It's a mean thing to do, but some of us here in Florida like to taunt our friends who still live up North . We make a special point to say how nice our weather is, how blue the sky is, how warm the pool is, how we are playing golf on Christmas day. This is so mean. We should be more understanding. I do know that our quality of life does seem to be better for our health down here. No slipping on the ice, no staying indoors because it is frigid outdoors. No putting a sweater on the dog and booties for their pads because of the salt on the sidewalk. Oranges off of our orange tree , fresh strawberries from Plant City, these are the things that make it so special down here. And of course, the people who have already figured this all out. They are here and we have become family.

Don't quite know how this got to me but it was on the top line of my computer (not in email) But I really enjoyed it. I truly admire you.

Everything sounds so wonderful Leona. Venice will seem boring . I would want to move to Portownsend where the kids are living. All sounds great . Is there?
