The heat and humidity are both out in full force and the love bugs are mating. All of that means that we’ve finally reached Florida’s version of summer. You will get lots of chances to enjoy it; it’s going to be around for about six more months! As you read last week, my friends from Arkansas came to visit. I gave them a tour of Tampa and we stopped at Hamburger Mary’s, Bradley’s on 7th, and City Side, among others. They had a lot of fun! I hope I’ll see them very soon. And if I see you soon, smile and say cheese for Hotspots! Lots of love!
