I don’t remember a time that the preserved baby alligator didn’t live a Grandma and Papa’s house. Dave didn’t either. Our grandparents brought it back from one of their many trips to Florida ad a souvenir. We both thought it was pretty cool when we were little, even though we weren’t allowed to play with it, it was just cool, a real alligator from Florida, what a neat souvenir!
The little gator was sitting on top of the stereo by Grandma’s computer. I brought it out to show Dave. Neither one of us wanted it, but it brought out a little bit of talking, us describing to David and Laura how cool it was when we were younger. I suggested that it would be a neat toy for a buck or two for a child at the estate auction.
Laura put together the box with a paper of pillows on it and spread the silk flowers around it. Dave and I said goodbye to the little gator we had been so fascinated with as children. It wasn’t so much that we were sending the gator away. We were having to say “goodbye” to that innocent time. With the closing of that box, our reign as grandkids was over. We had a great run.
