I’ve noticed tonight that I got an unusual amount of hits on my blog from people googling about the alligator on the 15th hole at the RBC Heritage Golf Tournament today. My blog post came up for these searches because in the last entry I included Monday’s tournament photos, as well as a photo of a gator in our lagoon taken yesterday. The title of the blog “Heritage Golf Tournament — and an alligator on our lagoon” sent people who wanted to know more about today’s incident to my blog, only for them to find out nothing.

THIS is what happened, and Ray and I were there – watching from the stands across the fairway from the lagoon in question. Let’s put it this way … I could hardly watch. I couldn’t believe that Brian Gay’s caddie had the nerve to do this. Most times alligators are not aggressive, but they can be if provoked. And – what the caddie did to this gator constitutes “provocation”! I’m sure there *has* to be a rule about not having to hit a golf ball if in danger from an alligator. Here is the PGA video of it:

Oh — and Brian Gay ultimately did not hit the ball well.  He had his back to the lagoon as he was hitting, and I’m not sure I’d want that knowing a rather irritated alligator was swimming behind him!  If it were me, I’d just want that shot done and to move quickly away from that spot!


Cats in Pots

And, now a word from our sponsor – who brings us a little lighthearted levity:

It’s cute … it’s so very catlike.  Cats just love to find small compartments just their size where they can fit themselves!

I love this song:

The last two days I’ve been traveling.  Our “winter” in Hilton Head has come to an end, and we are now back on Long Island.  So – while I drove this 900+ mile journey, I listened to Sirius / XM radio “The Blend”.  This song played several times over the course of our two day trip and I became fascinated with it.  Once home, I looked up the words, checked out interpretations of the song, and found several videos of it.  This is the cutest of all the videos I found on Youtube…

I love the music’s special affects, and the words are clever.  I’m sure the meaning of this is different to many who hear it.  To some – probably because of the odd musical sound affects – it may sound like someone is on drugs, but I don’t see it that way.  To me, it’s about the loss of childhood – and maybe innocence.  I have fond memories of playing outside at dusk when the “lightning bugs” would come out, and occasionally I’d catch a few and put them into a jar, though I generally let them free after inspecting them for a while.  It was a time of carefree life and innocence

This music – to me – is wanting the world to slow down.  Life is going too fast, especially now as I watch myself age.  I need to capture a bit of firefly enjoyment and appreciate it in a way I didn’t do back then!
