My dog isn’t used to the cold temperatures yet.
- We had to move to a different location after I found a better job.
We used to live in Brandon, Florida. That’s a small town right outside of Tampa. Tampa is a great city and a wonderful place to live. There are a dozen different cool things to do in the area including the aquarium, zoo, and Busch Gardens. Old Tampa Bay has excellent fishing and the gulf is right on the other side of the Bay. It was really hot and humid all the time when I was living in the Tampa Bay area. It was nice when I was in my twenties and I wanted to spend every weekend at the beach. I’m much older now, and the thrill of going to the beach wore off. When my job offered me a promotion if I took a job up north in Boston, I had to think about the opportunity for approximately 30 seconds. It was a very big raise and a serious promotion and I wasn’t going to give it up. I know my dog misses living in Tampa as much as me, but when it is cold I let him sleep in the bed. He loves crawling under the covers and snuggling up by my feet. The two of us run the heat as much as we can and I even have a space heater in the bedroom for nights when it is very cold. I honestly don’t mind their frigid temperatures and I am looking forward to learning how to ski. We’re pretty close to a couple of ski resorts and that is one hobby I never thought I would be able to enjoy.
