Disappearing Neighbors

My neighbors moved and didn’t bother to tell anyone they were planning on it.  I feel like Dorothy in The Wizard of Oz, “People disappear so quickly around here.” 

In our cul-de-sac we try to watch out for each other.  Ann and her husband used to be friendly then they had family issues and she ceased most all communication with everyone.  I saw the Uhaul on Friday and watched her husband load it and drive away.   Surprisingly, she did answer my text.  They moved to McGill, Nevada about 4 hours away and bought a house.  This gives me hope for an affordable place in the future…but not there.  Being alone, I don’t think I would like a small town.  Anyway, our cul-de-sac is now at 4 families with 3 empty places.  It’s quiet and a bit sad. 

I’m not sure how to end this except not all your neighbors are your friends, or you never really know people the way you think. There is some lesson here somewhere but my Monday brain isn’t getting it.

  1. I think the virus has caused some big changes in the direction people are going, going forward. Good for them in getting a house. Frankly I no longer associate with any of my neighbors for various reasons and would love to move elsewhere in the valley. Too much stupid here. Quiet is a good thing these days, I relish it, living alone as we both do, helps! The days of attending big rock band concerts have passed…


  2. I have had some experience with what you wrote about neighbors. Some have moved out quietly some have not. In a few weeks I will be moving from the house and I am not sure how it will go.

    PS…forwarded an email that I think you might be interested in. :). Unfortunately I won’t be able to attend because that will be in the middle of the move.
