Hi Sharon. I grew up in Miami, Florida. I attended college in upstate New York (Keuka College near Penn Yan).  I experienced the four seasons in upstate N.Y.; I loved the cold, snowy winters.  After leaving college, I came to San Francisco, CA. That move happened in 1975; I've lived here "off and on" since. I love to travel and have travelled to London, England, Tanzania, Africa, Cairo, Eygpt, India Bombay & New Dehli.  State side I've lived in Chicago, IL (Lombard suburbia).  My daughter is married and she and her husband live in London, England.  I visit London each year. Like you, I can only take Florida in very small dosages.  I love the weather but the people are challeging to get to know.  Do your 4-children live in Florida?

Hello and welcome,

 

You might try meetup. They have specific groups for seniors. Check here to see if there is a group in your area: http://www.meetup.com/topics/seniors-making-new-friends/

 

Or you could check out your local Senior Center. Ours has everything from pickleball leagues to historic reenactment groups.

Welcome, Sharon! Denese in LV.

 

Born and raised in MW (snow, ice, humidity); raised kids in Southern Cali; now LV old lady Smiley Wink

 

Being "home alone" at over 50 is not a bad thing.

 

Use your AARP perks and you'll be shocked the $ you will save.

 

You'll also be amazed the people you'll meet that aren't out to rip you off.

 

I always log into the AARP.org site before responding to any post. Then double-check any contact using the AARP profile settings (membership status and when joined) and google search for possible information.

 

Again, welcome! Email if you have any questions you think I can answer.

 

Stay safe!
