(Kid youíre not going to get hurt fallen 8 feet) boy do I remember those days !

Iíve done just about every trade there is, And if you canít take a joke you shouldnít be in construction....Snowflakes melt in a fast environment!
How is gatorland? I always wanted to go when I was younger.

Yeah it’s pretty cool watching them feed the gators, it’s grown over the years and they did rebuild the gator and the gift shop.

To me if you seen it once been there done that!
