“Read The Operating Instruction Carefully Before…”

I’ve always laughed at the insurmountable safety instructions, operating manuals and various warnings labels whenever opened a box of a merchandise. I’ve been mesmerized by the terrorizing typographies and drawings of safety labels of goods. Labels warning  buyers not to put their hands in the garbage compactor, not letting their toddler diving in the bucket of whatever because he or she might dies or not to drive over a cliff into the void with the new SUV.

I am under the shades of palm treed while Laszlo clearing the  access roads roads and the drive ways from a foot of snow in the Catskills.

Readers, let me tell you, today, I have changed my mind forever.

We had an early show today. Since the weather was beautiful, we have decided that after the show, we take the dogs to a newly discovered giant dog park with a big lake only 15 minutes from the exhibition site.  (I am not telling you the name of the park and where it is because I do not want to see your crowd of fancy dogs or your barking Pumis there…)

As soon as we entered the park we let the dogs off leash. Our redneck farm Pumis were in heaven, running chasing at each other and harassing other dogs. In less than twenty minutes, they discovered the lake and they were in the water, splashing it and swimming to cool down.  After about an hour, we collected everyone and drove back to our motel. While the dogs were stretching on the floor in the room after their exercise, I emailed the photos we took in the park to my husband, Laszlo, to show him what a fun day we had.

and fetch...

and fetch…

I barely pushed the “send” button on my phone, when the phone was ringing.  It was Laszlo. First I did not get it, than he asked me again, wether we did read the sign next to the lake. I opened my phone and looked at the pictures.

On one of the photographs, there was the sign;

“The presence of alligators is likely in this lake. Alligators are drawn toward canine and lake shore activity…!”

Thanks god nothing happened, however, this incident certainly  added a new note to my northern paranoia about the potentially dangerous fauna of the subtropics.

So please, always read the signs and instructions before engaging anyway in irresponsible behavior…
