Default Apologies - 1st Weekend

My apologies to everyone who was driving between Lake Sumter and Brownwood this weekend. I arrived in TV on Friday afternoon. Please tell me I’ll be able to figure out where I am and how to get through the roundabouts without hurting someone! I made turns without a signal, went straight with a signal, and still can’t get to Publix without having to do a U Turn! Be patient with newbies - they are like 4 year olds getting used to preschool. But, loving my rental in Amelia and ready to buy once my pending sale gets final!

Roundabouts are easy if you remember the rules. To turn right, stay in the right lane. To go straight you can use either the left or right lane. To go left you must use the left lane. Never change lanes in the middle of a roundabout. use your right turn signal when exiting a roundabout. You should never use your left signal in a roundabout. if you don't try to go right from the left lane or left from the right lane, you'll be fine. Enjoy The Villages.

You can turn right from left lane, legally, but say your prayers first.

Quit bragging. I still have 3 years, 10 months and 26 days before I have to start apologizing for things. I am so jealous. I get my daily jolt by pulling up the weather reports in the villages just to read them.

OK, I have to admit during a lifestyle visit, I ended up on Stillwater drive in a golf cart, I think all the newbies get at least one OOPs, welcome to TV.
