We love our neighborhood. It is in the middle of town and yet it is quiet and secluded. We moved here 24 years ago and not much has changed. Lately there have been some new couples move into the area. So Luana and I thought it would be a good idea to have a Labor Day ice cream get together. We invited everyone in the area and had about 40 people show up. We thought it would be fun to have everyone write on their nametags how long they have lived here. To our surprise, we were the youngsters. We had couples that have been here for 26, 29, 30, 32, 35, 39 and 40 years. Talk about a stable neighborhood. In a day when there is so much mobility, we feel blessed to know all of our neighbors and look out for each other.
