So, I was driving through a nearby town and I saw this 18 foot alligator in front of a store.
"Now there's a great photo for my photo a week LJ post: an 18 foot long stuffed gator!" I said to myself.
But I didn't have my camera with me. So, I figured I would just go home and get the camera and take that picture.
However, the alligator...vanished. During the two hours it took me to get home and then back to the store.
I like to think someone just saw it and bought it while I was gone. The store was closed so I couldn't ask. Maybe they took the gator inside when they closed. But, here's another thought...that store is right next to a swamp...maybe...just maybe...it was a live alligator and it walked away.
Anyway, no picture of it for you guys! So, I guess it never happened. SIGH!
Here's an iron horse surrounded by birds who love muffins. The lady walking rapidly past...is on the edge of some further swampland. And the birds wade there...and demand muffin scraps from anyone they see coming out of the bakery that installed this horse.
