Mannlicher,

Why do you live in Florida? Seems like you would be happier elsewhere. You're welcome to come up during deer season and hunt with me in SC.

The panhandle is nice. I worked about 10 miles from GA and 1 mile from AL for 9 years of my adult life. Lots of deer/turkey/peanuts/ducks/doves/bass/alligators and Baptists.

Going to look that area over for a few days this January . I lived in central florida for 10 years and 22 years ago there were a lot of nutjobs living there and apparently it is getting worse by the day.



I liked what I saw there OEH, spent a couple three weeks there a few years back, then drove through the area again in 2012, the pro gun, no abortion billboards is what initially got my attention, I thought as I drove, there's some smart conservative folk in these parts.


Lots of hardcore baptist street preacher types around P'cola. When I lived there I routinely got handed cards and flyers telling me my soul was headed for the great fire pit pit below if I didn't show up at their revival. Lol.

It was pretty amusing mostly. I'd just smile, say thank you, and round file it in the closest trash can. Kinda sad to see the young kids getting sucked into their BS though.


That would not deter me from moving there, an influx of NY , NJ,MA, RI and CT license plates now we are talking.



Same/Same here men, a bunch of thumpers wouldn't bother me one bit, they're pretty damn funny really.

Most of them are pretty damn funny! Some are just sweet old ladies, some obviously have a screw loose.

I really liked Navarre when I lived there. I'm sure its become far busier than it was 2 decades ago though.

Thumper: Son, do you know God?

Me: I've talked to him but don't know him, and neither do you.

Me: Hey wait, where are you going? what did you want to speak with me about? grin

After being discharged in 1981 I attended FSU in Tallahassee. A lot of people referred to north Florida as "south Georgia", being a southerner I loved north Florida; I could fish in the gulf and hunt in Georgia or Alabama to my hearts content. It was sparsely populated and that was OK.
I moved back almost two years ago to help my parents who are in poor health and when this runs it course I don't think I'd stay in FL (better half wants to go back to SC to be close to her family).
Over the years I have lived in the Daytona Beach area, south Florida, Sarasota and now Pasco county and there has been a lot of change to the state since the 1980's . I don't think it's a change for the good. Too many people for me (and all of the inherent problems that come with people).
If I had to stay here it would be the panhandle.

Starched, I was born in Hernando Co., have lived in Dade for near 10 years, currently living in Citrus, 'family' moved here from AL back in the 1850's, if they sprinkle or bury me here I'll be generation #6........ hope your not too near the sinkhole in Land-O-Lakes...............

They do turn me off. I meant when they turn those plates in and apply their new found Floriduh plates to their yankee vehicles. grin

Careful, Sam, I'm white AND Hispanic. Ethnicity and race are two different things, although I will concede the point there is a lot of "mixing'...

Ya, Floriduh is hazardous to your health. Cuz didn't even start namin' the critters down here that will ruin your day. One of the worst is Yankem Jerkimous, AKA yankees. They migrate during the winter and some wind up staying. They come at you from every direction these damn aliens.

Shotguns are your friend.

Don';t move to Floriduh, it ain't friendly here 'bouts.

I am..........disturbed.

I always wondered what the job application is like at Hooters. Do they just give you a bra and say, “Here, fill this out?”

well, Miami is a necessity. That's where the money is. Gainesville is where we live. Kids are near, grand kids, business and friends. Happier somewhere else? Maybe. Life is what it is, but that does not mean I can't bitch about some stuff from time to time. smile

my biggest gripe about Hispanics in Miami is that I have one heck of a time finding anyone to speak English with. laughing
