Cheryl and I spend the winters (mid-Oct thru mid-April) at West View Ridge Resort in Haines City.. We both work part time at Disney for the free access and the extra spending money.
In the summer we have a house in Bellaire and I work seasonally in guest relations at Turtle Creek Casino and Cheryl works part time at a nearby upscale resturaunt.
Life is good. We are very blessed and very thankful..
