Shame on those who complain about winter visitors
In response to the person/s who have written about your winter guests, I say shame on you!
I am a snowbird from Idaho and I am a license plate watcher, just to see who is holding up the traffic and gee, guess what? Most of the time, it is an Arizona plate! Wow, go figure. A lot of locals like our money but you would have us leave it and go back home. Too bad we are staying. If YOU don’t like it, you move! I go into a bar and what do I hear people/locals complaining about ... the gravy train that keeps coming back year after year! Without us, half your businesses would close up and unemployment would be 60 percent. Now that I am on the subject of locals, you think we enjoy the sounds of your dogs barking all through the night guarding us from feral cats. I’ll deal with cats – they don’t wake me up at midnight, 2 a.m., 4 a.m., etc. If we can hear them from two blocks away, you can’t tell me you can’t hear them in your own back yard! I have met a lot of good people here in Yuma and I like the city and lifestyle here.
What I don’t care for are these people who think they are more important or on a tighter schedule. They think they are much better drivers and inconsiderate. I’m not talking about most of you fine and good people of Yuma, just those who complain about your guests and fellow neighbors. Remember everybody has loved ones, problems, aches and pains etc. We are all here just a very short time in comparison to eternity, so can’t we try to get along? Don’t give it to the government to correct the problems we all know how they work, spend thousands of dollars and not do a darn thing.
Thank you for reading this. I really mean this: God bless and keep you. In all your/our trials and tribulations, also remember Jesus loves you.
