Good Fences?

They say good fences make good neighbors. Now that I've moved to Lubbock, that seems to be the case. I don't know any of our neighbors. Sure, we wave casually now and then, but that's it. I don't know names or anything about these people. I'm not sure how I feel about that.

Back home, yes it's always going to be home, I knew my neighbors well. They were more than neighbors; the were friends that became family. I miss them all so much, it's insane. We spent so much time together, shared holidays and birthdays. We shared countless cups of coffee, crazy amounts of laughter, amazing meals. There was an open door policy in both houses, so life just kind of flowed back and forth across the street. The house across the way from mine was home to people who quite quickly won my heart. I miss Lenore and her family so much. Friends like them don't come along very often.

I was very lucky to have such amazing people in my life. What's your relationship like with your neighbors? Love them or hate them?

I miss you too! It is too quiet now. No one to laugh with. No one to get drunk with either. I need you back. Got why you moved but gosh wish you could come back and get on your feet here. Now you know you can work why now work here?
