Nah, hasn't rained for days. The hurricane in Mexico going to bring us some rain? I don't want to have to hire someone to water the oleanders down there while I'm here.

I have lived in Sun City for 3.5 years. The plus side is lower taxes, clean well cared for neighborhoods, many people upgrading and improving their property. For me the downside is "cheap" not thrifty people. If it is a dime at a sale they want it half price. Coupon carrying crazy people who will knock you down to be the first through the restaurant door but need a walker otherwise. I never knew people revert to childlike behavior as they get old. It is really disgusting. Go to a local medical facility and you will hear them "comparing" how sick they are. I volunteer, outside of Sun City. Tried it here and the "old timers" were so very rude and unwelcoming. Now I volunteer in a completely different area with happy well adjusted not depressing people. My advice especially for boomers is go elsewhere. Today young retired people are younger at heart, friendly and positive in outlook. Oh yes, I am planning to move. Good value here in homes but not worth the rest of it.

Isn't it wonderful that we all have choices. Those who don't like adult communities can live in family residential areas and visa-versa. As for financial abilities, there are rich and poor living in both kinds of communities. The big issue here is the negativism and bitterness that humanity exhibits against anyone who chooses to live the way that best suits him/her. If you don't like the lifestyle where you life don't live there, if you don't like the lifestyle of another community, don't move there. Let's stop judging our neighbors and start examining our own lifestyle.

I didn't say anything about life styles you feeble minded dullards. It's the people who are the problem. You are the problem. Go back to your nursing homes, eat your mush and try not to crap yourself tonight, okay?

We have low crime rate, lots of clubs. The computer club has about 1800-2000 members ( firstsuncity.com ), RV club abt 5-600 members.( scazrvclub.com . Just about any club that may interest you. Stain Glass, Art, Sewing, Bowling, square dance,and about 60-80 others. Golf and mini golf, tennis, bocci, lawn bowl, and on and on. You can't be bored in Sun City.
I agree. Small groups of small people wanting to stir up things with lies.

Transplant from San Diego. Came here in '13. What a nightmare. Be glad to get out of here. I can think of better places to die. There is really nothing here for me. The medical scares me, the lack of caring, accountability. It's like who care you're all just a bunch of old folks on your death beds, be thankful for what you get. The driving here is like people going to a funeral. And oh the rubberneckers, the freeway system is so antiquated that one accident and everybody has to slow down and watch for the fire and traffic backs up for miles. Fortunately I ride my Goldwing si I can maneuver around the drivers who are doing anything but driving. I know I look at them, shaving, watching t.v. , cell phone, eating, whatever. Everybody just follows like sheep off a cliff. Yea be glad to be gone.

I personally dont understand why someone wants to live in a retirement community. The problem with society is that the elderly now don't have any community involvement and are segregating themselves from the other generations. Grandkids have restictions on visiting grandparents, such a shame. i consider theses places for cranky old people who dont like to pay school taxes (dysart school district)and thier only interest is themselves , nothing to better the community as a whole. I will always live around young people and love to volunteer and interact with all people. I'm only 45 but I really dont think this will change. I hope some of theses people get a chance to volunteer and intereact but I guarantee less than 10 probably do.. anytime I drive through there its almost a ghost town.
Sounds like you're the narrow minded person; you're judgmental, poorly informed and bias. Maybe you should consider volunteering, a worthy endeavor for someone like yourself - a self-absorbed individual who still has quite a bit to learn about life.

Rec center fees are discriminatory. Singles pay the same as a couple. Disabled pay the full price but cannot use the facilities. There should be an administrative fee of only $25. Then if one really starts to utilized the facilities...pay up. There are sun city residents/owners who are grandfathered in at a lower rate. That sucks. and if that is not discriminatory..what is?
