    LOL! I don't let the cat out here because of the coyotes and the bob-cats, but I still have a wrought iron fence around the patio to keep them from coming up to the back door... I can't imagine stepping outside and looking down to see a gator at my feet! It wouldn't have to kill me, I'd die of fright!!

    LOL - how can you be a member here without the occasional, or frequent, covet! I thought coveting was in the forum rules we subscribed to!

    Our kitties have never stepped on dirt, they are total inside kitties. As for the alligators they are more afraid of us than we are of them. It is the snakes that get close to the house, had to shoo one away from the door this evening, just to get back into the house to get a glass of wine. NOTHING stands between me and the bottle of wine.

    I've got a new bottle of Dewers and a half of Chivas. We have some great gators but the MoorHens and the Ospreys are beautiful not to mention the Bald Eagles.

    I'm with Diane; gators creep me out. A shark will bite and let go, a gator will EAT you. *shudder*.

    Cin your place is so beautiful. What a nice thing for Aaron to do! Can't wait to see the pictures.
