    That is very good news because twenty-nine to thirty years ago, we would have never been able to live down there. Heck, we even had problems here, back then because it was so country. Not that the people were, what I'd label as "redneck" but because they were country folk with prejudices and most lived their whole lives right here on this road, so they were not happy to see color come into the neighborhood but eventually they accepted us and stopped causing us grief and now our area is a very colorful and happy place.

    We were south of Gandy on west Ballast Point for a few months before we moved to Riverview. Some of it is redneck and some is pretty nice. I think the neighborhood Ballast Point itself is nice but that was to the east of us. Our neighbors were friendly but the people across the street were pretty sketchy. Riverview seemed safer and for the same price we got a much, much nicer house.

    I haven't noticed any problems with the mixed marriage so far. If it bugs people they are keeping a lid on it.

    Geesh, I didn't know where to find your response and now I see it. A lot of people are migrating to the Riverview area because the prices are much more reasonable than the rest of the Tampa Bay area. Are you finding any problems with your mixed marriage status in the area you chose? Just curious because I am of a 31 year mixed marriage and have seen Tampa change over the last 29 years.

    What area did you eventually end up in, Ballast Point? They are saying redneck but I think it's more military type and they were all right about Seminole Heights. Hope you are happy and enjoying Tampa.

    Thank you but we've found a place we really like in Riverview. I hope you're able to find a good renter!

    Okay, , all this is moot, I just paid attention to the year and so I am sure you don't need a place but if you are up for renewing your lease and want to move..... consider.

    My forum postings have been deleted. I was saying that I live in Tampa, in the Odessa area , just north of Carrollwood, which is a little bit away from the Lake Magdelene area and we need to rent our house out and have no issues with renting to responsible pet owners. I don't understand what the problem was with my postings and hope you get this one. In fact, I think the person that deleted my message suggested craigslist and hint, hint
