Many of you have asked where in the world I've been.

All I know is that after 7 plus years of blogging and a different lappy, which I don’t like, I seem to have lost my blogging fervor.

Someday, when you least expect it, I will post again.

For those of you still waiting I say thank you.

Meanwhile, I am rather prolific on twitter. Find me: @KeethaB

Surrogate Grandchild


This is my sister, Pam. She is one year younger than me.

She would want me to tell you that.

She would want me to HIGHLIGHT the younger part.

These are her two grans, Cohan and Carson.

They are beautiful, adorable,

Cuddly little grans.

So WHY, one might well ask, is Pam holding,

Yea, even cuddling a GATOR instead of her grans???? I believe she even has a BURP CLOTH on her shoulder!

Evidently her grandmotherly instincts need an outlet and in the absence of her own grans, she has adopted someone (something???) else's.

Cohan and Carson - - - HURRY BACK TO FLORIDA before your grandma finds even stranger and more deadly surrogate grans!!!

How would you like that THING to nibble on your ear????

The albino burmese python, Bananas, that I petted at the same event crept into Joe's dreams and wreaked havoc with his night's rest. I, on the other hand, slept like a baby. Even tho the gator was a cuddler, it didn't hold a candle to the grands!

TS Hendrik said...

Nothing wrong with gator loving. I've been doing an ongoing comic with just such a theme.

JerAng said...

so why IS Pam holding a gator??

podso said...

This is making me shiver...

Keetha said...

That's a scream!

Kristin - The Goat said...

Sometimes a momma just can't help but hold all creatures like that LOL

I'm curious as to what she's doing with the gator, too.

Theresa said...

Well, what you are trying to tell me is your Sister is NUTTIER than you:) I can't imagine holding an aligator.... YIKES! Cute pictures of the grans!

Enjoy your evening, send your Sister to the doctor:)

Tricia said...

Oh.Good.lord. I might have nightmares about alligators tonight. Just maybe. Eek! ;)

lilmomma said...

Heeeeey! I just noticed that if you look close she's not REALLY putting her life in danger, not even an ear. That gator's got his mouth rubbed banded shut. Lol. The other gators must have gotten tired of him talking their ears off. (THAT's why gators have no ears.)

Lynn said...

Did she ever get grounded for leaving hair in her hairbrush? Perhaps it had the alligator effect on her!

Barbara Jean said...

So nice to see you over at my place,
and glad our 'messy bread' made you laugh.

Looks like the EVENT has finally been revealed. Alien Reptiles are choosing human females for their diabolical takeover of the Earth. Good thing alligators taste like chicken when properly cooked. Folks in New Orleans know how to cook these swamp critters.

I'm quite sureI could never hold an alligator! Now a Gator man is a different story! :)

You and your sister look so much alike!

Hi Keetha and hi Pam!
Your grands are very cute and I bet you miss them so much!
Keetha your so funny!
Great post!

Vivienne @ the V Spot said...

What!? WHY?! Unless it's a belt or a handbag, I don't want to get that close to one. Gah!

Nancy said...

Um ... speechless.

Ann in the UP said...

I have younger sisters too! I always introduce them as my "very much younger sisters".

I'm happy to note that I can't detect much resemblance between Pam's grandchildren and her surrogate grandgator. There's resemblance between her grandkids and your grandkids, though.

Linda (More Fun Less Laundry) said...

I have a younger sister too, who I can really tick off when I introduce her as my big sister! hehehe She is now a grandma, though, so I can rub that in, although I am a little jealous of her cutie pie. So, what IS your sister doing with that thing? Never-I would never hold one like that! Linda

I like your sister
I love reptiles and odd creatures also

Unknown said...

Wow she is brave!

Lady Jane said...

That picture gives me shivers, lol... HOLY COW, HURRY BACK GRANDS...

Vickie said...

I love this post about Pam but I'm wondering if you are ok. I check your blog daily and I keep seeing these cute pictures of Pam and her baby Gator. Hope all is well in Badger land.

Debby@Just Breathe said...

I see that the mouth is strapped down but I would really like to know the why? behind her holding it! They scare me.
