Heavenly Village is fun when you're not worried about parking

I am a disabled senior unable to walk far. In the 10 years I have lived at Lake Tahoe, I have never been to Heavenly Village Cinema and I have been to the shopping center stores but once, when my car was being serviced at the 76 station.

That gave me time to look into all of the wonderful shops and take advantage of the sales and have lunch. I took my time as I was told I should not worry about my car and parking.

That was the most fun and enjoyable day. I wish I had taken in a movie as I had the time without the rush and worry about parking.

The Blind Men and the Elephant, or the 800-pound Gorilla

Scene 1: Picture a 50,000-pound RV with car trailing on hitch parked on top of a fire hydrant, in front of a house in a large (many million-dollar homes) residential neighborhood.

Scene 2: People are driving by, oblivious to the 50,000-pound RV with car trailing on hitch parked on top of the fire hydrant, pointing at pine needles in the gutter of one house, tree limb close to roof of another house, wood-burning stove in one place – all of these places have incidentally been in existence since the early 1970s, long before any RV like that was built.

Scene 3: From a statistical position, the most likely cause of fire in this neighborhood at this time would be the RV or the car it is towing.

I am not against RVs – I love RVs. What I do not like is anything blocking access to a fire-hydrant at any time.
