Good Fences Make Good Neighbors

At our first home, we built a high fence to keep the deer from feeding on our plants. It was a 6-foot fence and, evidently, not high enough to keep them out.

Once we moved to this home, we installed a fence just along the busy road to keep the bus passengers from making our lawn their temporary camp and     . . . their depository for trash.

To the south side, there was a chain-linked fence that the neighborhood boys would jump over to take a shortcut. But now that they are both driving, we put in something a tad more attractive.

To the east, we replaced an old chicken wire fence that was existing when we bought the property. I wasn’t quite sure it was ours, and our neighbor wasn’t quite certain it was hers!  So we replaced the chicken wire with a  higher, more decorative fence to give both of us privacy in our outdoor showers.

So we didn’t erect our fence to keep out cows or neighbors nor will my apple tree eat the cones under their pines.

Quote of the Day for YOU:                   When we feel love and kindness toward others, it not only makes others feel loved and cared for, but it helps us also to develop inner happiness and peace. ~Dalai Lama
