(((Terri))) LOL Thanks! I've never been to Florida, but I've seen the Gulf from Louisiana and Mexico, and recently I saw what I always wanted to see in Florida--alligators!

Maybe we whould all come in here and compose a little poem to our very own states. Here's mine . . .

<b>Introducing Thomas to California</b>

Rows of eucalyptus
break the wind over
strawberry fields. Come

here, little boy,
sit down and watch
while I up-end this rock.

See? Rolly-pollies,
centipedes, an earthworm
for your bucket.
