    This is a wonderful testament to the importance of community. I hate to say that I really don’t know my neighbors very well. At best, we are passing acquaintances. I have the excuse that I moved here because I took a job promotion . My work life is so full of people and constant interaction that when I come home at the end of the day all I want is solitude. But that is not a good excuse. I really need to make an effort to know my neighbors. Thanks for the great post.

    I’ve noticed lack of neighbours and neighbourhoods a lot and lived a few places where it has practically felt like a crime to try and be friendly and get to know the neighbours. I’m not sure what causes this… But good neighbours and those relationships are wonderful both in good times and in bad. Hope you start discovering some good neighbours

    I was there . My dog Sophie wanted to go out around 10 PM. We stepped outside the door and I saw flames coming out of the chimney of the houseboat on the next dock. That neighbor burned bad stuff most of the time and I was afraid it might land on my neighbor Wendes boat. She was gone and I was babysitting her boat and another neighbors boat so I felt triple stressed!
    Then I realized the fire was not coming from the chimney. It was coming out of the wall on the first floor. I started screaming “Fire”!!
    Kimberly peeped her head out the upstairs window . “where? ” she asked. “Your house. Look!”
    A minute later a half dozed neighbors came to the rescue, then the fire deparent . Thank goodness for my dog Sophie.
