My Sentiments Exactly

Yup, "YEE-HAW" about says it all. Been in Fort Lauderdale since March 16 and decided to stay on a couple of extra days. Hey, there's a big difference between 82F and -2C!

BTW, the sign was found on the Florida Turnpike between Fort Lauderdale and Orlando.

And they wonder why the North won the war.

I drive through there once every couple of weeks. It's really not worth a cheer of any kind, even "yeehaw".

Me-Me: Dunno, but Neptune and Jupiter are down here.

Thinkinfyou: Hope all's well with you. I'm not looking forward to going back to -2C!

moooooog: Yeah but the North won what? The right to freeze 6 mos of the year?

Shawn: Giddyup?
You suck. Sorry, as someone from the North in the freezing temps still, had to be said. ;)

Depending on the direction of travel, the next exits from Yeehaw Junction on Florida's Turnpike are:

*Northbound: Kissimmee Park Road (exit 240, for SunPass users only); otherwise, Kissimmee-St. Cloud South (exit 244), preceded in any case by the Canoe Creek Service Plaza @ mile marker 229.

*Southbound: Fort Pierce (exit 152), preceded by the Fort Drum Service Plaza @ mile marker 184.

Don't take a wrong turn around there, unless you're into that whole Deliverance thing.

Seeing signs as funny as this one is one of the benefits of traveling in Florida. Bug Tussle, I think, is in South Carolina, along with Tookey-Doo and Sugartit! As you head back into the Northern climes, keep looking for funny signs like this! Count Sneaky

UR: I understand. For someone currently experiencing 82F I understand your poor, cold, bastard.

Exaggerator: I guess that's no exaggeration...thanks for the precise info.

FTU: Paddle faster, I hear banjos!

Count: And I thought all I had to look forward to was South of the Border. I'll keep an eye out.

Tales From The Supermarket

Bob and Brenda worked in the supermarket. They weren't check-out clerks. And they weren't stock-boys. Brenda sure wasn't. And they weren't employees who worked in the fish section or the deli. No. They were on the shelves.

They hadn't been on the shelves very long but in that short time they'd developed a considerably close friendship.

The chatted all day when the store was busy and at night when the store was closed. They talked about everything. The talked about what raw products they came from. The talked about their manufacturing processes. And they talked about the long routes in semi-trailers that brought them to this store.

Oddly enough the one thing they never made clear to one another was just what product each of them was.

One day when Brenda was commenting on their friendship she told Bob she was grateful for their amity. "Are you Tea?" said Bob, pekoe-ing her way. "I thought I was Tea". You're coffee!"

My Back Pages - November

I read five books last month bringing my year to date total to 61, well past the 50 I estimated at the beginning of the year. And I've yet to get through December.

The month started out with The Nix, the debut novel by Nathan Hill which has been receiving a lot off positive reviews. In it Hill flips back and fourth from the 1968 Chicago protests and 2011 in a desperate search for the truth behind why his mother abandoned him at an early age. In between Hill takes on politics, the media and addiction as well as other aspects of society. It's a well-spun tale and I quite enjoyed reading it.

Next up was the auto-biographical I Am Brian Wilson of Beach Boys fame. This was somewhat of a scattered affair but an interesting read nonetheless. Wilson - or his ghostwriter - however is no Hemingway.

Then it was on to one of my favourite authors, Ian Rankin and his latest tale of now retired Inspector John Rebus, Rather Be The Devil. I never tire of these stories and this is the 21st in …
