Tina Bennett shot video of a massive gator swimming in front of her picture window. The beast eventually turned around and swam into her neighbor’s driveway. Residents are being warned not to feed the gators…on purpose or by accident!
Adrienne Long, of Chattanooga, Tennessee, is going to attempt to set a new world record for the longest tree hug. She is performing the stunt to raise money for the Chattanooga Audubon Society. Long will start hugging a tree at 8 a.m. tomorrow morning. She needs to embrace the tree for eight hours to break the record. And even though she’ll be hugging the tree for 8 hours, she just wants to remain friends. (WRCB)
How about this for a nominee for Father of the Year…Pete Robson of Somerset, England, gave his son, Matthew, a bottle of Macallan 18-Year-Old Single Malt scotch every year — starting at birth. Year after year, Pete bought a bottle of Macallan 18, along with instructions to not open it. Well, Matthew is now 28 years old and has this amazing collection of whiskey… valued at $50,000. Matthew followed his dad’s instructions. He didn’t open the bottles. Instead, he’s auctioning off his collection — and using the money as a down payment to buy a house. So if you’re headed to that child’s birthday party this weekend…I’m sure they’d love a bottle of Scotch or a tall bottle of Kettle One….let me know how that goes over. (Food & Wine)
