I wasn't aware this forum was limited to TV residents.

Besides, she has said in many posts that she and her husband are seriously considering moving here. To me it seems her interest and opinions are part of a due diligence process.

Perhaps you and many other posters on this thread should be more understanding and less apt to bully.

You may not have to live here, but you at least have to visit here to get get a real feel for what The Villages is all about. If she has visited here and considers this a possibility then opine away

I read through all the restrictions even though some are hard to understand and I am In total compliance.

I also make sure my bushes are foot off the neighbors wall and property line, bushes out front are less than 4 foot tall were they could be vision problem off the street when neighbors pull out driveway or turn at corner. I pressure wash mold off sidewalks, house, walls, and concrete strip out at street. I keep my shrubs trimmed and debris picked up. I don’t play obnoxious loud music or have Harley, I don’t park in the street or leave my car sticking out of my driveway. I can actually get my car in the garage is small CYV garage. I help out neighbors when asked. Basiclly I’m the prefect neighbor hardly seen or heard.

I don't think you have read all of the posts from both sides.

With apologies to Frank Zappa:

I'll take a drive to THE VILLAGES
Just before dawn
An' knock the little jockeys
Off the rich people's lawn
An' before they get up
I'll be gone, I'll be gone
Before they get up
I'll be knocking the jockeys off the lawn

Why can’t all villagers be like me, the prefect neighbor and follow all the rules.

I'm putting a deposit down tomorrow and we're moving in some time in late June/early July. So no, I don't live here yet. And if you took the time to learn that I've had 240+ posts, you could've wasted another 5 minutes to read a few of them and learn that I've already said I didn't live here yet, that we were seriously considering moving in, and that I was doing my due dilligence. Turns out we "could" put in a tacky pink flamingo on our front yard if we wanted to, at the home we're buying. I won't though, because I think they're tacky. And the neighbors so far seem to be especially lovely. Welcoming, warm and inviting. I think my husband and I did the right thing by looking in the "hysterical" section.
