5 Things I love about Florida (in no particular order)
The booming frog chorus that erupts in the evening especially after it rains. I hear it and picture that singing frog from the Looney Tunes cartoons and it makes me smile.
TV Weathermen/women in Florida. This has to be one of the most amusing, sometimes tedious, then suddenly frantic jobs in the world. Sunny, chance of rain in the afternoon. Sunny, chance of rain in the afternoon. Sunny, chance of rain in the afternoon. HURRICANE!!!
Tourists. Love 'em or hate 'em, they're amusing. And they provide a boost to the economy.
Wildlife. Today on my travels I came across the following: wild turkeys, a Redbird pair, pond turtles, a 3.5 foot carp, a red-tailed hawk, a monarch butterfly.
Walking barefoot in rain puddles. Yes, I've gotten to do a lot of that this week. This was one of my favorite activities as a kid. Rolling up the pants legs and sloshing around the streets through all the puddles. And now that I'm an adult, I don't have hear my mom yelling at me "You girls get out of those puddles!! You're going to get ringworm!!"
