Our Neighbor Cleans our Front Sidewalk and Driveway!

Today I got a phone call from my friend and neighbor, June. She told me that our neighbor Chuck wanted to know if it was 'okay' for him to shovel our front sidewalk.

To be honest, I felt bad to have him go to all that work, so I was really reluctant. But June told me he had 'his tractor out,' and was ready and willing. June (and her husband Jim) live on our right side, just beyond the alley. Chuck (and his wife and son) live on the other side of June and Jim. Chuck's in the yard business, so I guess that's why he has his own tractor!

Here are some photos of Chuck clearing off our sidewalk. He also plowed our driveway -- even though we're no where near ready to try taking the car out. (Our street is pretty bad still. And according to June who was out today, many of the main streets around here are still bad, too.)

Photo share!

Here comes Chuck, heading from the front of June and Jim's
house over to our house!

Here you can see Jim standing in the street in front of our house,
taking a picture of Chuck and the tractor.

And here I took a photo of Jim, while he was shooting Chuck!

By the way, Jim took a photo of ME, taking a photo of him! (heh)

Yes, we DO have wonderful neighbors!

Okay, I haven't used the 'thankful' (thanks) theme as much as I might have this month -- because I've got such a long, LONG list of things I'm thankful for, all year long.

The NaBloPoMo theme for December is THANKS, so each day this month I'll try to include something I'm thankful for -- or an example of the word 'thanks.'

I'm thankful for:

Our wonderful neighbors!

We've been truly blessed to live in a warm and friendly neighborhood, where we know our neighbors and they know us. How special is that in this day and age?

I've always called this the 'Leave it to Beaver' neighborhood, and I still feel that way. Marilyn and I have good neighbors -- and we try hard to be good neighbors in return.
