Price reduction due to alligators

Alligator swamp

Mark and I used to call the wettest part of the floodplain on our previous farm the Alligator Swamp. So imagine our amusement when Mom sent me the clipping above about a real alligator found just half an hour down the road. If you can't read her handwriting, the note on the side says: "You missed the boat on a possible meat crop!"

Speaking of our old farm, as we come up on our one-year anniversary of moving north, Mark and I decided to drop the price on our 58-acre Virginia homestead to $64,999. Our realtor is currently fielding at least three interested parties, but I thought it was only fair to notify the rest of you just in case you want to throw your hat into the ring. Just think, you could be alligator farmers by the end of the year!
