Swampy loves to think and learn Florida history. His library proves that.
Haywood, the hawk, has seen through Trilby’s disguise and nabbed his sticky bun. Unfortunately, thr bun is sticky and Trilby is stuck.
Considered one of the best sticky buns in Florida can be found at Knaus Berry Farm in Homestead.
Coming tomorrow: Thinking about it.
Trilby nabs a bag of chocolate mint taffy from Zeno’s Boardwalk Sweet Shop in Daytona Beach. Haywood, the hawk, is quick to remind Trilby it’s still Bird Feeding Month.
Since 1948 Zeno’s has proven its taffy is some of the best in Florida. Next time in Daytona Beach nab a bag of taffy, watch it being made and ask about the fascinating history of Mr. Zeno’s trek to Daytona Beach and the opening of the candy store!

Trilby had planned to have a morning snack of his typical gator-stack of pancakes, topped with a healthy, heaping pile of grits and topped with sausage links….until he found that Haywood, the hawk, decided he would have first dips, it being bird feeding month and all.
Happy Hippo Day! How best to celebrate Hippo day, in that herds of hippopotami are not known to roam the corridors of US 10, 75, 95 or the Tamiami Trail? Why, just celebrate Lu, the hippo, who lives at Homosassa Springs State Park. A visit to the park will find 55 year young Lu lounging comfortably about her home just waiting for visitors to come by and say “Hello!”.
Plum pudding is hard to find in Florida. A minor search has come to an empty plate. Where do you all know one can get this typical Christmas treat in our fine state?
Swampy takes in a few books of Florida history while celebrating Read in the Bathtub Day!
