Find Me in Florida Again.

Welcome to Florida during another one of balmy Winter seasons! This is the season where we enjoy balmy Florida sunsets and sunrises, depending on which side of the state you are on. Weather during December, January, Feb., and March is 40s at night, and 60s and 70s during the day. Residents steer clear of crowded Themeparks during the holidays. We have sense. Don't say we didn't warn you. This is not summertime. Ask a resident how we live here. Answers will be various yet the same. Life is different here than "up north" or "out west". Enjoy the gifts of God, we do!Forget about what you should do and just live and try not to be rigid. The sun is shining. Look up and smile. We do.

First house at 51 some thoughts on this or let’s just say I am still thinking about it.


Harry my Father in law died a year ago this week.

It has been one hell of a year.  Add this to loosing my two beloved Aunts, one of them an acting Godmommy.

Sigh….  I didn’t know it would be this hard or tough to settle in my FIRST FIRST HOUSE. 

THAT’S RIGHT,  OUR FIRST HOUSE AS A COUPLE IS MY IN LAW’S HOUSE.  WE AS MANY KNOW LIVED IN A SHODDY MOLD INFESTED APARTMENT ON THE EDGE OF THE NICE AND NOT SO NICE SECTION OF TAMPA FOR 16 YEARS.

BUT HERE’S THE KICK: the deed for this house that we moved into gets recorded this week.  So I guess you can say it is OFFICIAL. 

I have to laugh about that and the fact that even though I lost a car through the midnight truck of  repo smeepo when I WAS IN MY LATE 20S,  I HAVE MANAGED TO GET A HOUSE FREE AND CLEAR THE FIRST TIME.

It is nice not to have a bank to pay off for this big ticket item.  I am 51, but I don’t feel like it.  Remember now,  this is my first FIRST HOUSE AND NOT MY “CASA WHERE I WATCHED MY KIDS GROW UP”.  I DIDN’T GET MARRIED UNTIL I was 35 or uhh, 34 and a month to go until I was 35.

I am thankful.
