Summary
Four not-so-old seniors have moved in together in a Florida home. They share the house, their dreams, and a whole lot of cheesecake. Dorothy's main goal is to find a companion she can relate to, while her mother, Sophia loves to tell "Picture this" type of stories. Rose is a little corny, but lovable never-the-less, and Blanche spends her time courting every man she can lay her hands on. All these fiesty seniors have either been divorced or widowed in the past and are having fun living life in the Sunshine State
