A constant reminder that we are no longer in Iowa!! No, this is not an alligator farm. We see this large creature on almost a weekly basis as we deliver Meals on Wheels.
Our usual route is to deliver Meals on Wheels on Tuesdays, and after our last delivery, we drive past this lake where at least one, if not two or three of these beauties are lying in the sun. After all these years, I am still in awe of these ugly, dangerous creatures.
Lucky for us, we are doing an extra Meals on Wheels run today. Alfredo Alligator, "See you later!"
By the way, if you have a couple of hours free during the week, volunteer to deliver Meals on Wheels. It is the most heart-warming experience. You are greeted by the same people weekly and they are so appreciative of a hot meal, your smiling face and just a friendly hello. There is often a dog that greets you that also needs a little scratch behind the ears. I usually check to make sure the house feels warm or cool, depending on the weather and ask them if they are doing okay for the day. We may all be in that position one day. It is just a very little way to give back to our elderly or infirm. As for the alligator...no hot meal today for you!!!
