i walk my dogs by rita’s almost every night. and rita is usually outside, so we wave and yell pleasantries over our barking dogs.

i love the eclectic touches in her yard. the tea cups hanging from the fence. the shoes nailed to the telephone pole that serve as planters. the car seat:


i especially love her messages on her blackboard. this was yesterday’s message:


you are a person not a job. some days it’s hard to remember that.

    Man, I love quirky neighbors. In my area, we’re lucky just to have a neighbor who mows their lawn (pot-calling-kettle: we’re included in the non-landscaped category).

    This is so engaging! Wish our quirky neighbors were like this instead of the quirky neighbor with the dog that poops in our yard, or the quirky neighbors who abandoned their house and left all of their junk sitting in the front yard. What a great message on the chalkboard, might have to get that one inked on my forearm!
