Exclusive Photos!!! Reggie Growing Up in San Pedro.
Hello Everyone,

This posting has a lot of new information. Some pictures that I found of my childhood, some news of a new wrangler from New Orleans, and a Vote for Reggie.




Today I got a hold of some exclusive photos of me while growing up before I was in the lake. These photos are here on my blog first (Sorry Daily Breeze and LA Times), a little treat for my loyal supporters!!



I enjoyed my time with my owners but as you can see I was quite constrained and I am enjoying the freedom of the lake. Luckily my owners played games with me that kept me from losing all of my wild instincts. You can also see that I was very friendly with the other animals that I shared space with and this still holds true today, even though I was mean to some dogs and ducks earlier. Blame that on my need for survival.

Looking at these pictures is very difficult for me because I really miss where I came from. You know what they always say, "You can take the Gator out of San Pedro but you can't take the San Pedro out of a Gator". I miss my owner a lot hopefully they will get off easy, they did give the local economy a boost economically and emotionally.



It is also evident from the photos that I have grown quite a bit over the years. The picture above is one of my favorites, I'm smiling for the camera. I smiled a lot during my stay at the house. I had some great times there but I don't regret leaving because life is about experiences and now I know what it is like to live in many different ways, and I'm sure I will live in many more places before my time expires.



I've got a face that's hard not to love. The ladies used to say I had beautiful eyes for a gator.

Thanks to the source of these photos, I thought they were gone forever. They are extremely valuable to me and the memories they bring back are priceless. Hopefully you enjoyed them and I'll see if there are any more I can show you.

The other big news today is that a man who evacuated from New Orleans and is staying in Los Angeles, turns out to be a gator wrangler. His name is Thomas "T-Bone" Quinn and he has lifelong experience catching gators. I guess he volunteered his services to Councilwoman Hahn and she accepted. Good luck to him, he'll need it.

Visit the Los Angeles Harbor College website and vote to make Reggie the Gator the new mascot for the college. A seahawk is not even a bird so I don't understand why it should be the mascot. Help make me a permanent part of the community. Thanks to Barbara N. for pointing this out.

Also to update the hoax story: James Solvig is charged with criminal impersonation for make phone calls to media outlets as gator wrangler Jay Young. Solvig stated that Young told him to do it and that it was a publicity stunt. Young denies this and seems sort of upset. Check out the full story at the Daily Breeze.

Today there is also a great article in The LA Daily News that talks about how I'm boosting local tourism. The quote I like is "Reggie's tale is the great American tale of success in the face of great hardship and terrible odds". The author makes a strong case about leaving me in the lake. I appreciate the support. Another theme in the article is the environmental state of the lake, I'm not trying to make any political statements by being in the lake but if me being here does result in us focusing more on the health of our natural habitats I will be happy.

Another blog the Sacred Ordinary gave me a lot of print on their site. Check it out it is a very good read on a solid blog site.

reggie needs to know that we love him. He also needs his home where he is. With all the money spent to catch him, you could have built a protective barrier around the lake and let him be free. J-BOY San Pedro Ca.

Hey!! Very good information here :0) I just got inside from washing and waxing my car. It is my prize posession. Took me 3 hours though. So I settled down into my office and started doing some web surfing. Anyways I am in the process of grabbing my associates degree and have spent the last 6 months researching knoxville discount hotels. In the middle of my browsing I landed smack dab in the middle of your blog. I hope you do not think I am invading but I must say it is great blog. Even though your blog is way off base from knoxville discount hotels I found myself cruising through your blog archives for the last hour :0) You have some nice blogging friends. Anyways, I need to get back to my mission. I wrote down your url and feel free to visit me here at knoxville discount hotels. I am so busy so I can only update my site weekly. Keep up the awesome work.
