Okay, I KNOW It's Winter

But....




Florida:  I'll get back to you in about six months, when walking around Jacksonville is like walking around in a gym sock.  I've lived there in July.  I know.

Australia:  Your time's coming, mate.  But, you do have some beautiful women, so you have that at least.

Before you know it...back to the Jersey Shore

    1. Speedos will do that. We had dinner with some friends a few weeks ago. During the conversation, we discussed taking a beach trip to Cape May (in July!). At that point, my friend's wife commented, "We should buy a couple of Speedos for you and John. Hahahahahahaha...."
      I replied, "Oh, dare me."
      Yes. Yes, I would. Not for long. But, for long enough.

  4. I'm thinking your Jersey Shore dude shouldn't go in the water - he'd sink for sure, and I'm not sure if the Lord could make that thing float.

    1. The Jersey Shore is quite the show, that's for sure.

  5. Women are called "Sheilas" in Australian. And men like the one in your picture are called "Bogans". Now you can go there and charm them with your knowledge of their lingo before they kick your ass.

    1. Sheilas, I knew, but "Bogans?" How very cool to know that.

    1. I could've posted that picture of "Man-Fish Love," instead...?

  7. Okay... good points:
    1) Tomorrow starts Lent, which means 40 days 'til Easter... and daffodils... and bunnies... and jelly beans. :)

    2) The day light is getting longer, which is hopeful, but kind of sucks because then we can SEE the snow longer, and well, that's depressing.

    3) I do not live in Jersey, because that is something no one needs to see.

    1. And you live quite a bit farther away from Jersey than I. If the wind's right, I can even hear the gunfire from Camden.

  9. It's raining; it's cold; it's Florida. I won't be surprised if we get down to freezing tonight.

    Love,

    1. Reminds me of when I lived in Orange Park in January. I used to love calling my family in Connecticut and telling them, "It's going to get so cold tonight, I may have to shut the windows."
      In July? My family would call ME and say, "Laugh clown, laugh."

    2. It's 45 degrees right now. That's pretty chilly, but it could be worse.

    3. It was 20 yesterday and I was walking around without a coat.
      Wouldn't do that in October when it's 50.
      All about perspective, I suppose.

  10. Yeah I agree on unseeing that last photo, but it does crack me up! Being a person who does live smack in the middle of winter, and the windchill advisory that is in effect for us today, those quotes from Floridians and such don't always cut it do they?!

    1. Hey, could be worse.

      Oooh, now THERE'S a visual.

  11. It was all good until you said "Jersey Shore". Those could be distant relatives you know! HAHAHA

  14. As a Brit, I'm not familiar with the word 'summer' - can you provide a concise definition?
