Only a gourmet neighbour beats a good one
It's true that you can find good neighbours in both city and country. But that leaves me no less thankful for the ones that I've had the good fortune to find in this country town.
For it can make all the difference to your daily life to have neither nosy neighbours nor nasty ones, let alone those who just plain get on your nerves living nearby.
Because while it may be enjoyable escapism to watch a soap opera named after them, in reality you've hit a home-run if you have neighbours that are nice enough to not turn your life into one.
