ONLY IN FLORIDA - PART TWO
Going to a beauty shop up North and going to one in Florida is a totally different experience. The shops here are large, noisy and always have lots of ladies getting their hair and nails done. It's a weekly ritual for them.

It was time for my monthly cut and color so off I went to what they call down here, "the beauty salon."

While I was waiting to be taken I started a conversation with another lady-in-waiting. The more we talked the more interesting the conversation became. Come to find out this lady lives in the same development as a friend of mine. (I only know one person who lives there) I asked - "Do you know Annette?" She not only knows my friend but gets together with her on many occasions! Wow!

This bubbly 85 year old lady became a widow four years ago and was not looking for a relationship with a member of the opposite sex.

One day while she was in the gym a gentleman who lives in her development started a conversation with her and asked her out to dinner!

Well, she didn't give it a second thought and said "YES."

I enjoyed hearing her tell me about her reaction to the dinner invitation. She surprised herself by her immediate, "yes." She's been going with him for a year now, and sees him on her terms and if she doesn't like something about him, she lets him know. She says, "At my age I say whatever I feel like."

Before I knew it, It was time for me to get my hair done.

Now, this is not the end of my day.

Once I left the beauty salon I went to the nearby Carnival Flea Market. As I was strolling down an aisle I saw someone that looked familiar but you know what, there are a lot of people down here that look like someone I know!

This time it was someone who is a neighbor of mine up North, she's visiting her daughter who lives down here.

Like I say, "only in Florida!"

Sounds like you're having a blast!!!
 
I love coincidences like that. We once ran into neighbors in Nassau, and neither of us knew the other was going to be there.
 
It's a small world after all. Like Kenju, my husband and I ran into the mayor of our town and his wife in Oahu. Again, like Kenju, neither one of us knew the others were going there.

You can make some new friends by being friendly and I know that describes you to a Tee. Good for you in reaching out.
 
Sounds like your second home really is a home! I have given up dying my hair...mostly did it myself...so we will see.
 
Happy Birthday Steve's Mom!!!

While at a gas station in Houston Tx my husband went into the store and met his best friend from high school! Last they had seen each other was in Fayetteville NC When he returned to the car he said honey you will never guess who I met inside! They happened to be living only 4 blocks from our home in Houston.
