Meeting the neighbors

Ilene has a great post on how we're meeting the neighbors. It's definitely been getting more Mayberry-like in our corner of Van Nuys, partially because our kid is so darned cute ... also because of the rash of daytime robberies. This led to a Neighborhood Watch meeting with somewhere between 70 and 100 attendees who listened to our senior lead officer talk about what the LAPD is doing to stop the robberies and who/what to look out for.

Whatever the reason, when it comes to strolling the neighborhood, there's a lot more stopping, chatting, dog-petting, ball playing, flower picking and baked-goods-exchanging going on lately.

And skipping. We do lots of skipping.

We'll never be as ridickalus as Christopher Kimball though. He propels himself forward in some time machine that civilization forgot to write those columns. We're so damned Western.

That's a great attendance for a watch meeting!
