Not those Gators! I went Bama for crying out loud!
I mean these gators!
This is where I live, people! Count your blessings if alligators is NOT on your list of roadside hazards!
I also used to live in a house with a pond about 100 feet off the back door. A gator lived there too! He sometimes sunned himself on the bank of the pond closest to my house. I asked my neighbor why nobody had called animal control to have it removed. My neighbor gently informed me that gators are so common in Florida (as in if there is a large puddle, a gator lives in it) that AC won't capture them unless they get over 12 feet long.
Or until someone's dog gets eaten.
That was enough to almost convince me to move back to Atlanta...with or without Hubs!
He compromised by moving me to another house. (You know, two years later.)
Now we just have pool. With no gators in it!
Yup, my state has more to offer than just sunshine!
Just be careful about filling your bucket in Florida...in case a gator moves in!
