What was it Dorothy said, “there’s no place like home”. I have lived in Venice Florida since one week after the ball rolled through Bill Buckner’s legs. I love this beautiful little town where I raised my kids. It was the poet who said “home is where the heart is” and with all the love I hold for this beautiful Gulf Coast Community…..
