One of my neighbors on my right side is crazy. The other I've known since I was 4, and I get a long with.

I had a LARGE tree taken out of my yard once. A tree that my neighbor WANTED in my yard.(Had no clue) When they went to take it down, she called the police because one of their vehicles was on the curb.

A month or so later lightening hit a tree in her back yard splitting it in two. Half of it hit her back porch overhang. Knocking it down.

I call it Karma.

I agree. Karma does happen. Unexplainable but true.

All my neighbors are nice and friendly.

I'm friendly with all of my neighbors. The closest one is just over a mile away, I am sure that has a lot to do with it!

We wouldn't be where we find ourselves right now if it wasn't for a little neighbourly help/assistance!
