Lizzie, that's gorgeous! You have a backyard canal? Wow! But alligators

Thanks, Taxy. Well, did have when we came down in '06. I'm a landlubber now. Can't say I miss having gators in the back yard; they're not very good neighbors.

So pretty!

Gators are starting to come more inland. Falls lake near Raleigh, a man who was fishing hooked a young one just before Labor Day Weekend!

Yes, the Chrysler Building is on my "to-do" list if I ever get to the States.

Oh dear, New England in the fall to Monument Valley via New York and San Francisco - I'd better get an extended visa! And that doesn't even begin to cover the Everglades and the Great Lakes.

Did you get rid of the alligators or did you get rid of the canal and the 'gators were collateral damage?

Aw, thank you! It's a great place to live. I missed the civic league board meeting tonight to feed the master gardener students. So much to do
