Sixty years later I am enjoying spring in The Villages, Florida. I had a great birthday. Celebrated on several days with several cakes! Right now 60 doesn't feel so bad. After all it is just a number---right?
The best birthday present I got was to spend the day with my wonderful, loving husband. I got flowers, and was taken out to dinner. All our daughters, many family and friends called with birthday wishes. The Lord blessed me with a wonderful day.

Not as roomy as the motorhome but a lot easier to park!

Today I joined them in a round of golf. Wednesday is ladies day at the golf courses and every week there is a group that golf's and then goes to lunch. I had such a fun time even though I had a lousy golf game. In this group it is more about socializing and having a good time rather than doing good golfing. Now that is my kind of group! Harry and I will be leaving here soon and we are really going to miss all the great people. Fortunately they have “adopted us” and we can return to join their fun gatherings at any time.

Last week our daughter Amy visited with us in The Villages. Amy’s birthday is November 2nd and we are always away on her birthday so this year she decided to come to visit us as a birthday present. We had a great time and she was able to see what the lifestyle is all about. She enjoyed several of the activities.
One evening we went to a dinner show with the entertainment being impersonator’s of famous singers. Very entertaining and wonderful singers.On Thursday it was a warm and sunny afternoon so we decided to take an air boat ride on the Withlacoochee River.
This is one of the three alligators we saw along the way. The guide would stop for a closer look at the many turtles, birds, and alligators and he would turn off the engine so we could hear him talk. Those airboats are sure LOUD!
We had a good time and for Harry and I it was our first time on an airboat. It was a fun week with Amy visiting and showing her around The Villages.

We got involved in several activities, pickle ball, golfing, neighborhood dinners, etc. We decided that we liked it so much that we sold the motor home and started looking to buy a villa to travel to in the winter months.
This is the last you will see of our motor home. It was a very bitter sweet parting. We have had some wonderful times, and have met such great people and made many good friends over the past 21 years that we were RVing. For now---we plan to keep our TT membership and join our friends by staying in the Getaways. We are hoping that we will not be forgotten just because we are not around as much as we were in the past. Since we sold the motor home and were not ready to return to chilly Pa, we extended our rental till the end of November.

After the swimming it was time to come inside for some cake. She just loves to make silly faces.
She really liked this card from Aunt Amy that played music. ICarly is one of her favorites.
HAPPY BIRTHDAY MACKENZIE!
