some observations

Ft Lauderdale is one enormous strip mall.

It is also a suburb of Manhattan, and where old Jews go when they're finally tired of the northeast.

People in south Florida use a hell of a lot of endearments with strangers. I was called "sweetheart" "darlin" "sweetie" "hon" and "dear" more in the last week than I've been in the last 5 years.

First sun of the season should not be two hours worth between noon and 2pm on the beach, including enough swimming to rinse off the sunscreen.

I would trade in my uncle for the nice funeral home guy. Can I do that?
