    It's nice being in such an affluent

    neighborhood. My next door neighbor seems to have added a beautiful water feature to his house. It's a waterfall that streams loudly from his second story gutter in a torrent onto his driveway. It's not where I would have put it, but it's pretty cool! ;)

    Love It

    My neighborhood can be kind of scary but I love it. I say scary but entertaining. With all the crazy and/or drunk people roaming the streets at night, I feel really normal. I hope that doesn’t sound insensitive.

    Labeled

    It may be a little bit rougher than others, but I can't help but be amused often. I have a large yard for city life, but even with that, my dog Suzie won't go in the yard. I like to think she's smart. That old line, "don't eat and sh!t in the same place." She requires walking and...
