For the past few weeks I have been making preparations for my winter trip to Florida. While I am getting my things together, arranging to put the phone on suspended service, connecting the phone in Florida, discontinuing cable, stopping newspaper delivery here and starting it there, so on and so on -- I have been thinking about previous winters down south.

After my husband retired we decided to spend a winter in Flordia but we did not have a place to hang our hats. What to do?

We looked in the local newspaper for condo rentals. Sure enough we found a local person who had a condo for rent in an area that we were interested in. The woman showed us pictures of the place, the condo looked good, we signed the contract and off we went.

At the Kings Point retirement complex in Delray Beach, Fla., Lester Schnall surveys damage to the apartment of neighbor Jean Lombard.  Picture by Marc Serota WSJ RealEstateJournal.comWhat can I tell you? We learned that PICTURES LIE!! There were so many things wrong with the place!

One of the questions I asked before we made the commitment was, " is there a phone in the unit?" "Oh yes," she said.

When we entered the condo one of the first things I did was check for the phone. Sure, there was a jack for the phone but NO PHONE! Off to K-Mart we went to buy a phone.

There were many things that were lacking in that condo but the winter was saved. The first time we went to the pool a couple invited us to join them and introduced us to their friends. After that day, we spent many enjoyable hours with our new friends.
