This has turned out to be a beautiful day down here in Florida. Last night was COLD (Okay you Yankees, don’t laugh) that is cold for Florida. We were in the mid thirties. It doesn’t bother the fruit or veggies until it really drops. But it does do that sometimes.There is a myth about Florida, that it is warm all the time, not so. Not so, when we used to have a boat (Hint used to have, want another I think) and fished early in the morning it was nice in a heavy warm suit. As the day progressed the sun gets the place all warm and toasty.
And go back a couple entries you will see a good photo of the Southernmost point (Along with a real good picture of Anna Mae, Woody’s wife, Okay he is on there too but….lol). He also had some good pictures of Warm sunny Florida.
There were plenty of times on the lake and saw no gators, cause they were dug in. They love the hot warm weather, and then you will see them everywhere. Most of the time there is no threat, but you don’t want to pet them, that is for sure.
We had breakfast with, then visited some, with our favorite Florida preacher, Bishop Carter and his wife Juanita. He ‘found’ an orange tree he didn’t know he had, and gave us a large bag of juice oranges. They are delicious.
WE went for ‘Mail Call’ today, probably the last of the Christmas cards. A lot of folks are sending e-cards, I don’t blame them, postage is becoming expensive.
Thanks for coming by the log.
