It's time for another half-assed "Anything Goes Saturday" here on GDB!
Since 1893, people have been enjoying the sights and smells of the Saint Augustine Alligator Farm. That's in Florida, folks. And guess what, you can still observe hundreds of cuddly reptiles with their unblinking, hungry eyes. I know, I know, alligators can blink - but this one can't! Notice how Albert lets leaves accumulate on him so that he will blend in with his surroundings (I do the same thing). From the expression on grandma's face, she is not so sure she likes being this close to Albert, even when he's dead. Be cool, grandma! Favorite detail: the little girl (dressed for a Sunday outing?) happily skipping in the background.
Now we head north to Toronto, to Exhibition Place - a 197-acre that "...includes expo, trade, and banquet centers, theater and music buildings, monuments, parklands, sports facilities, and a number of civic, provincial, and historic sites. From mid-August through Labor Day each year, the Canadian National Exhibition is held." The CNE features "... games and a midway, among a host of attractions." So now you know! Mostly I just like this fun vintage photo of the midway; the "Kitty Kats" game to our left has a cat that reminds me of Scratchy!
