Back On The Trail.

I now have a computer on my desk and have been looking for the right item with which to end this several months' blogging hiatus, and here it is:

MONCKS CORNER — They were feasting on roast pork and dancing the Macarena while picnicking at Lake Moultrie on Sunday afternoon when a man in snorkel gear stumbled through the tree line, grasping at his left shoulder where his arm used to be.

Blood gushed from between his fingers.

'Call my wife, call my wife,' the man said through a snorkel mask.

Five nurses who were among those at the gathering quickly laid the man on the ground. They put ice on his wound, instructed him to take deep breaths and told him stories to keep him awake.

One of the picknickers, Jerome Bien, traced the bloody trail through the tree line and to the shore where he saw a pool of blood in the sand. About 25 feet out in the water in front of him, the eyes of a giant alligator stared back. The victim's arm remained clenched in its jaws.

'He was just smiling at me,' Bien said

Here's the whole thing, and here are the pictures, if you can handle it.

And then there's this: "Police are investigating the death of a man who collapsed after being headbutted by an armless man in a fight over a woman."

The new parish looks seriously Anglo-Catholic. Nice!
