We have been very lucky with having very nice next door neighbors. This is Sueanna (yes, that’s the correct spelling) and her sister, Janette. We had them over for happy hour last night.
They are quirky and crazy like us so we get along well. We yell at each other over the patio wall and they talk to Poncho over the wall when we are gone for the afternoon and he is barking. They also have a dog so understand what it is like to have to leave them alone at home at times.
The unit on the other side of us has been unoccupied for a number of years, so that hasn’t been a problem. Most people don’t use their front doors at all….they all get in their vehicles through their garages, so there isn’t much traffic in the court yard.
Jim and I figure we aught to open the garage door, put out some chairs and a table with loud-ish music and see who comes into the ally to investigate, then invite them to join us for a happy hour. What do you think? Would that work in getting to meet more of our neighbors?
It has been unseasonably hot the last couple of weeks with temps in the mid 90’s. We have adapted and only put the a/c on for a few hours in the hottest part of the day which here is between 2 and 5 p.m. It will be interesting to see how much that will increase our electricity bill.
That’s it for today…hope I can keep you interested in reading this blog with short, not too interesting posts like this….we’ll see.
Remember, you are loved.
