Sorry to see the somewhat negative replies to "snow birds". I call them "seasonal residents" and welcome my many friends arrivals every winter season. It creates a buzz and upbeat feeling in the activities here in the villages. You are always welcome by the majority of us and thanks for returning each an every winter season. I like seeing the hustle, bustle and increased activity at local businesses and recreation facilities. You are a big boost to our local economy and don't listen to anyone who says otherwise.

To all snowbirders or seasonal residents (I really like that term!), just be sure and join us at Crispers on the 15th at 3:00 pm. NO EXCUSES!!!!

Oh, I have another reason for appreciating snowbirds -- it means more $$ for my daughter in tips. Remember, go to Applebee's off of 441 and ask for Jessica P and be sure and tip well. (She usually has Wednesdays and Fridays off, works evenings most day.)

Red,

Applebees is one of our favorite restaraunts, good food at reasonable prices.

We will be sure to give your hard working baby girl a very generous tip! Should we ask for Jess?

There's two Jessica's, that's why you have to use the last initial (P). Just don't tell her mom sent you. roflao

A frog is someone who stays in TV full time (they are here until they croak).

As A FROG I recognize if everyone who owned a home in The Villages lived here year around it would always be as busy and congested as it is during "Snowbird Season". So part of the year we have to wait a little longer for some things. Is that so bad when you consider we're enjoying warmth and sunshine rather than enduring the cold and shoveling snow?

Chuckster - I cannot thank you enough for your positive and upbeat comments. :-* I must admit that after reading Kahuna's post and some of the comments, I was feeling pretty dejected. So nice to get some positive feedback. :bigthumbsup:

Also, thanks to Muncle for the tips -

Maybe I'm not getting it but where was Kahuna's remarks negative? He's stating a fact well known to both snowbirds and permanent residents. I didn't take his post as a complaint at all.

Most parts of FLA are congested in the winter months. I have half dozen friends who go to FLA Jan, Feb and March and when they return home, it's the first thing they say, really nice but too crowded!
