    Won't You Be My Neighbor?

    Tonight I came home and drove the alleyway behind our houses. Our garages are all rear entry with one shared long stretch of driveway so it's rather active with everyone coming and going all the time. The community pool is back there and our community play area. Tonight driving...

    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.

    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...

    Birds And Bells Only Today

    Yesterday morning the sounds of mowers and whackers filled the air in preparation. My neighbors all throw wild parties on three day weekends. My immediate neighbor always remembers to invite Stinky and me, although I always refrain. The smells of foreign cuisines fills the air...

    Fits Me To A "t"

    I love my neighborhood because everyone if friendly but not intrusive. I feel very safe here and I enjoy seeing the well-kept (if not small) houses. The homes are not fancy but the yards are pretty with the nice trees and winding street (just one street). We have access to all...

    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! ;)
