A is for Alligators ... Pictures :)



They do, indeed!






I see lots of pretty Halloween decorations. I am more in favor of the harvest variety (pumpkins, hay, etc.) than ghouls and goblins, but I was charmed by this little broom amidst the pansies.



Have a good day, y'all. Time for me to put in that promised hour on the book.

Oh my goodness! Reminds me of when I lived in Florida and I had to pass by a small lake going to and from work....

Wow! Your place looks like real fun for kids!

Best,
Suma.

Bish, I figured you might be intimate with these critters.

Suma, it is really fun being here, and from what I hear from the natives, it's nice 10 months out of the year. The two summer months can be oppressively hot and humid, but when you have the beach, life's a beach ...

Yikes! Alligators impress and scare me at once...

How cool! Those alligators are kind of cute. :)

I love that little broom- very tasteful. I'm not into scary decorations, either. When we first moved back to America, my kids were terrified of everything Halloween because they'd never seen anything like it before. We stick to hay and scarecrows and pumpkins around here.

Happy writing!

Faith -- same sentiments here. A bit of awe and fear.

Amy -- Halloween was a very scary holiday for me when I first moved to this country and I was 14. I still don't like anything macabre. I much prefer All Souls Day and All Saints Day!

EEEEEK!!! That is scarier than any halloween trick or treat to me! Steer clear of them, my friend. Steer clear!

Oh.. and I am not a halloween fan, either. I love autumn, though, and all the things that go with it! Leaves, pumpkins, perfect days with no humidity! :)

Donna, I'm thinking we should have a croc to scare little kids :)

I also don't like the secularization of Halloween. Read here about the Christian roots: http://www.americancatholic.org/messenger/oct2001/family.asp

Catholics celebrate all Saints on Nov. 1st and the night before is hallowed (holy).

I like that fellow sunning himself, at least in a photo. :)
