Description:
I looked down the street, and amazingly, the yellow house had it's annual lights on. Now, if the man there can have JOY, his wife died this summer of cancer, the same day their son was killed on a motorcycle. Well, I say God Bless Them! I have survived my cancer treatments. This neighborhood is planted on some kind of landfill, and about 20 homeowners, have or have died of cancer.

So, Cheers, All, and Thank You for being patient with me. Joey Goat

Okay, most of you know I am not a fan of holidays. Christmas will officially be over in 12 minutes. I went outside to look at the lights, and I realized I am luckier then most.

    i just wanted to thank you for posting this... i read it right after you posted it, right before christmas ended and i was kinda feeling sorry for myself that christmas hadn't turned out the way i wanted... we'd been snowed in for days, hadn't finished shopping yet, couldn't get to my brothers house to open presents, didn't have a tree, etc... then i read what you wrote about your neighbor and it made my stuff seem pretty little compared to his losses... so now we're finally able to celebrate our christmas tomorrow and i'm going to be much more grateful for what we have, than for what we didn't have... i hope you are doing well after your cancer treatments and that you will go into remission... thank you for your post and changing my attitude...

    Maybe if that area is dangerous because of the landfill you should move.
