Now this is a valuable skill. I wonder if he passed the art on to a disciple?

He also looks like he could be Dwight Eisenhower's father. What historical novelist will rise to this challenge?

From the dress of the folks in Chicken Dinner, I'd have to imagine it was taken from the 30s or so. Which got me to thinking about creating a Call of Cthulhu scenario set on an alligator farm.

Any guy that builds a slide for his alligators is alright by me. They look like they are having fun.

There is no way in hell I would ever let a child ride on a saddled alligator. That's crazy.

Except for that damn kid down the street.

Weird, for some unexplainable reason I was just watching the Leave It To Beaver episode where the kids try to take care of a baby alligator and they visit an alligator farm. I had always assumed they lived in California, so I was all like "Where is there an alligator farm in California?!?"

Fabulous, both in the California sense and in the alligator sense. Now I know where the Addams family went on weekends.

It must have been 1978. My grandparents were taking me to Knott's Berry Farm, and I saw the Alligator Farm out the car window and insisted we go there, too. It was smaller than I expected, but still breathtaking. I remember a big central pit piled with giant scaly monsters sloshing around in the sun. And I remember coming home, wanting to tell my iguana Greensleeves all about it, only to find he'd run away.
