Urgent Care Cares - Day 20 - Seeking The Wizard In The Land of Oz

"Come along, Dorothy. You don't want any of *those* apples" -- Scarecrow

Dear Diary,

I awakened as if by Flying Monkeys attacking my throat with razors. I had no voice and felt feverish causing this merry widow to locate Oz--aka, Dr. George Schroeder.

Here are a few photos of today's journey through The Villages.

I hope you enjoy viewing them as much as I enjoyed taking them.

Until this time next time.

See you in print,

These two charming dogs were sitting waiting patiently in the back of a golf cart outside StarBucks this morning. They are precious!

Here's the StarBucks gang. Note the woman in red sweater in wheel chair on your right. Her name is Joann, age 85. Joann is married to Roy, age 88. Roy hiding behind the gentleman in dark baseball cap to your left. Roy and Joann are married 67 years and live in The Villages six years. Roy is a former window washer at The Empire State Building.

This is where I went to the doctor today.
Here's one of those cute golf carts with "Gators" license plate. Note the alligator head on the roof.

This was parked the doctor's office. Imagine.

Putt-Putt, my small electric golf cart the color of snow.
A gift of fresh picked oranges from Alex of the StarBucks gang. Thank you,  Alex, wherever you are!

Never a dull moment in The Villages, on my way to fill my prescriptions I stopped to snap this photo.

Meet newlyweds, MJ and Robert Fross. That's them in the bucket in the preceding photo celebrating groundbreaking ceremony at their new office site. Fross & Fross, wealth management company is set to be completed May 1, 2012. Best wishes, Mr. & Mrs. Fross on your nuptials and your business venture.

Meet Anne of The Village of Rio Ponderosa. A Villager since January 1995, Anne, originally from Winslow Township, NJ, says "I like living here!"
Prescriptions filled and Putt-Putt parked, this writer made an early day of it. 
Say goodnight Linda. Goodnight Linda.

Writing Quote:

"Who is more to be pitied, a writer bound and gagged by policemen or one living in perfect freedom who has nothing to say?"--Kurt Vonnegut, Jr.

Writing Tip:

Write for your niche market, but remember, sometimes you may receive criticism. So long as your intentions are good and kind and honest, don't let it deter you. All it means is that reader or readers, is not part of your niche audience. As Martha Stewart says that's a good thing. How else will you know?
