Good Luck with the moving to Fla and finding a PT Job. I've been trying for a year to find one. I've been asked 3 times here in Lakeland how old I am. One employer told me they only hire college age employees. I have applied to every major retailer here. Perhaps it's easier in other areas of Fla finding jobs for retirees. Where I'm at is not the brightest bulb in the lamp. That can make finding work difficult. I'm finding between the lack of any PT work in th area. Then the very high cost of car insurance. The fact I can not find a company that will insure my mobile home. The horrible drivers. That I'm finding I am quickly losing interest in retiring down here. Best of luck.
