I have a Nosy Neighbor!


At least that’s what Patty M calls herself!

We chatted across the alley today as she raked leaves that kept blowing into my yard and I pulled the remnants of last years flowers.

She’s such a character…

We chatted about another neighbor who is more reserved and that’s when Patty said:  “She’s not like me – I’m just plain nosy!”

Patty’s husband is quite a character too…

As we painted the house a few years ago, George would sit there in his chair and “supervise”.

I think I made him extremely nervous as I was perched up on our ladder to reach the eaves.  Never so nervous that he couldn’t give me a hard time though!

This is what life’s all about…good neighbors, good friends, a little gentle razzing across the alley and more than a few laughs.

“Write it on your heart that every day is the best day of the year.”

Have a blessed day!

They’re all my favorite in different ways…

But this post is about my daughter Samantha. Read more
