My husband and I were both born in Columbus, Ohio, he in Bexley, (Christ the King Parish) and me in the south end, (St. Leo's Parish). We have lived the last 30 years in a suburb of Cincinnati called West Chester.

I was brought up in Plainfield, Connecticut but lived in Enfield, CT before moving to The Villages. So I'm very familiar with Lebanon, Norwich, Preston and the casinos as previously posted.

Many years ago I was a toll collector on the Mohegan Pequot Bridge when it was a 15 cent toll. That bridge now leads into the Mohegan Sun Casino.

Love The Villages now.

I thought all the Mohegans died out with Chingachuk, but I guess his cousin Cha Ching is still around.

Hi, we are from one hour north of Anchorage , Alaska. We were just in Florida for a 3 week and toured The Villages....loved it. We were told about it by a few people at Disneyworld. So, we went up checked it out. Now we know where we want to retire in the next year! Kind Regards, Terran (terpaq)

We are from the great Midwest! State of Illinois -the Land of Lincoln. Bloomington-Normal is our summer home. This is the home office of State Farm Insurance. Have spent the last 8 years in Palm Springs in the winter. Usually 3 mo. at a time. Beautiful area with the mountains and sun. Moved to the Villages a year ago for 6 mo. a year and just love it. Who needs mountains as we do not have time to look at them!

Lou, that is the sweetest and most sincere comment I have seen on TOTV in a long, long time. "Honey" is very lucky.

Lou and Carla, I went to Freedom and Asbury Park High Schools. Worked on the boardwalk during the summer and cruised the circle when I could. Have some really great memories of Monmouth County.

Hi Mr. and Mrs. Sailor,

Sorry you will not be able to join us at Crispers this month.

Once a month TOTVer's meet at a restaurant called Crispers. It is in the shopping center on Rt. 466 near Publix. We meet at 3 pm on the third Friday of each month.

We meet at 3 pm because the lunch time crowd has left already and we have the place primarily to ourselves.

If you need more info please do not hesitate to email me. When you can make it to Crispers please let me know, so we can all welcome you.

Once again Congratulations and to TV.

From one of your 65,000 new neighbors.

Hyacinth Bucket
