This Week's Weird News Stories

1. We've been having a lot of rain here in Houston.  Some of our bayous are up to the banks.  So one day this week a lady opened her garage and found....a six foot alligator.  Imagine the shock when their eyes met.  I hope she slammed the door before she called Animal Protection. 

2. A man whose beloved red Austin Healy was stolen 40 years ago finally found it.  An amazingly optimistic guy, he never gave up searching for it.  And his determination paid off.  It turned up in a showroom in California, and he and the car, which is apparently still in good shape and now worth a bundle, were reunited.

3. My favorite weird story.  In a small town in Alaska, population 900, the citizens weren't happy with either of the two candidates for mayor so on a write-in  ballot they elected a cat.

I love number three. The cat certainly couldn't do any worse than some of our elected officials.
