Facts About Florida

from Florida, My Florida

(by Rev Dr. C. V. Waugh
to the tune of Maryland, My Maryland)

Land of my birth, bright sunkissed land,
Florida, my Florida.
Laded by the Gulf and Ocean grand,
Florida, my Florida.

Of all the States in East or West,
Unto my heart thou art the best
Here may I live, here may I rest
Florida, my Florida.

Some of these were born here, others just lived a while in the state.

The Florida State Flag
The flag has two diagonal red bars going from corner to corner on a white background. In the center is the State Seal. The Seal has a Native American Seminole woman scattering flowers, a cabbage palmetto tree, a steamboat and a bright sun on a blue background. This indicates that Florida has a lot of sunshine, flowers, palm trees, rivers and lakes. The flag was adopted in 1899.

The Good Life of Florida

Bless this house, oh Lord, we cry.
Please keep it cool in mid-July.
Bless the walls where termites dine,
While ants and roaches march in time.

Bless our yard where spiders pass
Fire ant castles in the grass.
Bless the garage, a home to please
Carpenter beetles, ticks and fleas.

Bless the love bugs, two by two,
The gnats and mosquitoes that feed on you.
Millions of creatures that fly or crawl,
In Florida, Lord, you've put them all!!

But this is home, and here we'll stay,
So thank you Lord, for insect spray
