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.
