great escape: a long short story

We went to the pond to "hunt" some crappie for our supper.










The boy "kasded" his line into the algae.











Then he saw an alligator.










Suddenly, it flew toward us.











A tree monster and a mud monster grabbed our clothes and shoes.







We got away in "cool" truck just as an "understorm" rolled in.







This is the alligator that "made us terr-ble" and "always chases people."
