I was browsing my recent email from the Lubbock Fun Club and saw an ad for "Vintage Township" I had to click on. Check this out!

Vintage Township - Lubbock New Homes - Lubbock, TX

I think it's sooooo pretty but what do y'all think? Would it turn almost "Stepford-like"?

Is your brother buying a home in "Vintage Township," Miss Martha? The homes and community are just gorgeous but I'm wondering if the neighbors are snooty and homogeneous, you know?

I think he is going to be staying with a friend of his fiance until after he gets married to his beautiful bride!
I'm going to suggest this community. I would think it would probably have some uppity people there, but he and his fiance would change all that! They are good people!!!

Looks wonderful! People in Lubbock takes lots of pride in their yards and landscaping......the soil will grow anything and with a little water the yards can be made beautiful. It looks like a very homey, comfortable place to live.

Uh, people getting involved in your business if they don't like what color you're planning to paint your shutters, or if they don't approve of the type of car you have in your driveway, or if they don't like the fact that your daughter or son is dating someone of another race. That's what would be wrong with it. I experienced this when I lived in New England and it was NOT comfortable.

This community seems like it has set itself apart from Lubbock and is quite insular. That would raise concerns for me, even though it is a really beautiful place.

When I lived in Midland, I received information in the mail...I thought it was really neat!!

As much as I loved Lubbock when I was going to Tech, I don't think I could live without my mountains now.

Having said that, Lubbock is a great city, and has a lot to offer!

Yay, my son's a Red Raider!!!! Guns up!!!!!

I enjoy visiting him in Lubbock and was thinking of moving there. That didn't put a smile on his 18-year-old face, LOL. He was all in favor of mum living closer (we were in the RGV at the time) but not THAT close. Now, that wouldn't have stopped me if I was really sold on the idea, but I decided Abilene was a better fit for me as it's more centrally located.

I don't mean to be a wet blanket about Vintage Township. It is such a beautiful place! LOL, I just think that even if I had the money, I might be too much of an individualistic, funky person to live there!I'd probably be the known as the odd, poetry-writing, gardener with the doggykids. (Kinda like Louise in Steel Magnolias, hahahahahahaha)
