Pink Baby Alligator on Veterans Day

Pink Baby Alligator went to the Veterans Memorial Park to celebrate Veterans Day. There were bands, speeches, organizations with information for veterans, and food. The smell of the burgers on the large smoky grill filled the air.

She helped staff the Gainesville Amateur Radio Society. Do you see her pointing at the skydiver in the sky? But best of all – The American Flags waving in the breeze.

To all our veterans, we salute you. Thank you for your service.

Not In Kansas

Rose hiding Sept 2017

Rose was supposed to go with me to Kansas to a meeting. When I got there, I couldn’t find her. I looked all through my luggage. No Rose.

I asked some people at the meeting, “Have you seen Rose?”

“Rose who?” they asked, as they clutched their Pink Baby Alligator books.

I wanted to take a picture of Rose. With me. In Kansas. No Rose anywhere. Definitely not in Kansas.

On my flight home, I got a text.

“Found Rose. She couldn’t find pink flamingos to hide with so she hid in the pink flowers.”

There she is!
