Town Square - Brownwood


The new "hometown" of The Villages, Brownwood, is coming along nicely with a lot of new construction. We will be visiting it again in the near future and bring you a series of updated photos.

A news article yesterday stated that The Villages is the fastest-growing municipal area in the United States.

Just what we need!  Yikes.

Ay! Jalisco




Ay! Jalisco is a very fine Mexican restaurant in the Spanish Springs downtown.  It features a full menu and a full bar with a warm atmosphere, friendly wait staff and good food!

Up The Creek - RIP


Up the Creek no longer exists in Lake Sumter Lander, much to our dismay. The building now houses a Cody's Roadhouse and it just isn't the same. Diners may still enjoy a nice view of the water, though.

Rest area in the Brownwood theater


The "new" hometown of Brownwood has a beautiful and large theater. The lobby itself could seat half of New York. Recognizing the fact that lots of us old folks go to movies in The Villages, the theater was built to accommodate our needs. One way it does that is by providing little corners with tables and comfy chairs and artifacts from our childhood (1880s). This is one of those little corners.

Entry to throughway


This is where you enter to walk through the throughway which leads to a nice fountain, other stores and a parking lot in Spanish Springs.  On the right is an ice cream/fudge shop.  It's fun to indulge in such things and partake of them at one of these tables.  Or so we've been told.

Canadian Escapee(s)


The golf cart on the right obviously belongs to some poor soul(s) who escaped the frigid northland. I am not positive, but I'd guess he/she/they are from Ontario. He/she/they arrived about the same time as did many flocks of Canadian geese, also, according to their passports, from Ontario.

But the major reason I'm guessing that cart belongs to Ontario folks is found in the meaning of the word, "ontology," which is obviously related to Ontario.  "Ont" = "Ont."  What could be clearer than that? 

Ontology has to do with the study of the meaning of being.  Ontarions in The Villages know very well that the meaning of their being means to head to Florida for the winter.  Simple, right?
