Hanging Chad does not mean execution of your best friend.

Al Gore's favorite State

The State Bird is the Mosquito,
and is it just me or does FL look like a big Wee Wee hanging off the United States?

  Speaking of that- it's hotter in Columbia, SC than FL.  " 100 actual temp today with heat index of 110!!!

IT WAS IN FL WHERE THE FAMOUS WORDS (were uttered, then claimed by Arizona): IT'S NOT THE HEAT IT'S THE HUMIDITY!

Lake Walk-in-the-Water, Lake Wales, Fl.
It got this name because it is rarely over 4 feet deep and you can literally walk across it- NOT ON IT! ;-)

And that is NOT a SINGING CATFISH Mr. Tillett!  LOL!

Well He can sing this one song.......

Catfish are jumpin'
That paddle wheel thumpin'
Black water keeps rollin' on past just the same
Old black water, keep on rollin'
well here- just listen....




LOVE TO ALL AND THANKS TO THE DOOBIE BROTHERS.
WHAT'S A DOOBIE ANYWAY....cough, cough, wheeze.....

  4. I know what a snowbird is (since they often come from here) but I have no clue what a love bug is.

    I think we got up to about 97 yesterday. My bones love it.

  7. I've been to Florida a couple of times and swore never to go back. Of course, I was there during mid-summer and it was boiling.
