Dogs riding in golf carts:  What was once an unusual sight to me now brings a smile to my face.

Our Neighbors to the North

As I was driving down I-95 the other day, I noticed that quite a few license plates were from Quebec.  I couldn’t believe it was already that time again when the French-Canadians make the annual pilgrimage to South Florida for their snowbird season.   Mile after mile, there they were, cars and RVs packed with suitcases – even […]
