"Will Campbell On Florida Living"
Uncle Will's been thinking again.
Here's what he has to say...
* * *
Three months ago I couldn't hang a shower curtain
and now I can assemble a portable generator by flashlight. . .
My yard is ankle-deep in standing water,
and the County Commission reminds me
to water lawns only twice a week
on my designated watering days. . .
My neighborhood's hot topic is a new and improved fastener
for plywood hurricane shutters. . .
Seasons here are:
Summer, Still Summer, Not Summer, and Pre-Summer. . .
with a hurricane every weekend . . .
Whenever I feel blue, I start breathing again.
Last year I had my chance to do the traditional thing
of shooting my own turkey for Thanksgiving, ...
man ... you should have seen the people scatter in the meat department.
I eagerly await November 30,
and it has nothing to do with Thanksgiving or Christmas. . .
* * *
November 30th is the end of our hurricane season, folks,
also known as The Florida Fear Festival.
