Hi Laura,
Let me be the first to say...
Welcome to Florida.
Life is good here, don't be nervous.
Maybe I missed it, but where are you locating?

Carole, I am locating in Lakeland. Mostly because I lived there briefly in the 60's. I liked the area a lot then. I am sure it has grown a lot since those days. I will enjoy getting to know the community again.

You'll be surprised with all the changes. I'm living here, only enough to claim Homestead Exemption, after being away for 25 years. I still can't find my way around......everything has either changed or moved....lol.

Laura;

Lakeland has changed a lot since you've been gone, but in a lot of ways, for the better. I have no doubt that you'll love your new life here, and once again, if the lovely Mrs. Jones (Vita) or I can do anything to help you,,,,make the transition any easier, just give us a ring, or an email. We look forward to having you and Lilly here in our community.

Ken

Laura: Congrats! I applaud you for taking the leap. I think you will be very happy! We have dear friends who just made this same decision. They will be leaving in a couple of weeks for their new life in FL as well.

Laura, you're making a big leap, and I wish you nothing but success in your new life! Let us know when you're settled in, and just think, you will now be able to make it to all of Ray's Florida CM Dinners!

Welcome, Welcome.
Let me know how Lily does on the trip. I just got new carriers for my 2 today. Honeybelle is already sleeping in hers. They actually can be buckled onto the seats (great idea)

Hi
Let me add my welcome to you upon arriving in our state. Trevor and I are about 2 hours from Lakeland--but as rollerdonna said, we'll be able to meet at the Central Florida get-togethers.

My parents will be arriving back in Florida, FOR GOOD, around July 10 after selling their northern home overnight upon their return up there around May 14. They have a home in Englewood FL--north of Ft. Myers--and will be near Sue. So once they are here Sue and I will have no excuse for not seeing each other now---I will be going over there more often.

Another significant day about today is that it their 52nd wedding anniversary -----and I forgot!!! I called them today, "just because" and nothing was mentioned until my step-dad yelled in the background while I was talking with Mom--"Happy Anniversary". Whoops!!!! So, I sang the song to them (as they did when they forgot ours on May 26th--).

Once again, Welcome, and we're sure we'll be seeing you!
Lynne
