I make people fat and happy!
I know but don't socalize with my neighbors, I only have a few as I live on a mountain, not high, but a mountain nonetheless. One neighbor dresses up like The Blessed Mother, claims she was sent here by her, the purpose of which remains a mystery. Another is a builder who owns a Catholic bookstore in Emmitsburg, few people on earth more boring, except the Engineer and his wife who live at the end of our lane. The house on our right at the end of our lane is vacant as it's been foreclosed, nice place though!
Growing up we knew everyone on our street and most of the people on the next street, they included the owner of the Washington Star, the head of National Geographic, a Rabbi, a Washington Post Reporter, the owner of a chain of upscale Women's clothing, David Brinkley, B.Francis Saul's family, he of the Forbes 400 fame, some guy who sang Opra all day long, loudly, we'd make fun of him, he'd yell nasty things at us...life was good!
