THINGS I'VE LEARNED...

Here we are, back home again! We had a wonderful week.
I thought I'd share a few

THINGS I'VE LEARNED FROM LIVING IN FLORIDA:

*Possums sleep in the middle of the road with their feet in the air.
*There are 5,000 types of snakes on earth and 4,998 live in Florida.
*There are 10,000 types of spiders...ALL 10,000 live in Florida..plus a couple no one's seen before.
*If it grows, it sticks; if it crawls, it bites.
*It's not a shopping cart...it's a buggy.
*People actually grow and eat okra.
*'Fixinto' is one word.
*Backwards and forwards means 'I know everything about you'.
*You don't PUSH buttons, you MASH them.
*All the festivals across the state are named after a fruit, vegetable, grain,
insect or animal.
*There are only four spices: salt, pepper, pepper sauce and ketchup.
*100 degrees Fahrenheit is 'a little warm.'
*Anything below 70 degrees is a 'cold snap.'
*Fried catfish is the other white meat.
*EVERYONE can't be a Floridian...it takes talent!

& one more....

*GATORS are GREAT!

Hey Susan, I don't know how I missed this "funny." And are you saying you've never had okra as a food? :) Florida is a different kind of place - that is for sure. It reminds me a melting pot. So many folk retire there from everywhere. I haven't been in 30 years - not sure why but even back then I could sense a lack of southern hospitality - and it may have been where I was at. But I haven't been back. The girls want to go though. So maybe I need to make a trip. The list was lol funny. Blessings ~ Cathryn

Oh yes, I've eaten okra! I LOVE it.. boiled, fried, in soups, etc.
I'm from Central Fla. (Ocala/Orlando area), and the people there are great!! The list I printed wasn't composed by me (in fact, I left out some that didn't really seem to apply to the 'Florida' I know).
It was a wonderful place to grow up in, but I don't miss the heat or the traffic!
