frank,
best wishes for a bright and brilliant new future in this next chapter of your life. new beginnings can be scary, but also thrilling and liberating. may you land on your feet in florida and find prosperity and fulfillment in all that you do.

i guess we won't run into each other in new york and new england very much any more, but i hope there will still be plenty of opportunities to get together (ptg national next summer?)

btw, the condo complex looks very nice.

Please tell me you have a more comfy chair other than what is pictured here!!! Maybe you just hadn't unpacked the multi-position,ergonomically correct chair from the u-haul yet, right??!!

I will personally miss your presence at our local gatherings. I value the opportunity I've had in getting to know you.

I know you will find a tremendous amount of enjoyment in your new location! (and I'm NOT talking about the weather!!) \:D

Thanks Terrytunes/Pique' and everyone else.

Yes TerryTunes, I have a new egonomically correct office chair, just hadn't built it yet.

I do expect to still attend some of the New England events (the Mason & Hamlin tour, the Cape [when they have it again], etc.).

And I hope to find some people down this way who want to host Piano Forums parties.

Actually, I had always figured that PW deserved the penthouse floor of a large and imposing skyscraper. \:D Kinda neat to think that something that reaches so many people can be run out of a PC in somebody's bedroom.

Hope you get settled in quickly, Frank. I'll be envying you when the first snowfall hits. Actually, I envy you now... the condo complex looks wonderful. Is your unit on the lake itself?

p.s. You need to update your profile location. ;\)

Well, it is on the top floor of the Condo :-)

The "lake" is a canal, part of the Inland Waterways. The "A" is pretty close to where I am (I'm in the 4th building from the left in the complex).

Hmmmm...

Just a thought...

How many bedrooms do you have to accommodate visitors for piano parties (or what have you) down there?

:p

I am glad to see that you have started to settle in, and wish you everything wonderful from this day forth!

Frank, the thing in the third picture looks like a sun dog. It's caused by ice crystals and sunlight. Usually there are two, one one each side of the sun.

I hope it symbolizes success and happiness in your new home.

Well, I certainly wish you the best. Ft. Lauderdale's classical music scene is pretty non-existent. Maybe you can help get something off the ground there.

Best wishes,
sleepy

Frankie,

Welcome to the south! Now, you're a neighbor! Sorry to hear you're doing this alone, but there is life on "the other side"!

When you get settled, give me a jingle and get us caught up on life in Florida (you old man-you!). At least I "stopped" in Georgia! (LOL)

Paul

Oh, Frank I am late to the party! Congrats on the new place!

When last we met I did have to wonder if Florida was in your future ;\)

Best of luck to you and I hope that you threw away all the shovels!

Hi Frank...sorry did not respond earlier...you see I too moved to Florida - Coral Gables area.

My wife (a professional musician at a major NYC orchestra) decided to retire and was offered a professorship at Univ of Miami, so off we went. We moved in July and haven't been on line much.

Wishing you all the best. See you've found linkedin, it's a great site. In the short time here have met some great people and even some I worked with earlier in my career who moved here.

While I'm working out of my home (or trying to) would love to get together some time...

Just remember my favorite phrase..."life isn't what you're given, it's what you make of it." And I know you will make a whole lot...

Best Wishes

Welcome to Florida, Frank!

I beat you down here by one month.

I would invite you over for dinner and company, and hire you to tune the BB, but being over here at the end of the panhandle, I might as well be three states away. Consider yourself to have a standing invitation, however.

Thanks Ed,

I do visit friends in Tampa/St. Pete, and Hamossosa, so I might just drive a little further up and take you up on your offer.
