  1. Escaping the big city to the quiet confines of our GREAT HILL COUNRY. Once again, Don’t think you can come to our area and do as you wish; (RESPECT, OBEY, ENJOY) then go to YOUR home and do what it is you do. The Highland Lakes and surrounding communities are a NEIGHBORHOOD WATCH!!!!

  2. It’s hillbillies like this that spawn films like Texas Chainsaw Massacre and Crazy Hillbilly House of Horrors.
