A-Z in the month of April. I'm getting a bit of a late start. I'm so late, that the list is closed, and I can't even be an official participant. But I'm going to do it just for fun. Here goes:



For my A post I will discuss alligators. I am glad I do not own an alligator. Alligators are scary.

My nephew and his wife live in Florida. On a lake. Alligators live in their lake. They water ski. There are probably alligators in the lakes on which they water ski. Whoa! That might be great incentive to stay UP on the skis! (Something I never mastered.)

Once an alligator catcher came to their lake and captured a big alligator. My nephew can tell a very funny story about it, how the alligator guy spoke in one-syllable sentences. "Yep." "Nope." Maybe alligator catchers don't talk much, because they need to pay attention to the water and the alligators.

I am VERY glad I am not an alligator catcher. And that I live in Minnesota where alligators are not.

Ohhh another challenge??? Cool! I so enjoy reading these - and admire the discipline required to blog a full challenge. One of these months I will try your recent photo challenge. For now I'm mostly too wrung out at the end of the day to even read my bedside books!

My goodness--is that a photo YOU took! I'm glad I don't live where alligators are either.

I posted this so funny photo to my granddaughter who is currently living in Florida for the season and asked if she knew this guy! So funny. My daughter loved the photo. Thanks for making my day on this one!
