21 with light snow and winds up to 37 mph, WC +2, some almost whiteouts, of course had to go to store day.   My first outing since last Thursday, next planned one is on the 2nd for cousins Memorial service, seems everyone in the family wants to die and have cold services out on open hills, some of us were talking about that at Uncle Wilmar's out on the bare hill.   I slipped on the ice that day getti ng out of the pickup and almost fell into a barb wire fence. ::)

Around a mile from our Condo is a golf course with a pond near the road. This young fella was sunning himself today on the bank. I believe he lives in this pond. Don't think I'd want to retrieve any balls from this pond. I'm guessing he's around an eight footer.
Reptiles are a big reason I don't live in the South.  ::) Besides, I'd be tempted to plug it.

I recall as a kid there was roadside attraction that sold baby "Gators" as pets, I had one.
He had a terrarium bowl to live in and was fed chicken scraps and other meaty items.
He got to big about 16" and was moved to outside chicken wire pin with a plastic tub pool , from which he escaped to a fate unknown.
The 1950's were different time  :P Alligator bags , belts shoes/boots, and wallets were all the rage.
Alligators went on the endangered lists for a time , It was illegal to hunt or even kill one unless in self defense  . The species responded and came roaring back.
The State then would issue hunting permits to special/dedicated Gator hunters.
Today, Fried Gator tail is served in restaurants, taste like chicken  ;)   and one can again buy Alligator products 

That roadside attraction ?  "Gatorland " which still exist today in the same location in Kissimmee , Florida

Welcome back Roo, good to hear from you.  :)

Thanks for the coffee Slim... and happy holidays to you all too

Guessers say "Breezy with a high of 78° and a 75% chance of precipitation"
Friday calls for 42° with a high of 59° and Saturday will be 36°  and a high of 53°

This will be the coldest season here of this Century,

Afternoon all.

Glad to hear from you Roo.

Sunny and 25 here in Missoula. Was 0 when I got up.   Makes a job pumping water interesting.

The Marvels had a 4 pound rib roast, mashed white sweet potatoes, garden salad, carmelized baby carrots, and  apple pie ( thanks for the help! )

Plenty of leftover meat, and you have to love a good professional butcher!

Happy Holidays, stay safe
