I owe a debt to the Morses for Church on the Square and the performers they bring there. For those who don't know, the Morses give them free housing when they perform there. Since some of the groups are large (choirs, orchestras), this is not a cheap endeavor, but the tickets are.

Most of all, I'm thankful for the wonderful people who live here. Without Harold Schwartz's dream and Gary Morse's willingness to fulfill that dream, I never would have met so many kind, generous people.
Dee, those were some of the nicest, most positive words I've read (or heard) about TV since purchasing our home here.

The next time I see you I want another hug, but this time from a nice person instead of a nice ()! The Villages Florida

At my age rolling out of bed in the morning is easy.
Getting up off the floor is another story.

Thank you for brightening up the day.

The first thing I do in the morning is thank God for the gift of another day and the accompaning prayers.

The second thing that comes to my mind is when I will be able to sell my home and move to TV. Your post helps to keep the fire burning brightly.

I could write a very long post but I'll spare everyone. Let me say though, "there is no place on earth like TV because of it's beauty and it's beautiful people".

Okay folks! Enough of the good talk of The Villages. I'm sitting here drooling and thinking of being there right now! We lowered the price on our home and hopefully it will sale so we can start building in Buttonwood.

I've given up telling people about the beauty of The Villages. Many people here in California can't comprehend why we would leave this state for a place in Florida. I'm not telling anyone anymore about The Villages. It's our secret paradise, our secret destination.

We will be there soon!

The attention to detail extends to the high school, which is like no other school that I have ever been in. The campus is like the campus of a small college. I was struck by the nicely carpeted hallways and all the inspirational pictures on the walls. What really struck me, however, was the men's room which could easily be in an upscale restaurant, with it's beautiful tile work ... and not a sign of graffiti!

The little things and attention to detail is right on the mark.

There is not a speck of litter, the roads & paths are in top notch shape. The ease of getting around is beyond measure. Hop in and out of a cart to go shopping, out to dinner, to play. It's all so pleasant and stress free. Driving along and seeing the beauty of nature all throughout TV is so very special.

Default Good folks

All the good natured and honest folks here, additionally make life something to smile about. As I returned along the cart path from North at the intersection of Old Camp Road, there was a beautiful full set of men's clubs and bag sitting on the grass verge. Apparently someone had lost them off the back of a cart, and there they were, awaiting their owner....

Thanks for putting another smile on my face. Yes, so many little things to appreciate. The beautiful landscaping and impeccable cleanliness are remarkable. It's amazing how much work it takes to keep it that way!

I love how the phone is answered: "It's a beautiful day in the Villages." Yes, it is, isn't it!

I marvel at the themed recreation centers where the smallest detail is just so. It's so cool how you can try different sports at the rec centers without having to buy the equipment. Equipment is included.

Live music on the squares every night. How charming!

Golf cart paths to everywhere!


An atmosphere that encourages and facilitates friendliness!

Thanks again Gracie. I'm reminded everyday why I love you!
