Image appeared in the Tallahassee Democrat. Caption: A Tallahassee woman found a 6-foot-long alligator under her vehicle in the 3200 block of Majestic Prince Trail at 10 a.m. Saturday, July 7, said Lt. Silas Lewis of the Leon County Sheriff's Office. Deputies called the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission, whose employees trapped the alligator. LCSO Deputy Ted Phillips snapped some photos. (2007)
In the weeks leading up to Alex's visit, I tormented him over the phone with stories of alligators in our backyard. Then, when this image appeared on the Tallahassee Democrat web site last week, my plan was complete.
I e-mailed the picture to my sister Shannon with the following lead-in:
Tell Alex his job will be to check under the car for alligators.
While we were on the phone, she had Alex read it out loud and then she showed him the picture. She said his eyes got really wide and he didn't say a word.
Wait 'til you see what I had waiting for him when they pulled into the driveway yesterday.
