I want to thank all of you for keeping me from making a huge mistake. I was going to move to TV...but that was when erroneously thought that it was a perfect place...that the owners removed all of the dangerous creatures and replaced them with computerized snakes, alligators, etc...and that every day would be happy and filled with sunshine and laughter...that dogs didn't poop or bark..and EVERYBODY was nice...mail was delivered to my door by a smiling mailman, landscaping was done by little yard gnomes while I slept....everyone obeyed all of the traffic laws (especially in the roundabouts), every restaurant served gourmet food at amazingly low prices, and no one ever, ever imposed upon their neighbors in any fashion. This was before I found out that there are actually human beings there that are sometimes not perfect...ah well, so much for Nirvana. Ok..just kidding...if it was perfect, my moving there would upset the balance anyway..I can't wait to get there!!!

Trish,

You sound like a person with not only good common sense but a sense of humor. Looking forward to making your aquaintance. You will be an asset to TV. You already ARE an asset to TOTV.

Kindest wishes,
Gracie

We should remove the statue of Harold Schwartz in Spanish Springs and replace it with a statue of Gracie Girl too!

I think Harold and Gracie are much alike. My mother, who lived in TV for 18 years, mentioned meeting Mr. Schwartz many times at the clubs, pools and golf courses and he always asked if she and her girlfriends were having fun.

Hate is too strong a term, but does anyone else think that the fake historical signs in LSL are tacky?
