Walk on the Wild Side..

.... I plan on retiring to Alaska... why?... well, it's still pretty wild up there... one of my Buds lives just outside Anchorage, and he's had Brown Bears walk through his back yard... that's just awesome... I want to live in a place were there are things in your back yard that can (and will) kill and eat you if they get the chance... I just love the idea of that....

..I would retire to Florida.. but, it's too damn hot down there.. although, according to this story, they do meet my qualifications....

A nearly 10-foot-long alligator bit a woman on the leg and arm and dragged her into a Sanibel lake Wednesday evening as she was gardening near the bank behind her home, Sanibel police said.

..see what I mean?... talk about adding a little excitement to your silver years.. heh...

That's where I'm from, originally.....FL, i mean. I sure do love our beaches on the Gulf Coast. :)

About two months ago a friend was attempting to shoo away a 7 foot gator from his puppy at the edge of the lagoon behind his house. It was early morning, and he slipped on the dew and slid into the gator. It took five minutes for his neighbors to run around and pull off the gator while he held on for dear life, just trying to keep the jaws closed. It didn't bite him, but it pummelled him to a pulp with its claws and tail. He was a walking bruise. Hilarious.
