Commentary, sarcasm and snide remarks from a Florida resident of over thirty years. Being a glutton for punishment is a requirement for residency here. Who am I? I've been called a moonbat by Michelle Malkin, a Right Wing Nut by Daily Kos, and middle of the road by Florida blog State of Sunshine. Tell me what you think.

Knock, knock, who's there?- Florida Style

How would you like to see this outside your front door? A Bonita Springs woman did just that on Tuesday.

On Tuesday, a 7-foot, 7-inch alligator came up to her home inside the gated-community Vasari. Like the bear, the alligator was looking for food. But unlike the bear that was scared off by the clanging of some pots and pans, the alligator refused to move away from her front door -- even after a crowd of about 30 gathered to witness the sight.

According to her husband Michael Pachelli, his wife just completed a mid-afternoon walk with the couple's dog, Trooper, an English cocker spaniel. Minutes later, Lori heard a loud banging.

"She looked out the front window and didn't see anything," said Michael Pachelli, whose only close encounter with wildlife had been dodging deer in the suburbs of Philly. "Then she heard it again and went to the front door."

Looking out the sidelights, Lori saw the culprit -- an alligator thrashing against the door.

Life in Florida. It is seldom boring.

Hat tip- Florida Cracker who remarked. "Send the cocker spaniel out and no one gets hurt."
