I know 11 of our surrounding neighbors. Some are even on the next block. I met them while outside, in the summer, working-playing in the yard. It's nice to talk over the fence, see what kinds of plants or flowers are growing for them. It's also nice that they know our daily routine enough, that if something doesn't seem right, they will check it out, to make sure nothing is amiss.

I live in a subdivision of 2 roads. Quite a few of my neighbors have moved over thte years. My neighbor next door, I am friends with and we email quite often. She and my other neighbor both work full time in a school setting. I see more of them come summer when its warm enough to venture out

This is a sad fact in today's communities. People seem not to know each other well even amongst close neighbors. Too much individualism in society. In the old days, people know each other very well and sometimes even their secrets are not hidden. When faced with a problem, one can always run and ask for help. Today neighbors seem to be complete strangers to each other. They hardly trust each other anymore.
