c'est vrai que l'orange est un des symboles de la floride. je me demande si l'etat de floride ne pourrait pas sponsorise l'equipe des corsaires d'evry, car on joue en orange ;))

Overheard inside:

Customer: "Why does the sign for the Florida Citrus Center advertise that you are selling GEORGIA pecans?"

Clerk: "We want to show those Yankees that we are cosmopolitan."

I can do without the 13 foot gator thank you!

I remember seeing these places the last time I visited Florida. Oranges are very inviting but the 13 foot gator might keep me away.

Everything on the signs except the Gator looks appealing. I've been away for a few day and am trying to catch up!!

So, did you photograph the 13-foot gator?
