talking to the squirrels - and waiting to see who else turns up. When a neighbour appears on the other side of the fence, we wave. "How you doin'?" "Just fine, thanks. How are you?" - and our place in the social fabric is confirmed. If one of us is having a rough time, the others keep an eye on him or her. We care about each other.
It's a lovely neighbourhood, isn't it?
