Hello Flower Bird.
Frank, just read your post a few pages back about neighbours. I heard a lovely story a few years ago (40?) A man is about to buy a house in an area he doesn't know; he sees an old lady in the front garden next to the prospective purchase and says, 'What are the neighbours like around here, are they allright?'
She replies, 'They are probably the same as where you live now'.
I guess the moral is that unless we are really living next to a sociopath, the way our neighbours are is no more irritating than the way we are.
