In Lakewood people just don't care what or who you are, that's the thing I like about the area.

Not exactly Lakewood but not far away:

I'm waiting on Mount Vernon on White Rock Lake to sell for ~$29 million.

Lakewooder - Did you go to any of the homes on the Lakewood Home Tour this year?

That was the house the owner wanted to tear down, but was met by resistance from preservationists. I've met him, he probably wanted a more modern looking place.

I went first to Lakewood Elementary school for the crafts sale, then checked out the middle school's renovation, and then visited five of the homes on the tour.

Did you see the vintage 1933 Potter Art Metal Studios plaster light fixture they had on display in one of the classrooms from the auditorium? Nice, old, unique, ornate, heavy...something I'm glad they decided to save, re-work and reuse.

I'm kind of disappointed at the interior.
