    It would be awesome to hang between two of those branches. You'd dangle like Forest Gump!

    Well that's the last time I volunteer to cook for you, Catavarie.
    It's bad luck to be superstitious.

    Heh. Don't worry about the gators; just be sure not to bring Fido or Little Jimmy out down by the lake.

    Gators won't mess with a full-grown human unless said human is doing something stupid to antagonize them. Fido, though, he's small enough to look like lunch. As might Little Jimmy...

    Love me some live oaks. We've got quite a few here in Gainesville, and they're one of the reasons I decided to move to town.

    Critters with teeth and appetites are just more proof that sleeping on the ground is bad for your health

    Yep, down here in Kissimmee, FL we have a place called Gatorland. You should see the Gator Jump-o-roo show. Did you know that gators can jump up vertically their body length when enticed by food? Kinda makes you want to get as high as you can!
