  • Yes. I have lived here almost 7 yrs now. We dont have many neighbors since I live in a farm. Our across the street neighbor passed away over a year ago. The next door neighbor is around 2 acres away and works on the property but I do know him. Mostly though I just know "extended neighbors" since the ones near by all have kids who have grown up.

  • to my left is a horrible drunk who we LOATHE running into. To my right is a preschool teacher who has a 10 and 5 year old (my kids are 5 and 6 1/2) and we have tons of fun together on each others playsets, mowing each others lawns as needed, etc. I don't know a lot of my other neighbors since I am terribly terribly shy

  • I've met my neighbours and am friendly with my neighbours, but am not 'friends' with my neighbours, if that makes any sense. I know them but don't really go out of my way to spend time with them. My kids sometimes play with their kids, but the parents don't always supervise their kids which means unless I want my kids totally unsupervised I have to watch my kids and their kids too... that's not really how I want to spend my weekends so I don't encourage the kids to go over and play unless I'm going to be within viewing distance anyhow.

  • We've lived here 9 years, so yeah, we know most of them - the house across the street has a new couple who we haven't met & don't desire meeting, but other than them we know everyone within 4 blocks pretty much.
