I love living in a community where my friends appreciate my sense of humor: 10,000 Swedes came thru the weeds chased by one Norwegian. The dust from the weeds and sweat from the Swedes made snuff for the one Norwegian.
I enjoy riding the bus to and from medical appointments. I don't have to think about where to go or park my car. And I love the drivers, they are so patient and kind.
I am so happy that I am living at Fellowship Square. The food is wonderful and I can play bridge whenever I want.
