I don't know if I have said this before or not, but if I did, it bares
repeating. If you live your life where you enjoy every day, you
never need to take a vacation. I pretty much feel that way about
living in the Mountain View Community. I did take a vacation
anyway, had a good time in spite of not being here, and returned a few
days ago. I am still basking in the glow.
Last night the HOA meeting was rousing as it has been of late, still
showing concern about speeding and reckless driving in our
community. Until all residents and their guests respect the
community and feel about it like I do, speeding will continue to be a
problem. In that vein, we have to take action to encourage those
who appear not to care. Since there has been a significant
increase in the number of cars dropping off and picking up children, the
Neighborhood Watch members will be more vigilant. Many of the
cars exceeding the 25 mph speed limit, probably do so in an effort to
get to work or home. If you are one of the grandparents providing
child care, please remind whoever drops the children off to slow
down. The Neighborhood Watch can identify the speeding cars,
verify which homes they are visiting and notify the management company,
at which point, the homeowner will receive a violation letter.
Let's work on keeping the community safe. If we all work together,
we can make a difference.
Another subject timely for summer is the use of the pool. I don't
think there is anything children enjoy more in the summer than a
swimming pool. With the increase in summer child care, there is
also an increase in the pool use. Everyone needs to remember this
is a senior community. The facilities here are for their enjoyment
and the enjoyment of their guests. When children are near a pool
they get excited and play sometimes becomes rough and boisterous.
You are the judge as to what is acceptable by your standards.
However, when there are residents sharing the pool, their enjoyment of
the pool should be taken into consideration. Again, this is a
One more thing before I get back into the glow of my vacation.
Whenever we have large functions at the clubhouse we need people (let's
say men) to help with the set up and take down of the extra tables and
chairs. We have a couple of guys who faithfully do this for us and
I thank them very much, but they could use some help. If you are
in good health and can lend a hand, contact Bob Victor.
