A FINAL EVENING ON LAKE JUNEBUG

Gentle Readers . .  and Maxwell,

Many of you have written posts about the arrival of autumn. It's still warm here in Northern Florida, but it's pleasant. The humidity is tolerable. While the weather is nice, I recommend you take one last vacation for the year. You need an evening on Lake Junebug.

My prices are low (however much I owe the IRS so about $4,000 and that can be a group rate if you want to bring some pals or the whole family). It's rained a great deal lately so the lake is full. Notice the trees reflected in the beautiful clear water:


Architecture buffs will enjoy attractions such as the steps that lead down to the lake:



Look at the beautiful vegetation right next to the lake:



You'll feel as if you're visiting the Galapagos.Wildlife surrounds Lake Junebug:



Monsieur Malinois, I presume? You meet the elite when you vacation on Lake Junebug:


The dining area, where our chef prepares gourmet meals on the grill:


Another lovely view of the deluxe amenities:



The fence guarantees privacy should you want to indulge in a little skinny dipping:



I haven't set up the hammock yet, but it's a hammock for two. Romance guaranteed. If you bring the kids, they can sleep on the deck itself. They'll be thrilled by this outdoor adventure.

Be sure to book your trip soon. If you wait too long, the party will be over.


Infinities of love,

Janie Junebug, proprietor

  1. Hmmm, it's nice and all, but if I don't have kids, will kids be provided for me? Or will I have to purchase my own?

    1. Some of the neighbors have children. I suspect you can get loaners.

  2. Who could pass up a vacation spot like that?

    1. Thank you. I'm aware of your Insecure Writers Group, but I'm much too insecure to join.

  5. I'm game. I'll book the ticket now and be there sometime tonight. Don't want to risk the lake drying up with all that global warming stuff!

  6. Are there gators in your lake? That won't stop me from coming but it would be good to know.

    1. We're too far north for gators, but I'll look into renting one.

  7. Do you provide saddles for the mosquito rides?

    1. But of course. What an absurd question.

  8. Just a tad to far for me to come for just a weekend, otherwise I’d be tempted. I like the wildlife.

  9. I just learned of your blog through Mama Diaries. I'm so glad I did! It's great to meet you and your blog looks fun, looking forward to following. :)

  10. You have issued a very enticing offer, though I find I have filled my calendar! Shucks! xo Nellie

  11. Well, well, well...do we need to pack our own canoe?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Good question. I've been told that prior to the drainage improvements in our neighborhood that people who live one street over often paddled their canoes down the street after a heavy rain. I bet some of those folks still have those canoes and you can go door-to-door until you find one.

  12. That hammock's my thing
    'cause I love to swing, baby - YEAH!

    I was once arrested while doing
    the breast stroke on Veronica Lake.

    On another occasion
    I was found face down on Dinah Shore.
    Oh BEHAVE, baby..... (or not!)

    I'm so there, Janie Junebug! I can picture myself swimming, snorkeling, scuba diving, water skiing, sailing and canoeing on the pristine waters of beautiful Lake Junebug, listed as one America's Scenic Wonders by Reader's Indigestion.

    I love exotic wildlife and Lake Junebug has it in abundance. Harper's bizarre and I also spotted a Blue Rhino on the deck.

    My bags are packed
    I'm leavin' home
    I'm goin' where
    the buff'lo roam

    'Cause when I'm paddlin' Madelin' home,
    Gee! when I'm paddlin' Madelin' home,
    First I drift with the tide, then pull for the shore.
    I hug her and kiss her and paddle some more,
    Then I keep paddlin' Madelin' home

    1. Paddlin' Madelin' home seems to have a different meaning when you sing it. Are you into a little S&M, Shady? A spanking here or there? Please say "no."

  13. That's a lotta rain; Listen, if this is about paying your IRS bill, it's never ending; Tax on the rental income, state and local taxes, lodging tax, alligator tax. You might want to rethink this.

    1. You're right, Joanne. But it sure seemed like a good idea during the 15 minutes I spend writing the post.

  14. Reservations for the 2015 First Annual Comedy Apocalypse hosted by Cherdo, Shady and Janie. It's not the end of the world if you don't make it, but who wants to risk it? How many attendees can you handle?

    I foresee a Grillin' and Chillin' mixer as one of the events.

    1. Well, I have the deck; my bedroom, which the dogs and I inhabit; a second bedroom that has become a TV and blogging room; a sofa sleeper in the family room; and two bathrooms. Only one bathtub, but if someone will sleep in it I guess I can handle a couple hundred guests. Sounds like a plan.

  15. To hell with the Bahamas. I'm on my way!

    1. Why would anyone want to go to the Bahamas?

  16. Is that "Fishducky thinks, 'What's new?'" or "What's new?-- fishducky thinks!"???

    1. Fishducky thinks, What's new?, as in doesn't Janie cackle constantly?

  17. Paradise! That deck looks just like my . . . um . . . former deck. Maybe I'll post tomorrow.

    ReplyDelete
  18. You don't want to see my former deck, I've decided. Yours is nicer.

    ReplyDelete

    1. My deck looks like crap, but WDW and I enjoy sitting outside when the weather is nice.

  19. Looks like fun. I bet my girls would love sleeping outdoors. It is amazing to look up and see a sky filled with stars.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Yes, the stars are lovely, but no one would want to sleep on my deck. The palmetto bugs come out and prance around as soon as it gets dark.

  20. That is the most idyllic spot I've ever seen. I don't know how you've kept it a secret for all this time! But do you have canoe rentals? Or kayaks? I like to kayak.

    And also, can I feed the wildlife, or no?

    ReplyDelete
  21. Canoes should be available one street over. I'm not sure about kayaks. You can give the wildlife one biscuit per day in addition to his two meals. I appreciate you recognizing that I have my very own Elysium Fields.

  22. I didn't know you had lake front property! I will take you up on this vacation another time.

    1. It's lakefront property part of the year. It depends on the amount of rain.

      Delete
  23. Wait... is that the fence mentioned on today's post that the girls keep peering over?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. No, the fence around Lake Junebug allows one to view Hot Young Anthony when he works in his yard. Without his shirt. An excellent view.

  24. It's a bit pricey for me but I'll think about it! Still living in FL has got to be better than living in IL. Its super expensive and COLD!

    1. I did not like the way the cold wind whistled in Illinois during the winter.

  25. Love this! I need to get away...do you have wifi?
