Today is a day to celebrate. Spring arrived this morning, Friday, March 20, 2009 at 744am. I will be missing the much cooler weather as I live in Florida. I am not looking forward to the very humid, sticky, sweaty, extremely sunny, no rain for days, dry days of summer and you have to wear sunglasses 14 or more hours a day or you will burn out your corneas! Basically have them on the nightstand and put them on before your feet hit the floor in the morning and let them be the last thing you take off at night!!
AND let's not forget the gianormous electric bills as we have some of the highest in the state thanks to Lakeland Electric, and probably the nation! I'd like to shoot Benjamin Franklin for inventing Daylight Savings Time. The AC just has to run longer, course he most likely didn't have AC way back when! I even go to the grocery at night when the sun has gone down!
The birds will be singing, the flowers will be blooming and all the pollen from the oak trees has gone somewhere. I am so glad I don't have allergies!! And the snowbirds will be headed back north! Being from the deep south, ya know I had to say that or I wouldn't be living up to my moniker of Florida cracker but I prefer Southern Belle with genuine southern drawl!! Just kidding about the snowbirds, they don't bother me as I am half yankee, unless they are on my side of the one way street going the opposite direction!!
Today's Friday Funny ****When I'm broke, I'm broke!!!
A little old lady answered a knock on the door one day, only to be confronted by a well-dressed young man carrying a vacuum cleaner.
'Good morning,' said the young man. 'If I could take a couple of minutes of your time, I would like to demonstrate the very latest in high-powered vacuum cleaners.'
'Go away!' said the old lady. 'I'm broke and haven't got any money!' and she proceeded to close the door.
Quick as a flash, the young man wedged his foot in the door and pushed it wide open.
'Don't be too hasty!' he said. 'Not until you have at least seen my demonstration.'
And with that, he emptied a bucket of horse manure onto her hallway carpet.
'If this vacuum cleaner does not remove all traces of this horse manure from your carpet, Madam, I will personally eat the remainder.'
The old lady stepped back and said, 'Well, let me get you a fork, 'cause they cut off my electricity this morning!!!!
Have a terrific week-end everybody out there in blogland!! Love you girls!!!
