This was a business trip so there were LOTS of hours. It was a proposal/interview that was to happen waaay back in July but just came up. I got to be with some good friends of mine that I have not seen in a while...Phil Waller, Susan Chanen, Greg Tate, Jim Harris and Bob Parent.
We used a 55" Vizio TV for the interview so, on Sunday when I worked, this is what my workspace looked like.
|You can really see details at this size.|
|So many of the golf carts have been customized....up to $20K for some of these.|
|Just one of the many shopping centers.|
|They have parties nightly.|
|The Villages is loaded with lakes, natural and man made...also over 30 golf courses.|
|On the way back to Tampa we took the back roads to see what the countryside was like.|
We heard about this Christmas Store in Clearwater....supposed to be one of the largest in the country...over 100 decorated trees so we went over to see it. On the way over the bridge I had to get near the water (of course).
|The entrance is not much to look at but the insides.....!|
|They had a number of small villages set up with LOTS of miniature items.|
|They had some terrific life-size animals. Kim fell in love with this goose.|
Here's a 1:37 minute video of the inside of the store. It moves a bit fast but the ending is worth it.
Merry Christmas to you all !
