  • We have an old man across the road. Hes our only neighbor for a few acres. Hes ok. We take him dinner, cakes, pies etc and make chit chat. Some days hes ok other days hes cranky.

  • I see my neighbors everyday through the windows or in passing. If I don't see them or notice that they've moved the cars around then we check.

  • I've tried, but my neighbors don't seem to want to know anybody. It's so weird. I grew up in a neighborhood where everyone knew everyone. I miss that.

  • No, we do not. Only if there is a major hurricane with damage.

  • Yes, we connect regularly. My neighbor called last night to have my husband take down her suitcase cuz she's going out of town; she's 80 something. We take her garbage out, we call her all the time to check - sadly, husband passed away two years ago, and they have no child. We also check our neigbors to the right and across the street. They are all fossils. In fact, we attended our neighbor's 50th wedding anniversary last week. It was sooooo touching to see them reminisce to Frank Sinatra's song and see them dance swing!

  • Nope, because she's an annoying bitch and I could care less to be friends with her. I cannot wait to move away from her.

  • I don't really know my neighbors, but I know they aren't elderly or have babies. My sister lives down the road though. She's just fine =)

  • I'm only involved with 2 of my many neighbors. And that is because the gal across the street came and greeted me when we were new, with her son, who is a month older than my daughter. So we're friends. And I'm friends with her friend down the street. I say hi to all the neighbors and try to be friendly, but really only socialize with those two. I'm thankful my neighbor took the initiative to make us friends, cause IDK if I would have.
