People for the Ethical Treatment of Love Bugs!

Well it happened, I got served notice from the Above Named Special Interest Group for crimes against Love Bugs.

From the collection of these critters on my front bumper and windshield, I have crossed the line in extermination.

Now I don't care what these "Insects" do in the privacy of their own home, but these Group Orgies on the Highways and Bi ways of our Fair Central Florida is out of control. I think these critters were hatched up by the Hippie Generation of the '60's with free love and all.

I hear 911 calls are up from the bombardment of casualties and Make Sift Morgues are being set up at every interchange around our fair city. I treat them fair, wash them off my truck and get on with my day. But being served notice that I am "Murderer" is unfounded.

I hear John Walsh is coming into the area this year to do a Americas Most Wanted on the main killers of these critters.

Floridians of our fair state unite and fight the invasion and lobbying going on to put these "insects" on the endangered species list. Stand your ground and fight for the cause.

Where is the Great State Gone?

Sorry for the downer of a posting but I have to get something off my chest. Not a new topic but one that has now hit close to home. Crime in Central Florida.

Yesterday after running some biz errands downtown St. Cloud I came back to the Home Office around noon and witnessed a Late Model Green Altima parked facing me on my Cul De Sac. A young Hispanic or Light Skinned Black Male was in the driver side sitting way back like the kids do now adays talking a cell phone. Look funny but I also know the home in which he was in front of has a High School age girl who looked around his age so I assumed he was waiting on her.

As I pulled up in my garage on the phone with Tony G I witnessed another car come down the street, Green Supped Up Rice Burner, and then all cars sped away. Nothing Unusual since all the kids this age drive like a bat out of hell ( god that sounded old) . Went inside and came out bout 2 hrs later to see a Deputy Sheriff down the street talking with neighbors. Neighbor came over to me and ask me if I seen anything, come to find out the house had been robbed and the Array of Human Debris even stole the Owner's Fine Black Mustang which was covered up in his garage.

I felt sick, I could have stopped this but turns out they hauled azz when I showed up. In Broad Daylight these sh--t's did this. The husband is out of town on biz, wife and kids were distraught and to add to it, they couldn't find their Dog, a cute Jack Russell Terrier. I went around the neighborhood several times and down the road but no dog. I came back to tell them I didn't see anything and there barking at me in the house was the Dog, Jackie. Turns out the Crooks had put the dog in a Closet and he was in there for like 5 hrs. till they found him.

Now after that, My wife is afraid and as a Southern Male its in my DNA to protect her and my kids, so out comes the 12 gauge Pump Action locked and Loaded. Florida now has the "Stand your Ground" law which gives citizens the option to blow the hell out of someone in your home or on your property if you feel your life is in danger. Not that I am promoting that, but when the Orange Cty Sheriff goes on TV last year and says's his dept. is overwhelmed with crime that is being brought into the city from other parts of the country and some Third World Trash, its scary. It's like the damn Wild Wild West here. I remember growing up in Cocoa Beach in the 80's and never hearing about Tourist getting robbed or raped, 2 happened this week. Never heard of Home Invasions, hell that's nightly here. Never heard of ATM killings, weekly I am afraid to say.

Orlando is the new Miami looks like, which we all knew would happen, but now it's here on us. Used to be a bumper sticker Natives would have on their cars that said "last American leaving Miami, please bring the flag"

So to my fellow Floridians who are not close to Orange/Osceola/Seminole Counties, stay away for your own safety. Yeah the Parks are nice, Good Golf, but like I said about NYC when I visited there a few yrs ago, nice to visit but I wouldn't want....u know the rest.

Explorer.....Million $$ Question

Last nite on my fav game show '' R u Smarter than a 5th Grader" Steve, Yale Grad, got up to the Million Dollar question with the Redneck Messiah Jeff Foxworthy. Now this guy had $500K in the bank if he walked away and a couple of other people have already done that in the season, but to give him credit he felt like I would have felt that if he lost the question, he would still walk away with $25,000.00 ($12K after taxes in Kalifornia per Arnold). So the question was 5th grade astronomy which he had gotten right a couple of answers before with NASA. So he was pumped. The question was what was the 1st satellite put into space by the US?

Now for someone growing up in my high school years in Cocoa Beach, you think I would have nailed this one....I knew Sputnik was the Soviet Satellite, but for the life of me I had no clue what ours was. He was thinking Mercury....Glenn, Shepard, Gordo and the Satellite but a Spacecraft....Answer was Explorer. He got it wrong and went back down to $25K....

I don't fault the guy at all...Who among us would not take $25K on the quick pick for Sat's Lotto by getting 5 out of 6 #'s. I could tell Foxworthy was disappointed cause he really wants someone to win the big money to help the show grow, but that question I don't even remember from my 5th grade class back in Blountstown in the 70's.

Do You?

Cape San Blas Florida....Forever Florida

Just a quick pic of the Crew I have assembled. And to point out one of the most beautiful places in Florida, Cape San Blas. Having been named one of the most beautiful beaches in the world several years ago it has gotten alot bigger with homes, but it still has that lost charm that I remember as a child.
I have always wondered what it must have been like to be on a beach in Florida before there was a Florida as we know it today. The quite, the waves lapping and seagulls signing. No Boom Boxes or Cars, No Microwaved Tour-asses, and no Ron Jon Surf Shop T-shirts.
I am here to tell you that this place still exist, for a brief time I am afraid, up in Gulf County. My family has been going there for over 30 yrs and I am glad my 3 children got to see their Real State.
Yours in the Bond.

Welcome to my world of a Genuine Florida Native musing about the Sunshine State in which we call home. Lot's of changing going here. Stay tuned for my thoughts of the day about the state of our State.
