Glad to hear you and your family made it Texas safely. I must admit I'm rather envious. And, "Ugh!" I am NOT a fan of Texas HOAs...

Envious? Why is that?

HOAs... I feel like they have entirely too much control. If someone wants to put a bunch of plastic flamingos in their front yard, they should be able to as a way to express their personality. But, no, HOAs feel that this creates a disturbance in their carefully balanced idea of what is "proper" and what looks appealing to them. I can understand that overgrown lawns can create problems beyond just looking bad (pests are attracted to the environment, which can spread to the next house over—this happened in VA when my neighbors didn't cut their lawn for a whole year and we were besieged by snakes and mice trying to make a life in our basement), but when some dude comes around to your front lawn with a ruler in one hand and a camera in the other, they can fuck right off.

Because I love Texas. I miss Texas. I love all the different parts of Texas. No matter where I end up on this globe, I will always have a fondness for Texas and consider it home :)
