Anyone Living in Florida?

I thought I'd jump in here and see if anyone lives close me or even in Florida somewhere?
I live in Ocala, now. We have lived in several cities in Florida. We have been here over 55 years. We just love it. We were from Pennsylvania. We love both states. But Florida seems to be best for us. I say us ..I am alone now , but my children are in Florida and I would not want to move from here.:-)
Gosh! I hope there are lots of you living near me?
God Bless!

I have not met the Shillingtons. Do they write on this forum? How did you meet them?

They moved there last year. I met them through Senionet computer courses at The University of South Fl. They do not post here.

This is a small world! But, so far no one living in Florida has jumped in here on this Forum. Maybe on another forum?
Thanks Mona, I just might look up the seniornet forums.
God Bless!

Carol,
I an so glad you wrote and added yourself to the Flotida group.
This forum is real slow at people writing.
I hope we can get it going more. We will have to tell people on the other forums about us all wanting to get together<:-))
Maybe we can get together once a year to meet somewhere if we get enough of us interested?

Hi Betty,
I am new to this forum. I found it from the kitchen forum. I currently live in Virginia, but am moving to Florida. I think I will really enjoy the weather. They just started on the house the beginning of this month. We will be living in Clermont.

Laura,
You will love Florida no matter what area. I now live in Ocala and like it very much. My husband passed away and I needed to be near friends and relatives.
Happy for you!
God Bless!

Hi Betty,
Thanks for writing back. I am sorry to hear about your husband. I'm glad you live near good support people now. I don't know much about the surrounding areas yet. How far away is Ocala from Clermont? Have a great day. Laura

I live and work (in real estate) in Citrus County Florida and love to go to the Villages for dinner. We enjoy the outside music festivities for a while afterwards. It looks like a fun place!

MzMint,
Nice of you to join us. So far not many live in Florida. Yes, the Villages is a great place to visit or live.

My children live in Pa, where I live now, but we've been seriously considering moving to florida this past year....my aunt lives near Orlando, and has for 24 years, and we might go visit her this summer sometime to see if we even like it a little!

Hi, Betty:

I posted something on the Retirement forum about active adult communities just today! Small world!

Anyway, next year my DH & I will be building at The Plantation, just down the road from you in The Villages. We looked at The Villages, but found it to be too big for us. Well, actually, I LOVED the place, but my DH wasn't quite as smitten.

I have an internet "penpal" who will be building in the Villages this summer.

Anyway, we are SO loooking forward to living in Florida. We live in Boston now, and the weather has been miserable!
