We'd visit them, they'd visit us, it was GREAT. Now, they're heading back to Chicago. Thank goodness for FACETIME and Skype....and e-mail and telephones. I'm going to miss them terribly, but now that we're retired, it's not such a difficult thing to hop on a plane or take a drive. We're used to that...after flying and driving from one coast to another to visit, a trip to Chicago is a piece of cake. You'll be saying the same thing very soon.

Welcome home!
Pooh, I hope your son and his family will be Cubs fans . Don't know if you've ever been to Chicago, but from May through October it is a very nice place to visit. Tons of things to see and do. Now December through March in Chicago can be another story...

It sounds as though you will make a perfect Villager. Lots to do here but most people here do have family elsewhere, too. My wife and I have found so many new friends here. The Villages is a truly great place to live and to be happy. Hope to meet you once you are moved into this slice of Heaven.

Is your husband also on the TOTV forum under a different name?
