Hi Kitty,

A day of play beginning in mid afternoon when Jim and I went to the golf course.  He plays each week on a golf league....I have not played for a year or two. 

It was a gorgeous and picture perfect Fall day and a relatively small course.  No one was behind us the entire time.  I think we arrived around 2:30 p.m. and finished at 5:00 p.m.  That is with a cart.

I'm rather a pathetic player but what would one expect when one doesn't golf on a regular basis.  I have cute golf shoes and a blackwatch plaid golf bag.  We took a cart!  Jim had an Eagle on the fifth hole and that was a big deal!  His first ever.

I'm a bit in shock in that you haven't talked about leaving Paradise.  Has this been a well thought out Plan for a while that you just didn't share?    Well, I am happy for you and I know that returning to your beloved CT with family will be wonderful for you!   You will miss the sunshine and warmth but you can always fly down and visit.  I hope it all goes well for you.  I see no reason why your beautiful home will not sell in a heartbeat!

Off to zzzz land now.   ((hugs))  Susan

a well thought out plan.....a sudden plan....for a couple of years it has been on my mind....when Brian's Dad was ill he and Bri's stepmom..lived in NC...we were here and their other kids live in CT.....lots of running back and forth,,,,hard for everyone....until they moved him to their home town in CT...that way they could go to the nursing home and visit frequently along with the grands...Brian and I talked about how difficult it was on the family...and would we know it was time to be close to our support system ....or would we decided when it was too late to be able to take action....on our trip down we discussed it again and decided to do it now...climate change is being recognized more...recession is possible etc....so the sign is out in front...and we are cleaning closets and keeping things tidy all the time...hope it goes fast...altho it would be nice to have the closing after the "season" is over...we will look for a house up there and hope that will happen fast too....wishful thinking maybe....we were lucky we are on the same page....and yes we will try to rent in this neighborhood for 2-3 months in the winter....know anyone that wants to buy a close to the beach house???the pictures will be on MLS listing in a few days....check it out....

Morning Kitty.  Many places for sale on Sanibel Island so I didn't see it.

Hope it closes at the end of the season like you want.  We only have one couple in our

neighborhood that go south in the Winter.  They sell Christmas Trees so they leave

couple weeks after Christmas and come back in May. 

We are looking into buying a compact backhoe loader to fix the water drainage

problems we have and some other problems.  Today the planning commission meets

back in the town where I grew up so I will call and see whats going on with my dads

farm.

Hope all is going well!

Good Morning, Friends:

Sorry I was absent so long, but we drove to Atlantic City, New Jersey to see my Sister, Ronnie and her husband on Oct. 13th and just returned Oct. 21st. We had a Pet Sitter stay at our home with our dogs. We went to the Casinos in Atlantic City, to Cape May, New Jersey, Smithville, New Jersey, Ocean View, New Jersey. to Longwood Gardens in PA, to see a Light Show. We won a little at the casinos. Ate Lunch out everyday and Frank cooked out on the grill in the evening. We went to to see the Spinners at Golden Nugget, and the JERSEY BOYS in New York. We had lots of laughs and a WONDERFUL TIME. I'm going to email Susan a few pics, if she'd be kind enough to post them!!

Dear Kitty,

That brings a smile to my face this morning.  I do remember her from the Forum ~

Jim and I were thinking of St. Pete area if we don't go to Colorado........is there a problem up there with the red tide or is that just an iffy thing.....????

Karen ~ I'm unable to SIGN ON to the forum on my cell phone.  I must somehow find my password to do so.  I downloaded the four pics on your vacation but I cannot transfer them to my laptop.  Too many pictures (8,000 plus) to import.  I need to talk to my IT son-in-law to figure all of this out.  When I am able to get onto the Forum on my cell phone, I will post.  Sorry.

A bit of a mess this week ~  Yes, I said I was going to slow down.  Did I talk to you all about slow glow yoga?   Kind of funny right now.   Class of 30 year olds and me.  I worried about getting up and down on the mat....while they went through downward dog, warrior, yada yada.  Not the right fit.

Much to do.  Leaving soon to meet a high school friend.  Jim's forgot to tell me that his daughter and family are coming in from Columbus and staying here on Saturday night.  Too late for a cleaning lady...... much to do between now and then...

And so my life goes.....  Think of you all often.  Promise to write next week.

((hugs))  Susan

Dear Kitty,

I can't imagine that your house will not sell quickly ~ such a beautiful home in Paradise.......

I do know of someone who has a home that he rents out.  It is in the historic area of St. Petersburg....we were thinking of a week or two in April....but that is so totally dependent on my cousin and trekking to Colorado.  Personally, I need a vacation...of just doing nothing...sitting by the beach and trying to chill out......

((hugs))  Susan

Sorry I have been missing in action.  I am my own worst enemy in scheduling it all.  Part of the angst has been this reunion....and many who want to gather BEFORE the snow cometh....

Susan
