At first, the two don't seem to have anything to do with one another. But I've been fall cleaning, scrubbing, polishing, mopping, vaccuming, bleaching, washing ... all weekend. Then this morning's paper reminds me that there are plenty of places that are dirtier than Chez GMLc was. The inside of an alligator, for one. Too bad somebody could not have wrestled that sucker out of the water and gotten that guy's arm free before the critter swallowed it.Yeccchhhhhh! If you have a strong stomach, go to the photo gallery at charleston.net. Warning: Photo of alligator with man's arm in mouth.
For the record, 11 feet, 10 inches is a huge alligator. The state record is around 13 feet and its articulated skeleton is at the Edisto Interpretive Center on Edisto Island.
