Default 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

Good fences make great neighbors and 140 lb. shephards dont hurt either. I wonder what a bunch of apricots stuck in his tailpipe would smell like?

Sorry Scott

The brown one is a dog and the white one is a horse...
But i'm sure you know that when you need to pickup the land mines in the back yard..with a back hole..

Only had one guy jump in my back yard, police heli was chasing him. He went to the hospital, an got 12 stitches in one arm, and the police were happy, all the work was done for them. Nobody takes my apricots.

Al,

He was not (i hope) stealing the fruit? From reading the replies to your post most are ASSuming that the apricots were stolen.

OK, sorry if I didnt explain myself. The apricots on our tree had certainly gone past the "use by" date.The birds had got most, and the rest had fallen due to over ripeness. My neighbour had done a real big favour. Regards.......AL

Hello Al, It does happen that good neighbors are in your own back yard.I am glad that you have one. I have had a few good ones, and they still ask it they can help. The other ones are in Heaven. I have a bad one also, so i see both sides. The good ones outweigh the bad ones.
