Here is one of two alligators that were rescued by my mother's co-workers. The pair were named Ike and Gustav after the hurricanes that orphaned them (I don't recall which one this is). I meant to get recent pictures when I was out of town last week but never got around to it. Next time I'm down there I'll get new pictures and hopefully a video of me getting bitten by one of them.
I hope you all are (still) having a good end of the year. Things will still be busy for me for the next week, but I'm going to start visiting all of you lovely people starting tonight. Not you personally, just the blogs you have created.
