    A couple from Oklahoma were tired of the cold winter weather and decided to take a weekend vacation in Florida. Because they both worked, they found it difficult to arrange transportation together so the husband left a day earlier.

    After he arrived in Florida he wrote an e-mail to his wife. However, he was a letter off on the address and instead it was sent to an elderly lady in Houston whose husband had died the day before. The lady from Houston fainted while reading the e-mail. Her son who saw her faint went to her aid and observed what was written on the computer monitor where the e-mail message was still open.

    The message read:

    From your loving husband.

    The trip here was fast and without incident.

    I anxiously await your scheduled arrival tomorrow.



    BTW, it sure is hot down here.
    It's not how old you are, it's how you got here.
    It's been a long road and not all of it was paved.
    . If you ain't havin' fun, it's your own damn fault

    What donít they tell you about Florida? Here are a few of the things.

    There is a law in Florida that as soon as you cross the border into the state you must disconnect your turn signals.

    When in the left turn lane waiting for your green arrow, it is allowable to read/answer all of your text and email messages, even if this means you and the dozen people behind you miss the signal and have to sit through the cycle again.

    The left lane of interstates is dedicated for people that want to drive 10Ė15 MPH under the speed limit.

    Pedestrians and bicyclists have no right of way. You do not have to stop for the pedestrian crosswalks. It is ok to drive in the bicycle only lanes even if there are cyclists in them.

    It is illegal to merge in traffic even if there is a dedicated merge lane. Make sure you stop and wait to be sure there is no traffic coming within a mile before getting into the dedicated merge lane.

    When turning left and a motorcycle is approaching, it is their responsibility to stop to avoid an accident.
