Tips For Northerner Moving South

** Save all manner of bacon grease. You will be instructed

that WE can. Stay home the two days of the year it snows.

** But if you DO run your car in a ditch (because you're a
smart-ass who thought you COULD drive on snow & ice) don't
panic. Four men in a the cab of a 4 wheel drive with a 12 pack
of beer and a tow chain will be along directly. Don't try to help
them and for God's sake, stay out of their way. This is what

or not -- it's just something you're supposed to do.

** Florida is NOT a Southern state. There's more damned
Yankees there than true Southerners.

** You can ask us for directions, but unless you're pretty
familiar with the positions of key rocks, trees, hills, and
where Uncle Ned smashed his pick-em'up truck back in
'79, you're probably better off trying to get there your-own-
