At home we have the best neighbors anyone could hope for. The kind you call when there's an emergency, the kind that let your dog out and bring you soup when you're sick. Most of our neighbors have lived here for over 25 years. Despite the houses being on the small side, none of us would think about moving because we just love the people so much.
In Florida, despite a creepy vacant house next door, we also have great neighbors. Key holders for our house, and beer and wine drinking buddies when we head South. Directly opposite we have the best kept house on the street. I am sure that when we bought the house, they were hoping we would promptly tidy up the front which had a moldy fence, railroad tie garden box and shabby trees. We've been working our way around the jobs that need doing. We had these two awful looking benches in the yard. I was afraid to sit on them given they were rotten and flimsy. Our good neighbor across the street told us he would fix them for us. Today we got his email. "looking forward to your return" it said, along with before and afters of the benches he has remade for us.
He also told us we would need a machete to get rid of the rain forest growing in our gutters. Gutter man promptly booked!
