Love it!

I dont think that a day goes by while home
in the summer that we dont mention Florida.

Texas?
Been there twice,

You would think that I would have known better than to go back for seconds.

Actually, all Florida or Texas shortcomings considered, EITHER state beats ontario.


If someone blindfolded you and dropped you off, how would you know if
you were in Michigan or Ontario?

Well, I guess if I were close to the St. Clair River, and noticed that nobody was there trying to get across and get to the other side, I'd know I was in Michigan.

Oh, I got this one. Take the blindfold off and walk to the 1st gas station you find. If the price is a buck something you are north border. If it's $3 something, well you probably twisted your ankle in a pot hole on your journey, and you are definitely in Michigan. (Unfortunately, that buck plus on the north side only gets you a few cups of juice).....How did I do?

Very funny......but also very true. The first dozen or so is the reason we now spend our winters in Texas. Can't remember EVER having to drive less than the speed limit in Texas (except maybe in a few of the BIG cities, which we avoid anyway).


We tried that for 4 winters, but it got too cold, and seems to get colder there every year.

Yep, I gotta agree, south Texas tends to be cooler than south Florida. For me, however, anything above 60 is fine, and anything above 80 is too hot, so it works for me. But even if it were cooler than it is, the ability to get from point A to point B, without standing in traffic, makes it worth the cooler temps. This doesn't hold true for the RGV which tends to be warmer than the Texas Gulf Coast, but also much more congested as well.

Just make sure you are packed up and ready to leave before the first of May or earlier, BEFORE summer starts.....which btw lasts 6 long months. Don't ask me how I know!


We must be willing to get rid of the life we've planned,
so as to have the life that is waiting for us.

You done good!

Probably the price of fuel and being unable to buy beer in convenience store are two of the major differences
