I don't know why it doesn't show but the post titled "hello" is from me. I'm using the screen name "Littlelocomotive". For what it matters, I'm 55 years old, grandmother of 3. I live in FL, they live in MN so I don't get to do "active" grandmothering! We moved to FL 8 years ago, primarily for my health but we both had dreamed of retiring here and a whole lot of things went the right way to enable us to make the move. I initially hurt my back in 1999 and, while undergoing physical therapy, fell and broke my ankle and, while on crutches after ankle surgery, I was rear-ended at a stoplight. By a small bus. And I was driving a small car. Things went down hill from there! I try to laugh as I write this because the randomness of the universe is truly beyond my comprehension and it seems better to laugh than dwell on the downside.. Anyway, I'm not an anonymous infiltrator. And I really do look forward to hearing from you.View Thread
