Other Animals and Nature
Date: 1 December 2007
THE FIRST MEETING... Now Nessie (the big one, and my god-gator) and Polly have lived together in Dick's trailer for months before this, but Polly was always behind closed doors.
We're not sure if Polly was a Polly or a Paulie...
So Dick decides they will "MEET" in our atrium for our semi-annual alligator party... should make for some excitement, eh? Like SEEING an alligator isn't enough for everyone, we need a sticky meeting to amuse us.
NESSIE STOPS, OBSERVING... CALCULATING... HMMM what to do to make the alpha-gator statement? It must be done...
POLLY makes a run for it... "nothing good can come of this" she says..."why oh why are we doing this? I don't think she can see me here.. MAN is that a whopping big alligator... oh man... oh man..."
NESSIE IS NOT TO BE DISCOURAGED... Polly may be faster but NESSIE is persistent and God-Mom Colleen's house is HER territory.
"AH HA, THERE IS THE NEW WHIPERSNAPPER!!! Now we will come to an understanding nose to nose..."
OK, the picture you WON'T see here is NESSIE grabbing polly by the snout and not wanting to let go, and the stupid photographer who shall remain nameless (Colleen) was so busy yelling for Dick to break up the rolling alligator fight she was afraid was starting at her feet she failed to snap any more pictures, but once they were seperated CALMLY, BY DICK, WHO ABSOLUTELY IS UNPHASED BY ANY ANIMAL GOINGS ON, including two locked together nose to nose...
Polly could only back up while protesting with the slightly open mouth... thinking to self... "Am I still alive? Am I missing any teeth? OK, BACK UP ... BACK UP... BACK UP... NOW RUN!!!!!!!"
THEN HIDE !!
Then NESSIE was able to go on to be the star of the day, as it should be.
This is our ex neighbor who we invited over.
Nessie remembers where her "ROOM" is... the sunken heated bath, of course.
AHHH a nice soak after a hard day of asserting one's dominance and being beauuutiful for the camera.
MAYBE A LITTLE DIP IN THE POOL...
HMMM THIS LOOKS COMFY... and I have no rules... I get to look in the mirror and walk anywhere I want in my God Mom's house.
HEY SNAKE!! What's been going on around HEA? (Notice snaggle tooth showing on the left... Dick swears Nessie does not have a snaggletooth... what the heck is that then, I ask ya?)
"HEY KID WITH WEIRD PIERCINGS AND RAT IN HAND... YOU BETTER BE FASTER THAN ME..."
Never forgetting to smile for the paparazzi... LOOK AT THOSE GORGEOUS GREEN EYES.
I LOVE IT WHEN THEY MAKE MY OWN SWIMMING POOL IN THE SUN...I'm that special.
Dick with Nessie. Feel the tenderness...
OK these weren't necessarily in timely order, but it made a better story.
We miss Dick and Nessie...
They are living in Chicago now, but maybe can come back to Calif some day.
