I AM WRITING IN CAPS AS IT IS EASIER FOR ME TO SEE WHAT I TYPE. I HAVE BEEN VISITING THIS AREA OF THE MOGOLLON RIM FOR THE PAST EIGHT YEARS. I FIND THE SHOW LOW, PINETOP-LAKESIDE AREA TO BE VERY PLEASANT FOR THE 60 PLUS SET. I PURCHASED A SMALL PROPERTY IN A SENIOR PARK THIS PAST AUGUST. THIS WILL BE MY SUMMER HOME; SIX MONTHS OUT OF THE YEAR. SHOW LOW SEEMS TO BE A PRETTY TOGETHER LITTLE CITY. IT HAS AN INDOOR AQUATIC CENTER, A SMALL CITY BUS THAT RUNS FROM SHOW LOW ALL THE WAY TO THE HONDAH CASINO WITH MULTIPLE STOPS IN BETWEEN. THE SUMMER CLIMATE IS IDEAL; IT SURE BEATS MESA AT 115 DEGREES IN JULY !!!! I NO LONGER WORK SO I DON'T COMPETE IN THE JOB MARKET. UNFORTUNATELY, IT SEEMS POOR FOR THOSE WHO NEED TO WORK. THE MURDER RATE IS VERY HIGH FOR SUCH A SMALL COMMUNITY. I GUESS MURDER-SUICIDE IS AT AN ALL TIME HIGH HERE. THIS IS VERY SAD. IT APPEARS TO BE AN ANDY OF MAYBERRY COMMUNITY; THEN YOU SCRATCH BELOW THE SURFACE, IT HAS A NASTY UNDERBELLY. LOTS OF ALCOHOL AND DRUG RELATED ARRESTS, ECT. I HAVE NOTICED A WELL ENDOWED BIKER COMMUNITY (I DON'T MEAN MA AND PA TAKING THE GOLD WING OUT FOR A SUNDAY DRIVE). IF I WAS A MUCH YOUNGER PERSON, AND I HAD A PROFESSIONAL CAREER, I WOULD STILL JUMP AT THE CHANCE TO RAISE MY FAMILY HERE. AS I SAID, I AM IN THE SENIOR REALM AND LIVE HERE ONLY SIX MONTHS OUT OF THE YEAR AND I CAN SAY NOTHING ABOUT THE WINTERS, HEALTHCARE, ECT. MY PRIMARY ADDRESS IS MESA, AZ. I STILL GIVE THE AREA 3-5 STARS. IF YOU LOVE THE WOODS YOU ARE HOME.
