We have a neighbour who is---how shall I put this tactfully?- particular? He usually puts on Christmas lights and nice decorations on his house. He has a tree in the front yard, maybe 20' tall which he has in the past decorated. This year he seems to have hired 2 young fellows to do this job for him. I've been watching them on and off and they don't seem to be getting much done as they are being watched ( and no doubt told what to do) by the house owner. I really do think these 2 guys wish they's never taken on the job. later... the 2 young men have left having just done some pruning. Will they be back to put up the lights or maybe not!!
On the subject of neighbours we have lost a dear elderly lady in her 93rd year. Right until the end she kept her house, had a garden, and always looked so lovely. She had a string of pearls that she once told me she wore every day, and after that I made a point of looking when we met ( she was a walker too) and yes, she wore her pearls.
Just today I heard of another elderly couple who live quite close by and who are putting their house up for sale and moving to an assisted living home.
The house next door to ours has sold and although it's a cute little house and the former owner put in new kitchen cabinets and painted to fix it up for selling it has been bought by a couple who intend to tear it down and build a very large new house. This is right beside us on the west side so we'll have even more shade than we already do. The neighbourhood sure is changing.
Thanks for coming by and reading my ramblings.
