Frost’s “Mending Wall” may tell us that “good fences make good neighbors”, but I am not so sure. I have a pretty shoddy fence, but my neighbors are all fine people. Just this afternoon, my neighbors Trish and Andy helped me move some very heavy furniture. When she saw the truck in my driveway she said, “Oh no! You’re not moving, are you?” They mail a Christmas card every year, too, even though our houses are only fifty feet apart. They’ve given nice gifts, like plants and hummingbird feeders. The decrepit fence between our houses may keep their cows on their side, and my elves on mine, but neither of us is too worried about it.
