Speaking of wildlife, one of the neighbor ladies told me that she saw a wolf, on her way to work.

Good for you, hosting the neighbors! There are lots of us who 'should' do that, but don't. Me, for example. How great that you and your neighbors can exchange books! It's like having your own private library!


Sounds like some well-read elk who knew when to disappear. Thats funny!


Sounds like you guys are set for snacks for new years eve and new years day! Yummy!

A wolf is a whole lot bigger than a coyote, it would be difficult to mistake one for the other. Hope he/she went back north, even by a few miles, too.

What a great idea, Dovie, and a tridition that should be practiced more often in neighborhoods these days. We did that a lot back home on the farm, and sometimes, it included "sewing bees" like quilting, knitting and crocheting. I'm afraid it is a dying trend these days, and that is sad. Communities could benefit a lot from any sort of get-together for whatever occasion. Drawing close together and learning a little about each family, sharing thoughts and ideas, even some schedules helps to keep the community safe, secure, and with a sense of "being".


The idea that you and one neighbor read the same author and will be exchanging books to read is a great means of interacting with each other. I'm glad to hear that some folks are willing to be a part of such interaction in their community. Neighbors being neighborly is very important, and beneficial to those involved.
