I’m Susan Taylor. I’m Bob and I’m with her.

Cleaning is out of this world and the girls are so nice so the fact that that happens every week and the dining room has done a magnificent job and it’s been hard with the virus is they’ve had to shut down and deliver meals and they’ve done that beautifully. And it’s such a nice place to meet people. We’ll be happy when they have tables of eight instead of tables of four because it is a great way to meet people. Well the other things that that we really enjoy is because of the corona virus people have to be separated, but what all of us have been doing is getting into our golf carts, driving up if somebody is sitting in front of their house, you just pull in, pull out your bottle of wine, and everybody sits there and has a movable cocktail party. So it hasn’t stopped us from getting together.
