    Don,

    So on the large water fall, I take it the aligator is extra!!!! I couldn't believe it, but the Pasadena Humane Society actually had a 5' aligator they rescued. They were cleaning its enclosure when we adopted our dog. Quite amazing the hissing sound it made. And you think this smile has teeth , that ain't nothin.

    On the camera, the prior owner sounds like my Grandfather who was a sheet metal contractor. Every tool he had was treated like gold. Well kept and each with it's own home. I inherited some of his tools and even though some of them are probably older than I am they're still in great shape.

    In your Grandfather's day a workman's tools represented a very sizeable investment and were his most precious possession. Without tools he literally couldn't feed his family.
    Time's were hard then, unlike today's throw away society which, BTW, has to change.
    He'd probably have eaten that Croc, teeth and all!

    Yeah, they also made tools to last back then. Now, unfortunately, it usually costs about the same to just buy a new whatever to replace that which has broken as compared to repairing what has broken. Sad.

    I don't know if he was adventurous enough to eat the croc, but its head definately would have found its way mounted to the wall!!!
