Won't You Be My Neighbor?

Our neighbors have moved. And I am sad.

They were the best neighbors EVAH!

It was a couple, about the age of my parents, with grown children my age and grandchildren my kids' ages. They babysat their grandkids often and my kids became good friend with them.

Our neighbors and us, we had the kind of sit-com relationship that we didn't have to knock on their door, we just came in. If we ran out of sugar, eggs, freezer bags, our cupboards were open to each other.

We trusted them with our house while we were away. We trusted them with our children when they were outside. They gave our kids birthday and Christmas presents.

It was a perfect relationship.

I am very bummed that they are gone.
Their house is empty and we are afraid of who will be moving in--you never know what you're going to get when someone new moves into your neighborhood.

So, if any of you are looking for a small, 3 bedroom house, let me know! I have the perfect one for you.
Although, I hear the neighbors have 4 kids and are quite strange.

  1. It's sad times have changed so much.
    My neighbors have enough pit bills to fill a pound and I believe they sell drugs too.
    Where did you say that house was again??


Please comment! Even if you just say "HI!".
