Yes, sports fans. It’s again that time of the year when the Usual Suspects assault Southwest Florida. As in the past, there will be many cocktails, lots of laughs and a constant gator watch.

Play nice while I’m gone.

  3. My Mom, who is visiting, and I saw a couple kids in Publix today, fishing poles in hand. My Mom said, “Catch anything?” and the group of boys, probably aged 9-12, said, “yeah. We caught some bass. And a gator…” and then a kid reached in his pocket and said, “And a citation”. And then another kid reached in his pocket and said, “Me too…” We don’t know if they got the citation for fishing without a license or for catching a gator. We were laughing too hard about how they presented us with their citations. Not so sure their Moms and Dads will think it is so funny…

  4. Maybe a gator will get Debbie Wasserman Schultz the Jewish Nancy Pelosi . If so , please get it on video . I’m curious whether the gator can survive after a meal like that .

  5. Heck with the gators. Watch out for the pythons. If they can swallow a small deer whole – - may your hair protect you, Jimbo!

  7. Jimbo …Have a great down in the Cuban province of Florida, just kidding….there is a ton of Bolivians & Columbians there as well.
    Anyway…..when you get back home Google up a program called Wild Justice. They had a program on recently about California Game Wardens responding to a sighting of a man with known hostility to law enforcement camped out next to a raging river with an alligator tied up to a tree next to his camper.
    Obviously alligators are not known in California & are illegal to have as pets.Given the mans known hostility additional wardens were called in to assist in the confrontation.
    After surrounding the mans campsight & maintaining a watch, one of the officers had to crawl through the grass, trees & bushes to get a visual on the alligator in case the suspected bad guy tried to release the critter into the river when they rushed him .
    After a lengthy period of time the warden got a visual along with camera footage of the beast which was about 8 feet long with a huge rope around its neck , tied to a tree & basking in the sun.
    The rush was now on & they converged onto the unsuspecting dude only to find the alligator was made of rubber & not a live one.
    The dude turned out to be quite friendly & when asked …why do you have a rubber alligator as your pet? His answer was …well, you do not have to feed it!
    A lot of people would suspect this was a contrived & fake program but I do not think so.
    I think I told you I served as a Deputy Conservation Officer here in Pennsylvania for 7 years….believe you me, I have been witness to some really strange behavior & incidents. You do not have to make up shit…reality serves the purpose quite well.
