Ringtones and The Villages

You haven’t seen true pandemonium until you’ve witnessed the mad fumbling of pocket and purse searching in The Villages when a default ring tone goes off.

Suddenly, accompanying the alarm, an orchestra of candy wrappers and groans create a soundtrack to the story of each person desiring to answer their phone.

Even the ones who had their grandkids update their ringtones leap out of their geriatric slumber to answer the incoming call… It could be important.

Perhaps it’s the IRS calling to verify their social security number. Maybe it’s a shipping update on that Viagra order.

The rumpus is further exaggerated as wives plead with their weary husbands to hurry up, disparaging their every effort with wrinkly contempt.

Everyone over 60 fumbles through their belongings.

Peppermint candies and Werther’s Originals scatter across the floor. Lightly crumbled tissues float away. Hands get stuck in pockets. Walkers and canes tumble. Hips are broken. Emergency rooms are inundated. Such is life in the world’s largest retirement community.

Florida Man robs the woman who gave him a place to sleep

Anthony Wayne Sandusky

GROVELAND – A Mascotte man staying overnight at a woman’s home said he took items from her — including a stamp collection worth $250,000 — because she was being mean to him, deputies said.

Anthony Wayne Sandusky, 26, of Mascotte has been charged with grand theft of property valued at more than $100,000.

In an arrest affidavit, Lake County Sheriff’s deputies said a Groveland woman reported Wednesday that she allowed Sandusky to stay the night at her Bay Lake Road home because he said he had nowhere to go.

She fell asleep, and when she awoke, her mother told her that the man had closed all the blinds, locked the front door and started carrying stuff out the back of their home, investigators said.

The woman later found two bags full of items in an adjacent field. Inside the bags were various household items, her purse, jewelry boxes and the stamp collection valued at $250,000. Full Story »

Together, we can make a difference.

We are dedicated to becoming a Karma Neutral State. We want Florida’s karmatic number to be perfectly balanced at zero. Laughing at other people’s misery brings negative karma.

We are still going to make fun of everybody who shows up on this site, but we are also going to start getting more serious about fixing stupid shit.

From this point on, we will occasionally start petitions to bring about justice, and to fix things that are unfair or that defy morals.

Only the “Right Of Adults To Cannabis” amendment can secure your RIGHT to possess, cultivate, and use cannabis in a manner similar to your 2nd amendment right to “keep and bear arms” … think about that for a minute.

Whether you agree or disagree with Americans right to gun ownership, the strength of this protected right is clear and viewed my many as absolute. Floridians For Freedom​ believes adults right to whole plant cannabis should be comparable and hopes you agree. Full Story »
