BROUGHT HOME A FROGGY


Pithlachascotie River ( an Indian word that means Black moron will ruin your civilization, white trash-man!)




iT IS 5:59 a.m. , the day after Colt McCoy did NOT win the Heisman (WTF--the award is diminished...) and it is 68 degrees here in Palm Harbor Florida and 37 degrees at the farm in Huntington.Rosie and Sadie are asleep, nocturnal felines roam.

Watched it's a wonderful life yesterday...



Went to a Jeep Rally in New Port Richey yesterday, poor turnout and was disappointed, then cached in John Grey preserve, with a wild Riverrunning through it...

obama winning a peace prize is like a day without sunshine


You know you’re a Floridian if…

Socks are only for bowling.

You never use an umbrella because you know the rain will be over in five minutes.

A good parking place has nothing to do with distance from the store, but everything to do with shade.

Your winter coat is made of denim.

You can tell the difference between fire ant bites and mosquito bites.

Anything under 70 degrees Fahrenheit is chilly.

You pass on the right and honk at the elderly, but pull over for a funeral.

You’ve driven through Yeehaw Junction.

You could swim before you could read.

You have to drive north to get to The South.

You know that no other grocery store can compare to Publix.

Every other house in your neighborhood had blue roofs in 2004-2005.

You’ve gotten out of school early on Halloween to trick or treat before it got dark.

You know that anything under a Category 3 just isn’t worth waking up for.

You dread lovebug season.

You are on a first name basis with the Hurricane list. They aren’t Hurricane Charley, Hurricane Frances, Hurricane Ivan, and Hurricane Jeanne, but Charley, Frances, Ivan, and Jeanne.

You know what a snowbird is and you are not crazy about them.

You know why flamingos are pink.

You think a six-foot alligator is actually pretty average.

You were twelve before you ever saw snow, or you still haven’t.

“Down South” means Key West.

“Panhandling” means going to Pensacola.

You think nobody over 90 should be allowed to drive.

Flip-flops are everyday wear.

Shoes are for business meetings and church.

No, wait, flip flops are good for church too, unless it’s Easter or Christmas.

Sweet tea can be served at any meal.

An alligator once walked through your neighborhood.

You smirk when a game show’s “Grand Prize” is a trip or cruise to Florida.

You measure distance in minutes.

You have a drawer full of bathing suits, and one sweatshirt.

You get annoyed at the tourists who feed seagulls.

All the local festivals are named after a fruit.

A mountain is any hill 100 feet above sea level.

You think everyone from a bigger city has a northern accent.

You know the four seasons really are: almost summer, summer, not summer but really hot, and February.

It’s not soda, cola, or pop. It’s coke, regardless of brand or flavor – “What kinda coke you want?”

Anything under 95 is just warm.

You’ve hosted a hurricane party.

You go to a theme park for an afternoon and know when to get on the best rides. (Space Mountain during the Electric Light Parade!)

You understand the futility of exterminating cockroaches.

You can pronounce Okeechobee, Kissimmee , Ichnatucknee, and Withlacoochee.

You understand why it’s better to have a friend with a boat, than have a boat yourself.

Bumper stickers on the pickup in front of you include: various fish, NRA, Nascar, Go Gators, and a confederate flag.

You were 5 before you realized they made houses without pools.

You were 25 when you first met someone who couldn’t swim.

You get angry when people say ” Florida isn’t really part of the SOUTH.”

You’ve worn shorts and used the A/C on Christmas.

You know what the “stingray shuffle” is, and why it’s important!

You recognize Miami-Dade as “Northern Cuba.”
