One of the podcasts I listened to this morning talked about White House pets - dogs, a turkey (thus began the Thanksgiving tradition of pardoning a turkey every year, not because of militant vegans), etc. They mentioned that there was a president who had a pet alligator.
Remember when Aunt Mary (Mary Hiestand in Hillsboro, wife of Harry) who had a pet alligator? She used to take it once in a while to Hillsboro elementary school for her class (5th grade maybe?). She had a great backyard with all kinds of bushes and stuff for the alligator to roam around and of course another favorite alligator place was the bathtub. I don't remember them having two bathrooms, so I assume that they all shared the bathtub - not at the same time, of course.
