How Good Are Your Neighbours
Probably a strange title but I feel that I should bring this to the forum. Wife and I went down to Adelaide on Monday planning to stay with Daughter and family over Xmas. Yesterday, weather forecasters predicted a scorcher for today. 43 degrees (thats about 110-115 to you lot over there) with strong to gale force winds. We decided to return today (Wednesday) and salvage plants etc with a bit of a drink. Prior to us leaving on the Monday we cleaned up all the apricots that had fallen from a tree, and I noticed that there was a considerable amount left on the tree. This was another job on our return.
As we drove up the driveway my wife made the observation that no fruit was on the apricot tree or on the ground. After investigation I found that our next door neighbour took it upon himself to do the job..Hes a quiet unasuming batchelor who wouldnt say boo to a goose, but the point I make is that at this time of the year he certainly brings home the meaning of Xmas, being ever so small. To my neighbour I say thank you sir, you are a legend. Anyone else got a simialar story? Regards.............AL
