A FLORIDA BLESSING........

(Note: If you are not a resident of Florida or never have lived in the hot,

humid South, you may not understand the weight of this blessing!)

-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.

HOLD IT......there's more.......

YOU KNOW YOU ARE IN FLORIDA IN JULY WHEN:

-The birds have to use potholders to pull worms out of the ground.

-The trees are whistling for the dogs.

-The best parking is determined by shade instead of distance.

-Hot water now comes out of both taps.

-You can make sun tea instantly.

-You learn that a seat belt buckle makes a pretty good branding iron.

-The temperature drops below 95 and you feel a little chilly.

-You discover that in July it only takes 2 fingers to steer your car.

-You discover that you can get sunburned through your car window.

-You actually burn your hand opening the car door.

-You break into a sweat the instant you step outside at 7:30 a.m.

-Your biggest bicycle fear is, "'What if I get knocked out and end up lying

on the pavement and cook to death?"

-You realize that asphalt has a liquid state.

-The potatoes cook underground, so all you have to do is pull one out and

add butter, salt, and pepper.

-Farmers are feeding their chickenĀ¹s 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 !!
