    So I went to bid on a property for a potential client today for routine weekly service today and had a interesting find. I found a friend while there. When called to come bid I usually ask if there are any dogs or others pets that I need to be concerned about. The home owner had stated that they no longer had pets. I now see what happened to the pets.:laugh::laugh::laugh:

    Yeah, I see you and your friend are not that close. LOL.

    My brother in law lives and grew up in fort pierce FL and I have seen him pick up small gators and large snakes. Yes he is nuts.

    I think I would be doing a barney fife impression for sure as soon as I saw that gator!:laugh:

    I guess you would have to just trim around him ehh.

    Is that a large community he is shacking up in? Like a retirement place or something?

    No it is not, just a gated community that has a small lake around it. We live by Lake Jessup which has one of the largest concentrations of gators in FL, it is not uncommon to see several of them in the morning sunbathing themselves on the surface of the water. However I have not encountered them in a lawn yet, the closest I have come was watching a pro bait a gator out of the same community earlier this spring.
    I am pretty sure that the owner would understand if I had to skip trimming that area for a week. :laugh:

    I don't see the problem, the homeowner has supplied you with "gator blades"! :laugh:

    I heard that mulching up a gator is good for the soil...
