My mother was born in 1925, and lived in the house above that says Grandmother.
the home I live in now, is the owl that says Home.
It is 4.8 miles from my house to hers, As the Owl Flies it is only a mile.
My mother left Florida in 1943 and never got over missing Florida.
I loved this place from as far back as I have memories and in 1984 moved here.
Yesterday I met 2 of my 1st cousins that live right across that river, for breakfast in the Palmetto Historical District, only a few blocks from the house below..

I have loved Palmetto my whole life and tried to buy a house there, but when we bought in 1989 there was nothing we could afford.
I used owls to mark the map because I have owls in my yard and when I spent hours swinging on that front porch, the sound of barred owls, screech owls and doves are forever in my memories.
Time races forward and since we have not seen each other for 3 years, we decided we will make this a monthly THING and will try for once a month.
this is the outside of the building. Notice the boat. the Marina is only a block away and there is a boat ramp there.
