When I was a child, we had zero illegals. We had migrant workers that came in to work in the glad fields, but they were all adults and never came into town. In my graduation class of high school (1962) we had no illegals, but had a few Cubans who had come over fleeing Castro. They were well accepted and generally smart and very industrious. We never locked our doors and crime was very rare. People watched out for one another. If I did something bad, I always got caught by somebody. Everybody knew everybody. Life was a lots simpler then.

That lifestyle change is not specific to Florida...we all have had to learn to revisit how to live our lives.

Huh? Maybe expounding a bit on that comment would help some of us (like me) understand what you're trying to say.
I've been in combat and I can tell you how short life can be!

Ahh, but being married to a New Yorker as I am, and him living in the south...here is the true question...do you order sweet or unsweet tea?

Beer but not Bud so I guess don't fit in.

Don't like sugar in my tea either.

Ditto! Last winter was our first "SnowBird Trip" and we are already looking forward to being a member of the annual migration .

And I'll say again that I am so jealous! I don't get to retire for another 8 years, so I am living vicariously through all of your adventures that I get to read about.

If you like beer, you can still be an honorary Southener
