How long does a neighbor have to live in our neighborhood before we stop calling him new neighbor. He has been here since before Thanksgiving. You might say why don't you be friendly and introduce your self? I did encourage John to go over and welcome him to the neighborhood. John did go and they chatted on the front porch for a few minutes. All John knows he is from up north and this is his first time in Texas. When a for sale sign goes up you always kind of wonder if the new neighbors will have mean kids since we don't have fences in this neighborhood or will they have loud parties. We didn't have to worry about this guy. No pets, no kids, just a cute little sports car. We see him come home from work when we are watching The Millionaire. He drives into the garage, closes the doors and blinds and we never catch a glimpse until the next day. The house was advertised as nicely landscaped but I don't think he has noticed. The little red flags where they did the surveying are still across the yard and its been, what going on the third month? Today he had his kitchen window open when we came home. I told John I think new neighbor thinks its summer. It was too cool to me. I wonder what he will think when our hot dry summer does get here. Well I think he is going to be a good neighbor. No mean kids, no barking dogs, no loud parties, no mowing over into my yard the way the old old neighbor did. I do wish he would wave or nod once in a while. Guess you've got to learn to be a small town yokel.
