Chip :

Ask B G about the time he was collecting some H. formosa in Washington
Parish on the North Shore of Lake Pontchartrain. It seems that a 12'
female gator had a nest nearby and was in a very large culvert. She did
not take kindly to B G stomping around that area and wanted him for
lunch. Needless to say he left mama with the formosa and what ever else
she wanted excluding him <BIG GRIN>.

Snakes and gators, we have more than our fair share here in South
Louisiana. Why, I could tell you stories that would curdle your blood,
if I had time that is. You wouldn't believe the size of the mossies here
.... some are as big as cranes.

Why I saw a cajun once who had two medium sized gars strapped to his
feet water skiing. When he finished skiing he ate the gars .... shucks
a cajun will eat almost anything that doesn't run faster than he does.

Stay well,

In 730 Metairie, La. waiting for more cold Yankee weather which is on
the way.
