Living in Florida

Tuesday, January 8th, 2008 at 08:04 ET

Don’t get me wrong, there are plenty of things that I’d change about Florida — the schools could use some work and they won’t let the gays adopt kids. Yet most days I just love living here. I love the weather; some people complain when it gets too hot or too humid, but they’re crazy. I’ll take hot and humid to cold (anything below 65 seems cold anymore) any day. I also love the skies and sunsets. Plus, in my new house I’ve gotten a lot closer to the wildlife. The wild turkeys in our neighborhood are OK. More spectacularly, I’ve seen a few deer within a few hundred yards of my house and they were spectacular. Then, yesterday, I made friends with four Sandhill Cranes.

I just never expect to go out my front door and see such big wild animals in my yard. I grew up in a rather natural part of Lancaster County, Pennsylvania, but we never had anything bigger than a squirrel or an occasional pheasant. These birds were absolutely magnificent and they were only a few feet away from me. I love living in Florida.
