I can't help picturing it from the gators point of view, " wow, martha, I was just on the interstate playing speed bump and along came this snowbird, he had a really crazed look on his face and his knuckles were white, that big bus was a challenge and I'm not sure if I won that one, but man, did I get it's baby, lol"  Bob, I tryed but I just couldn't control myself lmao.

Bob,
   If it was a real gator, did you stop and get the tail? Nothin' better than fried gator tail.  Jack

The reason Bob didn't stop is because he was afraid it wouldn't restart. You know how those old MCI's are   ;D


Hey Bob, speaking of old, the stable mate made it up Sunday just as planned. Yep, we had planned for a few 'opportunities' along the way.  ;D

The starter lost a part - the pivot pin for the bendix fell out, so they just push started it with a ranger pickup. I guess that DD residue did for the ford what spinach did for PopEye  ;D

This from a guy who watches a turtle spend all day making his way from the woods over to the garage/wood shop entrance to check out what's going on. Then picks him up and carries him right back to where he started from! Last time the turtle was seen he was cussing Cody, " Thanks alot Bub! You just cost me a days travel time before the storm, and put right back where I came from! !@#%*?:*&^$%# SNOWBIRDS!"
LOL! Sorry Cody I JUST COULDN'T RESIST! ;D  BK  ;D

Let me get this correct.  You ran over REAL LIVE alligator and it tore up your toad?  Wow!  Up here in Oregon it is deer that cause the pain. Could be worse....might have been a big moose up north which may have ended up thru your windshield and in your lap....all 1000 pounds of it....and in a very very bad mood.  AUUGHHHHH!  Was anyone hurt? (other than the alligator?)  Good luck.  :) :) :)

It was the rubber tire tread. The PETA crowd can stand down as no blood was shed & the real alligator is still alive & well, living on a diet of smaller animals.  ;)

Bob's been busy setting up base camp & getting 'Mama' happy.  ;D  8)

 Bob if you find a Gator in the road and you really think it needs to be moved. Call a professional. You have his number.

Thanks Jim. I'll certainly keep your advice in mind. I wonder...are alligator wrestlers like cops in that when you need one they're all off having coffee and donuts?

You need to be careful what you say about this type of person Bob. You dont want an angry paramedic showing up at your next heart attack!!!!
