Please keep posting your nonsense here. It gives me a chuckle. But it does make me sad that someone like you is moving to Colorado.
Ok, what should I say to your last comment? How about, “it makes us sad that someone like you lives in Colorado”!

Sorry, but YOU made me say that. Actually, sounds like you make about as much nonsense as I do. LOL

Dreaming Of Hawaii, I’m sure you are a nice person, but you must realize that not everyone wants to be like you, or even should be.

Just because I done a Thread about the two tattoo parlors that opened in Loveland, doesn’t mean much. The person that wrote the article about both, in the Loveland news app, sounded more concerned than I do.

Let’s not continue to hassle each other about it or other Threads/Replies that I’ve done. Loveland, like Parker was for us, has a lot that we like. That’s it.

Those people are breaking laws and either harming others or putting others at risk.

The same can't be said for drag queens reading aloud or for people giving or getting tattoos.

I'm sure there are many more than just two tattoo parlors/stores in Loveland.

This is nothing new. Tons of people with tattoos in the area, and have been for quite awhile. A much higher percentage than in the south too.

Just get a LoveBoat tattoo on one arm, and an elk on the other. Many older persons have tattoos, so you'll fit in nicely that way. It can be a whole new you for today's modern Colorado.

I really don’t know where this tattoo information is coming from and why all the teasing towards wife and I. We were at Boyd Lake last July and didn’t see any tattoos.....really. We ate breakfast at McDonalds, on Eisenhower Blvd (West) one morning and didn’t see any in there. Had breakfast at Village Inn, again none. Ate at a Mexican Restaurant on Eisenhower Blvd., none.

However, did see a number of them at the Walmart and many at the Golden Corral on the east end of Eisenhower Blvd.

Appeared that the west end of Eisenhower Blvd, where we stayed, was pretty different than the east end. The east end was more like Denver, to us. The east end is becoming more “big city”, while the west end is still staying more “small town”.

The tattoos were very noticeable in the Golden Corral, on the east end, but not even close to how people look here.

Gotta live here in Jacksonville, like we have, to really, really see the difference between here and Loveland area.

Even with the drag queen thing and the parlors, do people in Loveland, and the area, really want it to look like Denver or Los Angeles?

When we were there, we had some folks tell us (straight out), "We don't go to Denver for anything. To us, Denver is just another Los Angeles, but in Colorado."

Yep, we were told that.

Do you have some reason to believe that your online Archie Bunker schtick is going to do something to stem that tide ?

It's the traffic and the parking that makes most of us less than eager to head down to Denver.

Maybe the last thing you should be considering is moving to an area with meteoric growth. Sounds like it's nothing but downside for "you and the wife."

Looks like there are at least a dozen ... just on Yelp.

Well, many, many years ago, I lived just outside Los Angeles and was even an EMT in both Los Angeles and Orange County. I can see where Denver would be like Los Angeles, but not Loveland or the area. FC is big, but still not like Denver or L.A. and definitely not the crime that those two cities see.

BUT, you do know that this "meteoric growth" isn't in all of Loveland. You did read what I said about the difference between the west and east ends of Loveland/Eisenhower Blvd.?

It's definitely not "downside" for us. Like I keep repeating...…..YOU need to live here to understand what we are talking about. Or, could you live in a population of 931,000 people with murders almost on a daily basis and, can't forget all of the bank robberies here. Total population here is 1.5 million.

Loveland is nice, even if one end is somewhat-to-very different than the other.
