Default finally on our way

arriving in TV on Friday to become snowbirds (finally), can't wait. Especially since the weather turned cold this week in Columbus.

Going to a Browns' Backers club (Tony Packo's) Sunday to watch the game, most likely by golf cart. Will attend the occasional Buckeyes' game also at Tony Packo's (if it's a day game - think they meet at McCall's Tavern for night games), will also likely attend an Ohio Club meeting and maybe a 3C (Cleveland, Columbus, Cincinnati) meeting.

Ohio is probably in the top 5 states represented in TV (I think the top is NY or FL, and I think Pennsylvania is well-represented too). Lots of Ohioans to meet up with, and also lots from other states and countries, too. One of the neatest things (IMO, anyway) about TV is the opportunity to meet and get to know those from other places and cultures. Different cultures are not just from different countries - there's urban or suburban, small town and rural, midwest, east coast, southern, etc. All have things to enrich your life and open your mind.

Best place to find out about stuff is at the pool, floating around on your noodle (get some soon) and then probably on this site too.

You will love it!

Our neighbors moved here from Akron a few months ago. Bought a villa and love everything about The Villages.....being avid golfers and snow haters, they found the
perfect place.

We live in Ohio (May to Oct.) now but have been wintering in Bradenton, Fl. for past 7 years. This living in 2 places is getting old so this time we are not going to give up our quest to become Villagers. Our lovely condo in Brunswick is up for sale this time FSBO. The Real Estate couple didn't draw too many lookers so we will try ourselves for a while.

Talking more from Ohio

We closed on our preowned in Lynhaven last Monday and returned to Circleville, Ohio, and a FROST warning this morning. We will snowbird until we are ready to sell here.
While in the Villages, I was clipping back the knock-out roses in the front bed of the lawn and four different neighbors came over to meet me and welcome us to the neighborhood. I was sold before that, but it just added to my feeling of being in "Florida's friendliest hometown". You'll love it!

My wife and I are both from Ohio. I'm from Columbus and my wife is from Van Wert. Currently we are maintaining two homes (Massillon, Oh & Village of Duval). We are looking forward to retirement and living the villages life style.

Does it count that I lived in Cleveland for a year from 80 to 81?

I found the people from the midwest to be friendly. If you were waiting for an elevator and said good morning to someone, they answer you back politely.

I remember on Friday at 5 PM, someone telling me their was a party in the park. Since I didn't know where it was, I asked for directons and was told, "just stand on the corner at 5 PM, and follow the crowd". Ten minutes later, I was at the park partying.

TV reminds of those times when people were polite to one another.

You will meet so many great people from many parts of the country including other parts of the world.
