Getting High with Fridge Magnets

A package of fridge magnets came in the mail on Thursday. I quickly opened the package and the contents blew my mind!

First there was this one from the state of Florida: 

Reminds me of SpongeBob SquarePants :-)



I was curious why these 2 had the word Margaritaville on it:


This magnet is one of my all-time favourite. It's big and shaped like a bottlecap cover. But can someone please tell me what's the purpose of the rectangular and round hole at the back? 



So I did a Google search and discovered that Margaritaville is the name of a song written by Jimmy Buffett about a drink. The song was released in 1977 and became a hit.

Isn't it amazing what you can learn from fridge magnets!

When Florida is mentioned, another name comes to mind - Universal Studios!

I like the white glow that illuminates the logo.



It's all about movie making!



And if you want to make the recipient of these fridge magnets feel like a princess, get her this:

I feel oh so special already!



In the package was also this magnet about the The Mighty Eighth:

The Mighty Eighth Air Force is one of the greatest air armada in history and you can read about its history here. I'll make it a point to visit this museum if I ever go to Georgia.



Thank you Art for these lovely magnets and especially for a quick lesson in Margaritaville and The Mighty Eighth!

Nice! I'm actually so inspired that I am going to start collecting fridge magnets myself!

Are there any that include the Kennedy Space Center in Florida?

Hi Juphelia,

Yes please do start a collection too so that we can both become fridge magnet junkies, lol.

I hope Art's reading this so that he'll get me one from Kennedy Space Centre when he's in Florida next, hehehe.
