Technically this should cause a Colorado thread, but it seems to fit Florida so well.

Didn't Conan Doyle write a Sherlock Homes story with this plot?  IIRC, he had the suicide weapon fall from a bridge into the water.

Also now a really great way to commit murder and blame it on suicide with a weather balloon.  #:-)

Brevard County doesn't count as part of Florida. We've tried to give them to Cuba and the Bahamas but nobody will take them. Now you know why.  :idiot2:   Just for the record, turtles can be trained to serve cold drinks on their backs and spy on your neighbors for you but cannot be trained to attack anyone. At least not quickly enough to catch-up to them. Carry on.

How are 'turtle spies" trained?  How do turtle spies evade our canine guardians?  My canine guardians "search and annoy" turtles every time they can get their paws around one.  The turtle spy goes into "shutdown mode" which prevents spying, but causes great annoyance to my canine guards.

The properly equipped ones have little cameras in their butts. Dogs never think to check there.  ::)

No where real close, about 100 miles north of Miami and over by the west coast. Arcadia is the town, in Desoto County. Miami Airport is a bear BTW, hope one of you speaks Spanish fluently. The Keys are great. Great place to vacation.  O0

I’ve just been notified that we are flying in to Ft. Lauderdale, not Miami.

Probably because we don’t speak Spanish.

I never go anywhere without my thong. I don’t remember who it belonged to, originally.

Almost there. Plane is packed with little kids under 5, but I have to say...they are all the most well behaved kids I have ever seen. I lucked out this time.

Their parents are so strict too, all of them. Didn’t think people like this still existed.
