I have to build a house on it 1st... went there last week to remove a " structure" so I could insure the place.

I figure in the spring i will
head back with survey tools and see where I want to build on.
I always break all the clay pigeons,  some times its even with lead.

Build on the high ground. It's easier to defend. Remember a man's home is his castle, and surround your castle with a moat. And fill it with sharks with lasers.  ;D

I haven't seen an alligator in a LONG time. And that's okay with me. 👍 I remember seeing one next to the road while I was driving into town, when I was stationed at Fort Polk, LA.  I only remember seeing the one, not like when I visited relatives in Florida and they were running around all over the place. Louisiana and Florida have the largest alligator populations — there are more than a million wild alligators in each state, but I avoided the swamps in Louisiana. I saw what happened to those weekend warriors in the movie Southern Comfort. ;D The alligators weren't the only thing to worry about.

Putting on the 2nd green today, and just 50' away I saw an 8' gator swimming in the pond. Told the guys with me that if my ball went in water today, it was staying. I also told our caddy that if I hit in the water my tip did not require his risking his hand for a $2 ball.
If I appear taller than other men it is because I am standing on the shoulders of others.

I read the title of the thread and thought, "Better you than me."  :)

I must be bored... I am hanging sheet rock.

I can't just sit at home and do nothing.
