We live in a FANTASTIC 'hood.
We just returned from a neighbor's house. They offered up their very COOL kitchen (pots/pans/utensils) to a neighbor to use to prepare food for her sisters baby shower. The neighbors who own the house were not there until much later in the evening, due to a previous engagement. Would you open your home to your (crazy) neighbors when you were not there?
The Husband and I are thankful that we live in a neighborhood where our neighbors trust, if not love us, every day.
