Amazed by how much I like the "tree-shaker" show. It's actually called "Swamp People" and it's sort of inveigled itself under our skin. It's the best show on TV and we both watch religiously and like it equally as much. I like the view of a boat coursing through the water and the proud jaw of Troy, the master alligator hunter who superstitiously wears the same -patterned blue shirt every episode. Then too there's the soap opera of Joe and Tommy, the classic story of the generations: the hard-working man and the young up and comer rebel with lazier ways. A sign either of civilizational decline or the traditional carpings of every older generation against the younger.
