Florida in December - And Memories
It's been warm everywhere, and even warmer in Florida. I grew up in Florida and do not recall a Christmas like this. We took a ride after dinner to the beach. It was 85 degrees. It was hard to distinguish the holiday decorations from the usual surroundings. It really is a different vibe and culture here. Whenever we think about maybe moving back after I retire, it seems less likely every time we visit. Since my Dad died six months ago there are a lot of reminders and memories. My mom is doing okay, but it's difficult. We always used to come home at the beginning of December. But this year was different - in a big way. The surroundings look the same, but somehow I feel different.
