Ironic Gator in the Pond

Took the kids for a long due fishing trip. A new fisherman was in the water paroling the pond. While we did catch fish, I was on guard with the kids. The gator stayed away from us. Kind of funny two of the Swamp People ( Joe & Tommy ) was in town signing autographs.

After watching all those gator shows like Gator Boys and Swamp People, I feel like I could handle that gator, LOL!

No really, I'd be so scared! But I think they're more scared of you so there's not much to worry about. Just don't fall in!

OMG. I would have been both excited and scared. That's ironic that y'all saw him while the Swamp People cast were in town. I miss fishing so much. Thank you for this post.

HOLY COW! I guess you must be used to that. Certainly not anything we've ever experienced while fishing in our favorite fishing holes in Illinois, lol. My kids would have loved that!

Tammy S said...

I don't know if I could go fishing there. It would scare the heck out of me knowing there is gators in the water. You are much braver then I am.

That gator is too close for my liking, I would get in the car, close the door and wait for the husband to return. I am a big chicken.

jamie braun said...

Courtney B said...

Amy B said...
