If any of you (Tom and Ginny THANK YOU FOR YOUR HELP) had any idea whatsoever as to what my Wednesday was like, you would be amazed (just ask Patti) that I am putting this Post together! Heck I am amazed but HERE WE GO LOOP DE LOOP!

Wednesday Evening November 8th 2023.

It’s Survivor Wednesday Evening.

This one’s for YOU Sam!!

Here is a factual pronouncement from yours truly!

Taa – Daa! I look forward to Survivor episodes at least as much as I look forward to many Sporting Events!!

How can this be? What is .. IS .. and this is my truth!

When I watch a Sporting Event, at least to some degree, “I have a stake in the outcome”. I want “my team” to win or “I want that team to lose”. 

Survivor, at least until the very end of the season when Patti and I do indeed have favorite competitors, is Pure enjoyment. Pure entertainment. Pure pleasure. Lotsa fun. 

Our very closest Survivor Ally is Samantha (“Sam”) in the greater Detroit area. 

Sam assures Patti and me that Baxter, her family pet, also enjoys watching Survivor.

Loving It All Sam!

Now to another Ally, Gullible.

In her Post yesterday, Gullible posted the below photo of a ferocious looking beast.

In Gullible’s Post, the above ferocious looking beast was side by side with a photo of the below gorgeous bird!

And we kidded Gullible by writing in our comment to her Post..

Fun that to begin with you wrote.. “CAW!” croaks the huge red and green macaw perched on the bush next to the viewing stand at Buraco das Araras. THEN on the left is a photo of a crocodile or an alligator!! The connection?

Gullible replied.. 

It’s a caiman, Cap. See the bottom two teeth sticking through the snout? And the answer to your ribbing is that I make a file of close ups that I use as introductory photos. May or may not have anything to do with the post.

When I share the post to Facebook, I know what photo will be used as the headliner there.

So, having absolutely, positively no idea what a Caiman is, I turned to “Google” and Wikipedia.

A Caiman is an alligatorid belonging to the subfamily Caimaninae, one of two primary lineages within the Alligatoridae family, the other being alligators. Caimans inhabit Mexico and Central & South America from marshes and swamps to mangrove rivers and lakes. They have scaly skin and live a fairly nocturnal existence.

Caimans are members of the Caimaninae genus, while crocodiles are members of the Crocodylus genus. While this may seem like an unnecessary distinction, Caimans are actually more closely related to alligators rather than crocodiles.

They are relatively small-sized with an average maximum weight of 6 to 40 kg (13 to 88 lb) depending on species, with the exception of the black Caiman (Melanosuchus niger), which can grow more than 4 m (13 ft) in length and weigh in excess of 1,000 kg (2,200 Ib).

Then we have Caiman Lizards and I am NOT going further with this!

And That Is That Says Baba Kaps!

Smiling. It IS time for Survivor!

Cap and Patti.


For the second consecutive day, in writing this Post, I had absolutely NO problems with our website! Not even one teeny weeny itsy bitsy glitch!

    Indeed Wednesdays have been a special “family night” for Sam and her family, and over recent years you and Patti having a special bond with my daughter and getting to meet her on survivor night back in 2022, very special! So glad you and Sam, Patti and baxter continue this special bond Wednesday nights- survivor fun! Pure joy 😊 ❤️

      Ginny, pure and simple, YOU got us connected and the great “Chemistry” that was meant to be happened! You must have had an internal feeling we all would “click”. For this we thank you for the “Gift of you”. Smiling.. Cap and Patti
