Ria October 5, 2019 Share October 5, 2019 I was thinking how each of the girls ended up in Blanche’s house in Miami. Blanche is easy. At some point during her marriage, she and George moved there and bought the house. They were still living there when George died. Eventually she felt she needed to take in renters to help with the bills. My fanwank on Dorothy and Sophia is shortly after Stan left her, Dorothy decided to move to Miami. Her kids were grown but unmarried and childless. Her son traveled with his band. Her sister lived in California and her brother in Newark. There was nothing really keeping her in Brooklyn and the cost of living in Florida is much lower than Brooklyn. So she moved and took Sophia with her. I imagine they lived together until Sophia had a stroke and went to Shady Pines. So Dorothy looked for a place to live on her own and answered Blanche’s ad. Sophia moved in after the Shady Pine’s fire. Rose is the one who puzzles me. She had a widowed mother, at least five kids and grandkids in St. Olaf. Plus numerous brothers and sisters and extended family and friends. I just can’t see her moving to Miami by herself. Selling the farm after Charlie died makes sense. But leaving everyone to move to Florida? I just don’t see why. Maybe all that family was suffocating. 5 Link to comment
