  1. What we need here in Apopka is a Buc-ees gas station with 120 gas pumps so that we won’t have to fight with everybody in town to fuel up before the hurricanes in our vehicles……maybe, just maybe, with 120 gas pumps, there would not be long lines at each pump, but I don’t know?!?!?

  2. Back when my Mama was living I worried about her all the time for one reason or another. I bought her a weather radio so that she would know when a tornado or bad thunder storm was approaching. I told her to just keep it turned on and an alert would sound off, and she could listen, and know when bad weather was approaching. After about 2 days she told me to cut that dang thing off, or unplug it, or better yet, take it to your house, because it is making me a nervous wreck! LOL……
