Adendum to last BLOG... (:

Bless this house, oh Lord, we cry. Please keep it cool in mid-July. Bless the walls where termites dine, While ants and roaches march in time. Bless our yard where spiders pass Fire ant castles in the grass. Bless the garage, a home to please Carpenter beetles, ticks and fleas. Bless the love bugs, two by two, the gnats and mosquitoes that feed on you. Millions of creatures that fly or crawl, in FLORIDA, Lord, you've put them all!! But this is home, and here we'll stay, So thank you Lord for insect spray.

YOU KNOW YOU ARE IN FLORIDA IN JULY WHEN. . . .
1. The birds have to use potholders to pull worms out of the ground.
2. The best parking place is determined by shade instead of distance.
3. Hot water now comes out of both taps.
4. You can make sun tea instantly.
5. You learn that a seat belt buckle makes a pretty good branding iron.
6. The temperature drops below 95 and you feel a little chilly.
7. You discover that in July it only takes 2 fingers to steer your car.
8. You discover that you can get sunburned through your car window.
9. You actually burn your hand opening the car door.
10.You break into a sweat the instant you step outside at 7:30 a.m.
11. Your biggest bicycle wreck fear is "To get knocked out and end up lying on the pavement and cook to death"
12. You realize that asphalt has a liquid state.
13. The potatoes cook underground, so all you have to do is pull one out and add butter, salt and pepper.
14. Farmers are feeding their chickens crushed ice to keep them from laying boiled eggs. The cows are giving evaporated milk.

Ah, what a place to call home. . . God Bless Our State of FLORIDA!!

Just a reminder...I'm not complaining! (: I'm just really enjoying the summer this year in FL.

Luke 12:55And when the south wind blows, you say, 'It's going to be hot,' and it is. I have no idea what this means but it seemed appropriate for the topic.... (;

Luke 12:55 finishes: "and it cometh to pass." The heat is here! Do you feel "fall" in the air yet??

princess- we are definitely in the middle of the worst of it. this week has been really bad - as you have indicated. the good news is-- it doesn't stay forever --with this intensity anyway. now i need to get going outside while it is "only" 82 degrees. :-)

pocahantas; I do not feel "fall" yet! Can I hope in your suitcase on the 17th?????

Meems: I know it's bad when I start enjoying running on the treadmind which I usually hate.
