    Hello Fellow Gators (and especially, Native Floridians!)
    After being purchased from Spain in 1819, Florida was granted Statehood in 1845.
    Soooo....grab your favorite Gator, hop on and ride over to your favorite Publix!
    Get a warm pressed Cuban Sandwich and a quart of some fresh-squeezed orange juice!

    I have posted this before. But Florida has a crazy history few seem to know. . It was an escape route for slaves when the Spanish had it. As a colony (2 colonies, east and west Florida) it didn’t secede with the others and stayed loyal to GB (so did Nova Scoria by the way). Then it was on an international border with Georgia for 40 years or so.
    And it won’t be til like 2150 before it will have been part of the US longer than it was part of Spain.

    so it’s always been its own strange universe, some things never change.
