By PAUL PRICE BOCA RATON Enthusiastic condominium dwellers, three area couples declare that even having an investment in the place does not influence their enthusiasm. It's hard to believe, but this seems actually to be the case with former Park Avenue, New Yorkers Charles Anderson and wife Isabelle, the Milton Highlands from Lake Shore Drive, Chicago, and Victor and Helen Adams, relatively "long-time" Floridians by way of Cape Cod from New Jersey. Seated in the club house of their oceanfront condominium, the three couples talked about what they like about condominium living in South Florida. Sylvia Highland was first to wrap up the feeling of the trio of couples, "It's fresh air, sunshine, the ocean, safety of our own place, close to everywhere, a country atmosphere without isolation. Milton and I just love it." All three couples "officially" moved into their condominium apartments almost a year ago. The Highlands' apartment fronts onto the ocean. The Andersons live, as he says "right in the middle, overlooking the condominium's dock." The Adams' apartment faces the Intra-coastal Waterway. "You'd be surprised, I'm sure," Milton Highland says, "that there is so much compatibility among the people living here. You'd be safe in saying that not one of us knows of anyone here that we don't get along with famously." by BROYHILL CLAYTON MARCUS FOX CONOVER All three couples are agreed that condominium living is "fun." Isabelle Anderson remarks, "Sure, there were some 'new' things, but that's true anytime anyone moves anywhere. I honestly can't say that this has been anything but wonderful. After this first year, Charles and I expect that it's only going to improve." Finding outside help be it for housecleaning, cooking or any other is not a new problem for the three women. They agree that it is no more difficult in South Florida than it was "back home." Helen Adams remarks, "But I really haven't worried about it here. Our northern friends might not really understand, but for housecleaning, one doesn't have as much to worry about. It's clean here." Sylvia Highland is quick to agree, "Unless you've lived in Chicago or, I guess, New York, a person probably can't appreciate how really clean it is here." Isabelle Anderson, who had the same houseman in New York City for 17 years, says that she gets along quite well without "help." She, as did the other women, says that the smaller, more compact, living arrangement of their condominium apartment makes extra help unnecessary. Anderson, 70, retired five years ago. A Marine during World War I, he keeps fit by golfing every morning and swimming every afternoon. He Is a former vice-president, sales manager and director of a New York City firm that helped create the Pepsi-Cola Co. At the time of his retirement, he was vice president and general manager of restaurant operations for the Mayflower chain. Adams, 70, retired 14 years ago after a career that, he says, could best be described as "free enterprise personified." He, at various times and sometimes overlapping, operated a glass company, an airport, a carpet business "and other things" in the Union-Passaic-Clifton area of New Jersey. Before coming to Florida in 1962, he and wife Helen tried six years of retirement on 15 acres "with a 200-year-old captain's house on Cape Cod." Highland, at 65, is the most recent retiree. For 37 years he operated an insurance brokerage firm bearing his name in his native Chicago. The three couples, strangers a year ago, are close friends now. Although they have diverse interests, they have a common meeting ground in joint ownership of their condominium and at its recreational facilities. dining 3Minr ROOMS RECLINERS by LA-Z-BOY BURRIS TERRY LANIER Cochrane j t'rf tA J'Sj Stu t ''" " TOWi CAMPER LU VACATION TIME PROBLEMS??
