    Lightbulb lightman is moving to Florida!!!

    Yep! old Russ is heading south to the sunshine state. Got a promotion to general foreman over the Orlando and surrounding areas. So if any Fla Polkies have any advice on suitable areas outside of Mickeyville to live, please speak up (disneyjoe- Steve?) Maybe something close to the Atlantic coast. I'll keep y'all posted. Thank you North Carolina, You've been a great state to me.

    And with this announcement, the collective IQ in the state of Florida just fell at least 50 points because all the smart ones are packing their bags and getting out before Russ has a chance to burn the place to the ground.

    Congrats on your new position! I would have a hard time leaving NC for FL, but that's just me. I'm much more of a mountain person.

    Congrats man, the problem as I see it is Mickey Mouse land is dead center so the commute to either coast may be a hassle for ya. However, if I had to move to Florida I wouldn't settle for anything less than being by an ocean.

    I'll be joining you next year. We are Tampa bound when my son graduates from high school.
    Good music, a good source, and good power can make SDA's sing. Tubes make them dance.

    Good timing too Russ, hurricane season is around the corner....should keep you busy if one decides to track over the middle of the state. Good luck to you on the new job and new digs. Beware of the gators man, they have an affection for utility workers.

    Well, look out if you are on the highway! Russ just left my house, rollin' down 77. If you see a white Ford F-150 and a rather bad looking fella driving, be sure to wave your middle finger as it passes by.

    Getting too "cold" in NC for ya, Russ? Congrats.

    What I'd look into is which coast gets the most hurricane activity before I decided on Atlantic vs. Gulf coast? I suspect the Atlantic gets slammed more? But the natives should know!

    Lightman1 in Florida, close to Orlando, Disney World won't be the SAME anymore! Poor KIDS, having to watch out for this deranged guy always popping out from behind the bushes? lol

    Have fun!

    I mean, Disney has been good to me over the years, maybe a heads up is in order.
