A Port Arthur Perez Story

A Port Arthur Perez Story,

For Joni and Tommy…

The story is we brought a baby gator home from Violet after your Dad caught the Mom.

There were 2 baby gators I think, we brought one home in a shoe box in the back seat in the back rear view window.

Daddy built a cement pond with a cage with a removable opening with a lock. Mom use to fish and they would freeze the fish so we had food to always feed Ada. We couldn’t pronounce alligator so we called her Ada gator….

Ada got big and could get out the cage. The neighbors all helped to capture her.  Someone found out we had her and brought us their gator cause ???? Not sure but I think it was because it wouldn’t eat.

Anyway we called it “Little”, it was small. In the picture, it is the bigger gator.  Guess Little ended up liking Moms fish & being around Ada cause it got bigger than Ada. They both would get out, then it would be real gator round up in the neighborhood.

I use to tell everyone, that no one got custody of the gators in the divorce and we had to get rid of them when Mom remarried and we moved from 10th. I think they went to a gator farm in the area.

Family News Website

This website is dedicated to the Perez family which I have the fortune of belonging to… As I’ve gotten older and hopefully wiser I’ve grown to appreciate what it means to have a great family…

Not everyone has one…

Years ago, being the geek that I am, I purchased a scanner and of course I needed photos to scan so I borrowed some albums of photos that my grandmother had and scanned them… In a lifetime of decisions, some good, some bad, this was one of the best decisions of the lot… Those photos are preserved for everyone in the family and you can find them here on the website…

Later, being the geek that I am, I purchased a video converter to convert old VHS tapes to digital format, another one of those rare good decisions, and converted all of my video and fortunately I was able to acquire some video that Aunt Chata had converted and those videos are here also…

For the last decade or so we have been meeting every year for a family reunion, something that is a family tradition going back as far as I can remember… And being the geek that I am, I have always purchased nice shiny new cameras and I have taken lots of photos of the reunions, and you can find those here as well…

Years ago, my daughter Jennifer researched the family history and you can find that here…

I hope you that enjoy the website…
