A newly elected Florida Republican sent grenades to fellow members of Congress, prompting one aghast Democrat to say “not even George Santos could make this stuff up”.
The grenades were sent by another freshman, Cory Mills, a member of the armed services and foreign affairs committees.

Stamped with a Republican elephant, the inert projectiles came with a letter in which Mills said: “It is my pleasure to give you a 40mm grenade, made for a Mk19 grenade launcher. They are manufactured in the Sunshine State and first developed in the Vietnam war.

I hate those things. Need to use the tweezers from my Swiss Army Knife to remove them. Grabbing them with your fingers just impales your fingers.
Up here, we also have wild cactus that have needle like 1-1/2" spines. My dog comes out of the woods with a whole "leaf" stuck to her sometimes. Wish she would learn to avoid them. Yeah, getting the sandspurs out from between her toes can be painful for both of us.

I think they're wrong. It's really Spring. The farm folklore is that it won't freeze after the full moon in February here. That's on Sunday and the ten day forecast shows some upper 50's but nothing lower.

F**k Florida. After years of research, we retired to the Eastern Shore in Virginia on the Chesapeake Bay. We still get winter but nothing like Pennsylvania winters and summers are not as hot and humid thanks to being on the water and a nice breeze more often than not. Boaters paradise, low taxes, friendly people, no crime and no traffic. Might be a bit rural and buggy for some.

King Arthur: I am your king.
Peasant Woman: Well, I didn’t vote for you.
King Arthur: You don’t vote for kings.
Peasant Woman: Well, how’d you become king, then?[Angelic music plays…]
King Arthur: The Lady of the Lake, her arm clad in the purest shimmering samite, held aloft Excalibur from the bosom of the water, signifying by divine providence that I, Arthur, was to carry Excalibur. That is why I am your king.
Dennis: Listen. Strange women lying in ponds distributing swords is no basis for a system of government. Supreme executive power derives from a mandate from the masses, not from some farcical aquatic ceremony.

There are only two seasons in Florida - Hades and Snowbird, where the population goes from tumbleweed to Times Square in New Year's Eve.
