Fiorella's cup runneth over because she has wonderful neighbors. The most recent additions to her honor roll are Mike and Kathy Brown, who live on the other side of the dry creek. Last Christmas, they brought over a four-pack of mouth-watering cupcakes. And earlier this year, they came over again to be sure Husband and Fio still wanted to split the cost of a property-line fence with them.
We invited them in, of course, and the four of us talked about ourselves and fences and deer and trees and firewood. Mike, who knows how to take down dead trees, volunteered to share firewood with us, and this weekend we took him up on it. An hour later, he and Kathy drove a flatbed loaded with cut wood down our driveway and unloaded it for us.
We are blessed. And warm.
