"Where is Lady Lake?", I asked myself.

Yesterday evening my sitemeter showed a visit from someone in Lady Lake, Florida. Since I spent much of my childhood and youth in the Sunshine State, I'm pretty familiar with the geography. Still, because of the tremendous amount of development that has happened there since I left at the end of the 1960s, I will often see the name of a place that is unfamiliar. So it was with Lady Lake.

Then I checked this morning's news, and learned that Lady Lake is a community in Lake County, roughly west of Daytona Beach.

Whoever you are, my reader in Lady Lake, I hope you're well and your house is still standing.


  1. i can't be sure, but your lady lake reader might be me. my isp must be spoofing router addresses or something because i usually show up on my own sitemeter as being from one of three or four central florida towns, lady lake among them [including on feb 1st].

  2. OK, now I know. For a while, I thought you had a boyfriend in Ocala.

  3. ocala is horse country ....

  4. I'm tempted to quote part of Molly Bloom's soliloquy, but I'll resist.

  5. your mom is a smart woman [without her input i wouldn't have cared about the super bowl at all] and there will always and only be one molly for me [i'm going to miss her terribly].
