If it isn't wild boar 5 miles from me--a 9ft Alligator-358# caught yesterday about half mile from here---highly unusual this far North in 'Bama--lots on the coast--speculation is someone let a pet loose.

Lady opened her front door and there he was.Whoa Mamma!!!:D

I know you Yanks and Ajla will get a kick out of this one--:)

The guys that caught him said he raised up on his back feet--wish I had known about it -it would have been, 7:)

The lady is doing O.K. just a bit rattled--

Big News, here, in my neighborhood---:)

One of the deputys on the scene said , I wonder how much that thing weighs. The other said I don't know and I'm not getting close enough to try and weigh it---Fireworks going on for a while.
Gator was taken about 60 miles S and put in the river.

NASA Photo--Oil Spill--if you draw astraight line from Chandaleur islands to Mobile--the island you see along that line is Dauphin Island , and the Sea Lab---disl.com--lots of info on the website. And it's unbiased.

And what is scaring the man on the left? He reminds me of someone in an other painting. Goya? You know which one I mean? Give you something to think about, while I prepare supper! :D

The man on the left is Matthew, he is so enamoured with counting the taxes , he doesn't know what is going on around him.

"Calling of St. Matthew"--

Oh,Ho,-- Goya--;):)

A little wink from Caravaggio?--To not show the hands would detract from the painting theme.

"The Taking of Christ"?

The stance, and the expression, doesn't that remind you of the prisoner in El tres de mayo?

Ajla I put the light over the left shoulder and moderately high.(Taking of Christ)
The fellow on the left has me puzzled.

The Goya, looked at a breakdown and the fellows(central subject) right hand has something interesting about it.

Rather ironic , one of the best things that we have, Gulf of Mexico has the potential for dying, yet some are so concerned about Dear Abbie and what is the best Vitamin for a pet.

Now Ax, you know I love you, but some of us have to focus on the mudane, every day stuff in order not to go completly nuts. There are so many issues that I get totally bonkers about and the one you mentioned is high on the list.
That is one reason I love this forum, in a small way , we are teaching people to take care of the land and eat fresh healthy food, to teach their children and grandchildren that there are some things we can do something about. Then you pick your battles.

Chuckle--speaking of G'kids I have my hands full trying to help steer them in the right direction, by the time they are adults I wonder what it will be like.
I hope they look back and say ,well Paw -Paw was right.:)

I'm fortunate, they are all well behaved.

No problem it is apparent that the media isn't showing the total picture in the Gulf situation.
I really get miffed at the media--top stories -Lindsey Lohan-has made friends in jail--etc--guess thats why I made the post.
Oh well, to each their own I guess---:)

What more? The grapevine came down, off the house front, too heavy!
Tomorrow I'm off for a week to do my social bit with the handicapped.
Hopeful sounds on the oilspill on the radio here.
And now I'll get organized!! ;)

Going to prune it back?Love grapes.
Neat that you do the handicapped volunteer work.Young, geriatric or mixed?
At least the leak has been stopped on the spill--after 100 days and and 30-50,000 barrels a day the impact is still here, thats a lot of oil at 45 gal per barrel.

Enjoy your work---Ax

Will try to have some more paintings posted by the time you get back.

An autobiography describing details--and I mean non-fiction--of an immigrants account coming here from the Old Country during the 1900's.
I've used it in my geneology and my G'Pop had many tales of his own to add to my
storehouse of documentation.

Type in Grisak Family and read it online--you won't be disappointed.--Eye opening read.--enjoy:)
