Florida in July

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.

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 place 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 motorcycle wreck 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 chickens crushed ice to keep them from laying boiled eggs.

The cows are giving evaporated milk.

Ah, what a place to call home.

God Bless The State of FLORIDA!!!

I was down there last year taking our winter home to Lakeland.

100 degree days makes me think about how nice air conditioning is.

Actually late Aug to mid Sept are the hottest days in Fla, so you have a long way to go before it cools off.

For those of us who were born and raised here we wouldn't have it any other way. I ride to lunch 2 or 3 times a week and play golf starting at noon. I love this place in the summer, for those that don't, Delta is ready when you are!
