Enjoy the carefree days of summer (and retirement) with your family!!! Sorry you can't enjoy 12 mos of summer like those of us in Florida :-)))
VG, as much as I love summer, by September, I am ready for cold weather and some snow. I love autumn when all the colors are so gorgeous and the air is brisk, like winter, and love those warm spring sunny days. I'd miss the season changes.
Besides, I HATE bugs and Florida has some of the biggest, ugliest ones I've ever seen. LOL
So, I'll stay in Maryland.....
