a real stumper i guess usually by now it is solved, was in central florida

My guess is, it's not actually a 'shrub' but is an herbaceous weed. I'm guessing in the Joe Pye Weed family. And hey, maybe we all had plans for Sunday dinner lol

mid central, FL(Zone 9a)

something about it reminds me of Melianthus major which is grown in central florida but does have issues here (pests mainly). without better pictures, it's hard to tell for sure. http://davesgarden.com/guides/pf/go/57943/

oh yes. rib dinners from the smoker!
