My new blog signature

For a while now, I have seen women who post a "scripted" signature at the bottom of their blog posts and I love it! So...I googled how to do it, and of course a blogger mom posted a "how to" on her blog. THANK YOU!!!
If you are interested in how to do this go to My Live Signature and create your own. Once you are finished copy your HTML code. Then (if you have blogger) open up your Dashboard, go to Settings, then click on Formatting and scroll down till you see blog posts add it and save. Now it will automatically show up on every post.
Yup, it's that easy.

just another afternoon at the Cleary's...

i think the gator may be mad!
Hank (on left) and a friend of his that he was training "how to" catch a gator.
...carrying him to the truck.
He was between 6 1/2 and 7 feet long.
Sean, I know you would never believe me ...unless I got proof! :)
A couple of weeks ago we saw two gators swimming in our lake...they were coming dangerously close to the dock and then they were swimming right next to our property line in the back... not a good scenario when you have 2 dogs (one injured and can't run) and three little kids! We called the trapper to remove him, and had no real "action" till today. I went down to the dock to check on the bait for Hank (the alligator trapper) and saw the pole was bent and the rope was under our dock. (Now, for all you non alligator people that is not uncommon to have the bait stolen by turtles and the rope to just be in the lake... WELL, today when I yanked on the rope (not once but twice!!) it didnt move. "HOLY CRAP" was all I could think... so standing on the dock, I called Hank and said, "I think we might have something. I pulled on the rope and it didn't move" As I was telling him this, I am walking up the incline of our dock towards the house... I looked down and was looking straight at the alligator. I then screamed some profanities and ran like heck back inside. When Hank arrived, I got out my camera and snapped away. After he had the alligator's mouth safely wrapped and another man was holding him by a rope, he calmly asked me if I would like to sit on it and get a picture... I hesitated for all of 2 boys are going to LOVE this. Wait till they see their mommy sitting on the back of a gator. My heart is still pounding, and I am sure this is a story I will be telling for many years to come...
