Small world!

John's random golfing partner sold house in 2000 that Paula bought in 2015

I played golf today on the Silver Lake course in The Villages, Florida where Paula and I are spending four months in the home she purchased in March. I was assigned randomly to a foursome.

John Olesky with Dick Reed
Dick Reed of Lansing, Michigan, who lives on Kelsea Circle in The Villages, also was in the group. We got to talking about where we lived up north and in The Villages and I gave him the address of Paula’s Florida home.

Well, the house that Paula bought in March is the one that Dick bought in 1997 and sold in 2000 to the late couple whose children sold it to Paula.

Dick had the cheapest carpeting he could find put down in the home in 2000 “so I could sell the house.”

The first thing Paula did was replace the cheap 15-year-old carpeting with laminated wood.

It made a tremendous improvement.

So it was a small world on this day in The Villages, where there are more than 300 activities listed on its web site EVERY day.
