Florida winter

Green trees, bright flowers and sun

Many water fowl!


Warmth steams around me

Yellow sun smiles brightly down

Duck pecks crumbs nearby.


Feet throb and complain

"You've walked much too far today!"

Go soak in hot tub :-)


We had a wonderful holiday. It wasn't nearly long enough, in fact after a whole hour in Florida, my elder daughter and I agreed that we should move there! Maybe I'd feel differently in July, though :-)

I'm sorry I didn't manage to connect with any of you this time, but I'm already planning another trip for my 25th anniversary.... maybe then we can party!

Being native Floridian, there is certain ways to tell when winter happens; 1. Some people actually turn off the air conditioners. 2. That is the day you see the postal carriers wearing long trousers. 3. There is real smoke comming out of chimneys. 4. Spring garden tillings begins. 5. And if there is going to be a life threating, super severe cold snap; the people turn on their lawn sprinklers so their kids can see that it does get cold enough to form ice outside.

As for summer; if you like 105% humidity, misquitos flying in formation, lizards in your slippers, roaches arm wreseling you for that last french fry, then you will like Florida. Don't forget to take your transulator with you to the grocery store where you will hear 20 different langugages, bring your own water theres not enough to go around now; be prepared to have a new comer tell you about how you know nothing or don't do things right. If your thinking of moving to Florida - sorry, your 50 years to late.

Mickey’s sad and blue

Park’s all silent and darkened

Trish and crew gone home


Sunshine’s warmth grown cool

Sea shells lanquish now, alone

Trish and crew gone home


Beaches empty too,

Waves, stilled, in silent repose

Trish and crew gone home


The Fountains of Youth,

All the fun and the Laughter,

Shine in northern eyes


Trish and crew gone home

Canuk winter pale?

(What’s that rumor we’ve all heard?)

No tan lines; do tell!


Nudie Camps for Trish?

Clothing optional beaches?

WE will never tell!


It IS Florida,

Neighbor’s eyes are miles away,

What would Parson say?


Topless in the sun

Or bottomless, on the run

Nekkid, just for fun?


Ole Robert and me,

on an imagination

vacation for two.
