More HOA Fun or I live in the weirdest place ever
Actual letter today from our HOA.
In an effort to save money and to be more echofriendly, we stocked the ponds with tilapia. These fish multiply quickly and eat most all the vegetation in the ponds. This keeps us from having to add pesticides and other chemicals in the water.
Tilapia is a warm water fish and when the water gets to cold the fish will die off. You may have noticed fish floating in the ponds. When the fish die, it attracts the turkey buzzards that come around to eat the dead fish. This should only last for a few days.
These large black birds are causing a lot of attention and I wanted to make sure the community knew there is no reason to be alarmed.
My pretend response:
Does being "echofriendly" mean that we will be constructing a stone ravine or cave in which our voices will finally be able to reverberate or will we be hiring people to repeat everything we say three fading times when on designated walking paths? Because it's about time we addressed echo issues in our community.
Thank you for the explanation regarding the large black birds. I was worried that some residents were ignoring the leash laws or it was a sign of the Apocalypse or something. Good to know that it is just a circle of life thing brought on by budget concerns.
I look forward to the annual Fish Fry at the Clubhouse being scheduled sooner rather than later. Perhaps the proceeds can be used for a spellcheck upgrade on the community servers or hiring a marine biologist to consult on a breed of fish that can survive a temperature dip lower than 60 degrees.
Hugs, Hugs, Hugs,
