They finished building the new house across the street. It was funny watching them put down the sod, one minute the yard was all brown dirt and 30 minutes later it was covered in green grass. The next day they put in the driveway just before it snowed.

This year the oak trees hung onto their leaves longer than any previous year. Scott gave 2 hours of his time to help me clean up the yard. When it's time to get rid of leaves we don't play around. The John Deere tractor pulling the Cyclone Rake makes quick work of the leaves. Usually I bag the shredded leaves and the trash company hauls them away. This year the pickup was before the leaves fell and then we had snow and rain. The yard is leaf free but I have a huge pile of shredded leaves. I spoke to one contractor about they leaves and he said he was so busy he couldn't remove the leaves before spring.

I walked over to the tee box and asked the next foursome if I could take some pictures, they agreed. This was the first time I tried to capture a golf swing, and just to make if difficult the camera was set to single shot. Two of the pictures I captured showed the golfer just after he had struck the golf ball. Beginners luck, I think not! The picture was taken on one of the many golf courses in The Villages, Florida.

Would you believe these are bathrooms? The colors remind me of the scene in Mr. Blandings Builds his Dream House where Myrna Loy tells the painter the color to paint each room. She describes each shade of paint in detail but after she walks away the builder and painter agree she wanted, yellow, blue, green, white, etc.

There is a custom golf cart for everyone, you can have that Chevy, Ford, Cadillac, Hummer, etc. The local dealers will customize a golf cart to suit your taste and your budget. A custom golf cart can easily set you back more than $10,000 dollars (US).

When you move to The Villages Florida, they tell you many of the residents sell their second car and use a golf cart to get around. Every night you will see rows of golf carts parked at the square. These golf carts are rather plain in appearance, I'll have pictures of some custom carts in the next couple of days.
