the weather is beautiful-- wish you were here!

The weather is so gorgeous this week that I thought I would celebrate by posting a couple of oldish Florida postcards I found floating around on the AmericanPostcardArt website.

No other images so perfectly capture the smiling eagerness and warmth with which our native inhabitants greet the seasonal visitor-- they perfectly epitomize our state.

Of course, I'm really just saying this because I couldn't find any postcards showing enormous cockroaches, handguns, strip malls, meth addicts, pole dancing, sinkholes, sunburns, dentures, psychics, cocaine, sandspurs or nursing homes.

Where else on the Internet can one learn that there is an American Greeting Card Website and a blank sheet of paper masterpiece.

Is it any wonder why I check in everyday?

OK that was brill, L!

I personally wish to greet all frat blockheads and their waiting-on-breast-augmenations girlfrens with the propeller blades of my own Everglades boat. CHOP CHOP!!!

With all your enthusiasm for Florida, that reminds me: Did you ever realize your dream of buying a house?

This week on MTV I saw some daredevils swimming in the Florida gator creeks and levitating the gators (by grabbing them under the chin and raising them out of the water).

It made me realise how much I'm missing out on.
