Blanche was the southern belle.  Perhaps  Rose  (Betty White)?

 Yes, Blanche then. She was “easy”, Rose was “ditsy”. Dorothy was “sensible”.

The Villages of Bellisseria, anyone? Given what I've seen in my neighborhood recently, I'm guessing it will be similar to its Florida namesake, complete with misbehaving seniors and Patch's golf carts!

🤣

Def retirement for me. I have been off and on with my mains and actually started Pre-secondlife with linden worlds (horrible back then in the test phases at the university-pre terraforming days). 

I'm burned out. Need to kick back and enjoy the orginal feel.

No more running sims, designing ssim templates, Djing charity events-retired as a DJ i nRL as well except twice yearly events. 

Many of us are older in RL and after 15 or so years we get exhausted from the virtual worlds. 

Add in cost and the thousands of dollars spent on sims and contracts. 

So its nice to kick back for the most part and enjoy bellesseria.

So much this ^^    We  owned an estate & club *mumble* back in the day *cough* and  it's been a long time since I truly unreservedly enjoyed SL.   Bellisseria has made that happen again for me, like falling in love with your spouse after years of discord because you got reminded of everything awesome that attracted you to begin with

If we’re going to play Village People, I want to be the Indian (sorry Selene, but I like his outfit).

The Village of Bellisseria--  yes, it is coming back to me now.......

 

This is how I got here, and I have remarked on just how many bubble rezzers there are in Bellisseria , accidental, I think not.

@Cam Mode     I LOVE that show sooo much,  the ending was so trippy. I made my wife watch it years ago & she was just "now my brain won't ...brain right"

Well, sign me up!

Retirement homes? To be serious, I believe that there is potential for virtual reality to be a place to form communities for those of us who are no longer so mobile, but still want new experiences.

I considered building a replica of my retirement community in Minecraft and inviting my neighbors to join, but quickly realized that they weren't quite ready yet. Maybe the next generation...

The latest guess around here is shortly after the SL16B Bash because they will be previewing a new Theme at the Bash.

Actually, I feel that it already is.
SL in particular seems to be the place where people who passed 40 can look and feel they were still 21, without the burden of (most of) their RL physical limitations which inevitably start to kick in around 40/50. I, myself, am 49 and I am nowhere near the oldest in my circle of friends (I'm not the youngest either).

I have started to notice that when people reveal their RL age, it is more and more often an age over 60, and that's not even the oldest I have come across. Recently an 89-year-old resident (I didn't know her) passed away, and I was struck with how people described her as being passionate about SL.

So yeah, I know that there are many middle-aged and elderly people on SL, I just don't know how many. It could be interesting to find out.

Minecraft is not quite the kind of game where people like to live in homes, built by someone else. SL is much more suited for that 🙂

Also, the presence of the many 60s, 70s, and 80s themed clubs on SL can serve as a sign of the presence of these age groups. No way that you can make me believe that these clubs are run and frequented by mostly 20-year-olds 🙂
