Default Re: Life in the Villages--is it as great as everyione seems to say it is?

A couple of years ago my buddy and his wife announced that they were buying a house in the Villages. I couldn't believe my ears!!! What could he (they) be thinking?? I told him "man don't move down there, that place is going to make you old". His response was "Griff, it's not what you think, I can't even explain it - you have to come and see this place - it's awesome".
Well, a year ago my mother-in-law passed away and our friends invited my wife to come down to the Villages for a week to relax. After her return home, all she talked about was the villages. Now we are talking about a woman who 1. would never move to Florida, 2. never live away from the ocean, and 3. would never, never live in a retirement community. I said to my wife "is it really that nice"? She says "it's all they say it is and MORE"!!
This past new years my wife and I came to the Villages to visit our friends. WOW!! I was blown away!! I apologized to my buddy about my opinion of the Villages and my wife and I recently sign papers to buy a Court Yard Villa. Now, I can't wait to come back and enjoy the good life.
Now, my friends here at home are asking "Griff what can you be thinking"?? My answer "You've gotta see this place, I can't even describe it"!
