#139 This Is Florida?

Has anyone else noticed the temperatures lately? We, & a lot of other snowbirds, come to the Sunshine State for the weather. Needless to say we are disappointed with the temps of the past weeks. Winter coats, scarves, hats, & gloves are not normally attire seen in tropical climates but that is what we are wearing. Also it is just a bit too cold for motorcycle riding. Even the Canadians are cold! Hopefully we will see a break in this cold & get closer to the normal temperatures for the area.

I mentioned before how well we have done with our Christmas shopping. I also mentioned that it doesn't matter because we can always find something else to buy. We went to Walmart to return 2 items & bought 8 more. We went to Pennys to return 1 item & left the mall with something else & spent more money at the Hospice tree. I am not complaining though, everything was something we either needed or will put a smile on someone else's face. And the Hospice tree is one of those charities that we remember every year for the help they gave our families in our times of need.

Well the shopping is pretty much done so that means that the wrapping must begin. It took us 2 1/2 days, numerous rolls of wrapping paper, & yards of tape to wrap everything.Well everything that we have bought. I am sure that there will be more to wrap, especially whatever Santa may be bringing Mary. After all Santa is a man & everyone knows that men wait until the last minute to do their shopping.

I am going to call it a day & get off the blog, so we are going to try to keep warm in our home in Largo because....

Home is where we park it,
Frank & Mary


  1. I agree about Florida being cold...and colder than Texas for that matter!!! What is up with that? We hit 77 yesterday and only 57 today...ugh...I need to switch out clothing but who knows anymore. Like John said, if you don't like the weather in Texas just wait a day, it will change. :0/

    Hugs to all!

  2. Hope the weather improves for you soon. Never can tell what mother nature has in store for us.
