(Happy New Year)

Here it is, December 30.  Only one more day until 2017 is done and gone.  So what has the neighborhood accomplished in that year.  Well, we've had tons of family visitors.  We've had plenty of volunteers.  We've sure played a lot of golf around The Villages.  We've bowled.  We've played tennis.  We've played pickleball.  We've played bocce.

There's been some cruises taken.  Plenty of dining out.  Some have spent quality time at Disney World and other parks nearby.  Some have taken classes like art, bridge, basket-weaving.  Many have chosen to expand their educations by learning new skills, like billiards or table-tennis.  We've gone to dozens of the latest movies at one of the three top-notch theaters here.  We've seen special shows given at the Sharon (that's the Sharon L. Morse Performing Art Center to anyone outside The Villages).  Perhaps you got to see Willie Nelson, Paul Anka, or the Beach Boys concert.  Or maybe it was Olivia Newton John or Kenny G.  Or simply a great night out to listen to the Duke Ellington Band or just take in a ballet or The Villages Philharmonic Orchestra.  Whatever you like, they have something for your taste.

We've spent time at one of the local swimming pools.  We've played horseshoes and shuffleboard.  There has been Cedramic classes and yoga classes, Trivia Evenings, Bunco, Local High School sports and tournements and self-defense classes.

Perhaps, you decided to join an aerobics class or a dance class.  Did you play Samba or Mah-Jongg?  Or if you were into professional sports, you could have attended the NY Mets training camp.

There has been volleyball, plenty of balls were hit at one of the many golf driving ranges or perhaps you attended one of the Golf Demo Days given by the golf Pros.

Perhaps it was kayaking on one of the many local lakes, radio-controlled speed boats or sail boats, or target shooting and competition with bow and arrows.

Then again, maybe you simply joined one of the hundreds of clubs advertised weekly in the Daily Sun.

Yep, it's a boring life-style, isn't it?  Did I leave anything out?  You bet I did.  There just isn't room for everything.

"Mack the Knife" or "The Ballad of Mack the Knife", originally "Die Moritat von Mackie Messer", is a song composed by Kurt Weill with lyrics by Bertolt Brecht for their music drama Die Dreigroschenoper, or, as it is known in English, The Threepenny Opera. It premiered in Berlin in 1928 at the Theater am Schiffbauerdamm. The song has become a popular standard recorded by many artists, including a US and UK number one hit for Bobby Darin in 1959.
