We have a Jasmine and put in a large solar tube above the kitchen sink which also lights up the dining room area. Solar tubes actually put out quite a lot of light. We also put a small one in the guest bath, what a difference. We used The Solar Guys and were very happy with their work.

We have lived in a Patio Villa for the past seven years,and now I find we are stigmatized and looked down on,Wow live and learn.I didn't realize that The Villages had developed into an elitest society,what a shame.

My wife and I stayed in a Patio Villa last month in our preview visit. Wow, they were really nice. It was two bedrooms, both large. The two baths were really nice. I did not feel that anyone was looking down at me, while staying there, and I had the added stigma of being "JUST A RENTER" so it could have been really bad. You know on the golf course or at the pool no one knows where you live, all they know is you and how nice you can or cannot be.

We are hoping that at our age we can get beyond this trivial stuff of where you live and how much you spent. Life is short and for many of us shorten than we wish. There are so many more important things. I know I have always concerned my self with the person and if I like them, not how much money they have.

Let's all live and enjoy each other's company.

Ok Kar Guy, Bama, Karen, Donna, Nancy, and all others...

When the Appraiser left I asked him how things went and he either gave me the :bigthumbsup:, or he was picking his noise!!!!!!! The buyer was with me when he said that there were no problems so I'm taking that to the bank. I really hope I'm not disappointed because I packed over 20 boxes today just on this :bigthumbsup:!!!

We will know for sure by Thursday but I'm still saying my Novenas!!!!

Bama------ You are the party!!!!! Can't have one without you!!!!!!!

Good Luck to you Darby...no matter what you decide on when you arrive here all that matters is that you will be living in The Villages. You have arrived in heaven!!
When you drive by Amelia on Odell Circle, just give a wave.

Fabulous news Darby .. I know how badly you want this. You will have so much fun picking out your new home in TV. We'll be arriving in late October, perhaps we can go to the dog run at the same time. Looking forward to seeing you then.

You know what guys.... I have met just the best people anywhere..... you guys. I don't want to leave anyone out on my "I love all of you" tour, but barefoot and noleguy.....Your on the top of my list of people to invite when we party.

Of course I'm taking a big chance if I invite all of you to my party...You could all be green little toads who have nothing better to do than to either land in cement or come up in the am in Jan's toilet......Oh heck....I think I'll take my chances :joke: :joke: :joke:

I have a Courtyard Villa and I love it - complete privacy and a large high walled-in backyard. I only close my shades on the one window that faces the street.
I don't think I would like to be looking into other houses on all sides. However, there are some downsides. You never know what is going on on the street side so it is not as easy to meet your neighbors as in other areas. The privacy for me is worth it.

Thanks for your stories!!! They really help. Only thing to do now is get down there and visit the Villas. We did go into one the first time we were there. An older courtyard one by Spanish Springs that we were not impressed with! This maybe very different...We'll see...Thank you all!!!
