I’ve always liked the idea of having a good rapport with one’s next door neighbors. Trouble is, in my current locale I seem to be surrounded by a strange assortment of sociopaths, hermits, and general nutjobs . We have plenty of friends in the neighborhood that occasionally stop by for dinner, go with us to see fireworks, reciprocally borrow tools/lawn furniture/cooking materials, or attend the occasional back yard bbq, but our immediate neighbors do not seem at all interested in establishing any contact with us (huh, maybe they don't like the shade of red we painted the cinderblocks our 1973 Olds Cutlas is sitting on?).
How about the rest of you, does anyone enjoy that special Barney & Betty Rubble/Fred & Wilma Flintstone relationship with their next door neighbors? What level of interaction do you have with them?
