Piggybacking off of the question posed to me frequently that, “So, how do you like Lakeview?” that I wrote about in my last Outback Observations, another response that comes to mind is, “It feels like a bit of a bubble.” Most who have lived here for quite some time would say that’s pretty obvious. From […]
