I hope you are enjoying sunny, warm Florida! It hasnt been too bad up here yet! But next week will be a different story. High only in the mid 20s. But we are leaving for a 12 day cruise to the Carribean. Leaving out of New York on the Norwegian Jewel so I will be basking in the sunshine and warmth too, I hope! #10521293

OK then !! This fellow is about 18 inches long and probably 2 years old . He was sunning himself on the boat ramp at Grassy Waters a Water Catchment area in Western Palm Beach County.
Want to thank all of you for your concerns over my safety when shooting Gators. Believe me when I say I am VERY CAREFUL & ending up as Gator Lunch is THE ABSOLUTE LAST WAY I WANT TO LEAVE THIS LIFE. Then again the way I do want to go would only land me in Hell ANYWAY ;O) !!
