You know. You are a VERY likable person, Polar Bear. Is your brother the Golden Bear? He is from Columbus, Ohio just like us. However, I do NOT play golf like him.

What amazes me is folks golfing in the middle of the day when it's the hottest!! Hoping they're taking along some water as one needs to remain hydrated!!

We've found that it's not so bad living here full-time. BEATS having to shovel drives and sidewalks AND driving in the ice and snow as well. PLUS having to deal with the cold! Brrrrrrrrr!!!!
I would gladly trade the snow and ice of a Chicago winter for the summers in TV! And for the winter just ended Chicago actually had about 5 inches of snow less than the average winter. Oh to be a frog . . .

The summers are the best part of living here. Only half of the population is here and you can do anything you want without having to stand in line

It is only 6 months of oppressive heat & humidity, mosquitos the size of Hummingbirds and cockroaches big enough to saddle the keeps The Sunshine State from being as populated as California. ;-)

Knowing you are joking - but the heat and humidity are far less than what we had in Washingon DC; I have seen NO mosquitoes in the 3 years I have been in The Villages; and the roaches are non-existent as well if you use a pest management company.

Wow, those summers in Washington DC were miserable. Car exhaust fumes, inversion layer keeping that bad air trapped and percolating, the heat building up in the concrete canyons, and TRAFFIC. So happy to be in The Villages!!!
