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.

Isn't the next exit Bug Tussle?

I know exactly where that sign is. Hope you're having a great time!!

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.

My Back Pages - October

Well, folks, I read seven (count 'em) seven books in October. One I didn't finish but even at that I hit the magic number 50 I estimated for myself by the end of the year. The six books I successfully waded through were, firstly, What Happened, Hillary Clinton's book on her bid for the Presidency. I''m a bit of a political junkie so I get off on this stuff but still it kinda struck me as one long whine over losing.
Next up was the excellent Canyon of Dreams: The Magic and Music of Laurel Canyon. Laurel Canyon was the fabled area outside of Los Angeles where many musicians and artists lived. Known as a 60s enclave, the book takes a look at just who lived there over the last 80 years. A fascinating read.
Next up was Lightfoot, a biography of Canadian folk singer Gordon Lightfoot. He may have been responsible for some iconic folk songs but he was also quite the womanizer and boozer. Enough said.
Then I read Dan Brown's new tome Origin, the fifth in the Robert Lan…

My Back Pages - November

I know, I know, I know I should have reported in before now. But sometimes real life just gets in the way. I attempted 5 books in November. I say attempted because I slapped a big DNF (did not finish) on Neal Stephenson's Cryptonomicon. I just can't seem to get into this guy. It's the second or third of his I've given up on,

Not so the other four, starting with a biography of Stephen Stills called Change Partners. This followed by a hilarious biography of the guy responsible for National Lampoon called A Stupid and Futile Gesture - How Doug Kenney and National Lampoon Changed Comedy Forever.

I ended the month reading yet another biography, this one of the man behind Rolling Stone magazine,. It was called Sticky Fingers: The Life and Times of Jann Wenner and Rolling Stone Magazine. A fascinating read.

So last month I hit the magic number 50 I'd imagined for myself back in January. If I roll this month into my yearly total I'm at 54 books. And I still have Decem…
