My Neighbors...

I love my neighbors. They are such a diverse group of friends and they hang out with me for many different reasons........Some think I make fabulous shaved ice!
Some are the type that like you just because you have a Pool..as long as they bring a towel and their own snacks, I don't mind.
Some however are bullies and only stop by to pick (literally) on others.
Every now and then a really noisy family moves nearby...they usually quiet down once the pizza delivery guy shows up.
A few of my friends treat me like a daycare...because I work out of my home they think they can just leave their kids with me while they shop.....I resent that!!
I have other neighbors who I only see when the promise of free food is made..then they can't visit you enough!
Some make quite a mess and leave without picking up after themselves...guess who has to clean up :-(
Every now and then this one neighbor I have just shows up and acts like she owns the place!
Some neighbors just show up on your front step everyday to say hello and I like that.

But my favorite neighbor is the one who stays in his own yard and waits for me to visit him....he always reminds me to bring the carrots. Here's hoping your neighbors are as interesting as mine....now go knock on their door and introduce yourself!

:)) wonderful post, is that really an eagle or is it a falcon?? That is an amazing variety of wildlife you have (I wish we had chipmunks over here).

PG...I was saying it was a hawk...is that like a falcon? Seconds after I took this photo, he snatched a little bird and left a trail of blood on my deck!!

Fabulous menagerie! I could lend you some of our sheep 'neighbours', we have plenty to go round :)
I loved seeing all the wildlife around your home - so cool!

Hi Janet ...I was going to ask you just what was that hawk staring at...now I know...I loved how you described all of your dear neighbors...we have squirrels that do the exact same thing...lounging and trying to take over...

I'm pretty sure that's a red-tailed hawk...magnificent birds, who unfortunately have quite a taste for little bird feeder birds. I think my favorite picture is the baby cottontail pretending to be a rock. And the horse is lovely, too!

Bee was carrying her new bag at Kelly Ann's today...it looks even greater in person than it does on your site!

bee said...

What a great place we live in, yesterday on my way to work I had to rescue a box turtle that was upside down in the road, uprighted him and away he went. This morning I had to stop and allow to swans to cross the road back to their pond...I love livin the country...and yes I have almost the same neighbors, except add in a few cows, a peacock, fox, bear, deer...hmmm.let me see am I leaving anything out?

It is so not fair that you have so many critters visiting you... we get the occasional Koala, Kookaburra and Lizard, but I wish I had Bunnies, Squirrels and nesting birds.Rabbits are actually illegal to own in Brisbane where I live! Crazy!
