Lois and I got to know Linda Read when her and husband Bob relocated from Clearwater to Woodbrook Estates in Lakeland. Bob and Linda Read joined us in Woodbrook Estates in early October, 2013, moving into unit 247. The Reads live in Wasaga Beach, ON Canada (the longest fresh water beach in the world) where they purchased a new home in a retirement community located on a golf course.
Linda personifies happiness whatever she does!! For example we spent a day at Disney visiting all the non-pay areas beginning on the Boardwalk and ending up in Downtown Disney. Did we have a great time?? The 4 of us are still talking about it!! And that happened over 1 year ago!!!!
While the conversation is varied, there is a common theme, and that theme is SHUFFLEBOARD!! Linda has been working on her pro since arriving in the Park. AND FOR LINDA, working means just that. Each day you will find her at the Woodbrook Courts perfecting shots and working on strategy. Each day, if others want enjoyment, they know fun can be had if they are able to join with Linda as she practices.
The pursuit has not been without disappointments, but then, is there a worthy goal that does not have Ups and Downs along the way?? The unique factor with Linda was; those Ups and Downs never ever robbed her of her sense of humor.
To-day, 2015 11 30, while shuffling with Art Healy in Clearwater, she achieved her objective!! She could not contain her joy; she phoned husband Bob as soon as she was certain she had the needed ONE HALF OF ONE POINT!! My phone rang, as did many others, as soon as she and Art arrived back in the park.
THE ONLY PERSON AS HAPPY AS LINDA WAS HUSBAND BOB!! FOLKS, NOW YOU KNOW WHAT ATTRACTS US HUMANS TO SHUFFLEBORD!!
