This past week our mailperson delivered the entire street’s mail one house off. I got my western neighbor’s mail and my eastern neighbor received mine.
When I finished canning my peach harvest for the year, I heard a knock at the door. I was delighted to see my neighbor to the east with my mail in her hand. I invited her in for a chat. They moved in 2 1/2 years ago, just as Covid hit. They both work at home, seldom go outside, and live behind a tall fence. This makes neighboring rather difficult.
We enjoyed a delightful visit. I learned they went to the filming of The Chosen this summer in Texas for the Feeding of the 5,000 scene. She told me about 12,000 people showed up for that filming. They had to bring their own costumes and it lasted three days. She thinks this episode will possibly appear sometime before Christmas. I’ll be looking for their faces in the crowds!
I think it’s about time for me to get busy and have a neighborhood gathering so the new folks can meet the old folks and become a cohesive neighborhood again.
Do you know your neighbors?
