    So far I've only seen two gators in the lake on the surface at the same time. Not very big - about 5 feet long.

    There's this anhinga (snake bird) that hunts along the shore right in front of the apartment. He disappears under the water and comes up 50 feet away from where he went under. And he is one bad ass fish catching dude. Any other bird that takes a fish in his territory, he will knock them down and steal the fish from them. Whenever he gets a fish he stands on his rock and does a little happy dance weaving his neck around in the air like a snake as it if to say, "yea I got another one ya know I'm a bad ass dude."

    He looks like this guy. They have to dry their feathers to fly.

    Gary,

    should you decide to take part, those are the rules that the Judge has stated,

    if you like you can judge the next contest and set the rule kinda like
    two shoes that do not look anything like each other or something else....... are you willing to volunteer?

    but two that mirror,as i understand are the rule for this contest.

    Does the keg have to have a modification, or can it just be an out of the box keg and a replica?

    does need to have 1 minor modification{ex: clips, front or hind shaped} ....... and to be a pair {replica}

    you can make it as easy or as complicated as you like, and of any shoe you desire to forge:)

    I think that any extra value should be on the table to start, for all to have as an advantage and that once the rules are set then they are the rules , non changing no matter how adorable an Irish /Arabat(American of Irish decent) farrier might be, curly locks or not!
