In terms of mansions, there are many areas of the city one could go and see them.

Alamo Heights, Olmos Park, Terrell Hills, Elm Creek, Greystone, Champions Run, The Dominion, Anaqua Springs, Shavano Park are some of the places I can think of.

Traffic in SA bad? I'm glad people like twinkle toes are moving away. Obviously they have other issues. Anyways, I can get anywhere in the city in 20 minutes no matter where I am with a few exceptions. I have been to cities like LA, Miami, Phoenix, Chicago and the traffic is so much worse. I travel all over Texas with my job and San Antonio by far has the least traffic of any city. I would rank the worst traffic in Texas as follows: Austin, Houston, Dallas-Ft. Worth and SA.

I am on the same boat, it is mind boggling when anyone says SA has horrible/bad traffic. However, Twinkle is entitled to her opinion and I respect it which is why I have been quiet on the issue.

Twinkle Toes, people on here attack you (and me sometimes), because they can under no circumstances accept your negative opinion as being valid. The truth hurts too much, and the easiest defense is to attack the credibility of the source (e.g., obnoxious, a troll, having "other issues," etc.). Just accept the anger as a sign that they see some truth in what you are writing that they cannot acknowledge.

It looks like Chimpie has moved on, folks...

Thank you for speaking on my behalf Hello, I appreciate that. As I explained earlier my reasoning for what I said had zero to do with how she feels about the traffic. If it were I would need to go reexamine my life because if I felt offended by that I know something was wrong with me. My comment was based on here excessive use of exclamations as well as a more sarcastic/snappy attitude which I had never seen her display before.

I have no problem with anyone, not Twinkle and not you, no one. So please d not insinuate how I feel about someone and please do not generalize people on this board.

Now back to the subject at hand. Chimpie, good luck with finding a place to call home.

Does anyone remember the old saying, "Kilroy was here?" San Antonio could say "Chimpie was here."

Thanks for the visit Chimpie and your views.

Okay, I've moved on as well. I'll just take my p iss-poor, obnoxious, sarcastic, snappy, mentally unbalanced, "have other issues" self out of here. Please forgive me for EVER stating my opinions. I realize my opinions are not valid and it was really presumptuous of me to have even thought that I was entitled to have opinions - or exclamation points!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

In memoriam, we will definitely be able to say "Twinkle Toes has gone to a better place."
