Can I borrow......

Do you ever ask your neighbors if you can borrow, or use something of theirs. Between me and two of my neighbors, we are always back and forth asking to borrow something or other. Today it was me asking to have two potatoes. The other day it was my neighbor asking me for a can of cream of mushroom soup. lol.

Do you borrow or swap things with your neighbors?

No, I don't even talk with my neighbors. No reason why, just hardly see them.

 No.  The store is so close that I can walk or drive if I'm out of something.  And my parents live 5 minutes away so they can bring stuff over too if needed.  I know my neighbors but I hate asking for favors.

All the time. Behind me is my grandmother, and to my left is her sister...my great aunt. To my right is an empty pasture. 

We borrow stuff all the time. We all have keys to each other's houses for in case we need stuff when we are not home.

 Not really...I used to, before we moved a year ago. My neighbor was a store that my friend runs, and if I needed a special tool in the kitchen, instead of buying it, I'd run over and ask her. If she needed someone to watch the store for a few minutes, she'd come get me...

 Anytime ANYONE breaks down within a mile of our house, they stop here for help. lol. The last time, it was some teenage girl, her fourwheeler wouldn't start, and she needed us to pull it down the road so she could coast start it.
