there you go...
that is why... no matter what folks want to tell me... im very nervous on
snorkling or wading in gator country. very nervous. ive had vivid dreams
where i was very glad to wake up. ( god's warning system )
gators are not to mess with in any way.
danger. danger.

how about that... you got the director of a nature center out in 4' water
weeding plants knowing that a very large gator named mojo wanders in there.
maybe he listened to those same folks urging him on saying... "naw them
gators will not bother you". why that makes me think he was not liked much by
his co-workers. which makes me think next time some fellow nanfa member
suggests i jump on in there! just trying to get ride of casper. :(
there was a fella in wakula springs that wanted to touch a gator while
snorkling. after being repeatedly warned and told to exit the area by rangers
he got to touch a gator from the inside. cold vicious beasts. thats like
those folks that say sharks will not bother you. i read about our men in the
pacific war holding onto debris watching their buddies.
yeow. that director will have a story to tell from now on.
