Neighbours

Trying to get Bella to sit still for a photo next to my Brisbane Lions sign and wearing a yellow scarf was almost impossible but I wanted to send it to her master, my one-eyed Carlton supporter Elijah, who is holidaying in Scotland at the moment. We’re a family of jokers. When Elijah was in his teens we lived on a small farmlet and had great neighbours just over the fence. They were keen Richmond fans and often went to matches. One time when Carlton defeated Richmond, I made a tiny Carlton jumper and hat and we dressed their Richmond garden gnome in it before they arrived home. Lots of good-natured teasing and they very best of neighbours 🙂

When my children were very young, we live in town with very close neighbours, some very nice, others . . . not so nice 😦

Now Rod and I live on another farmlet but our nearest neighbours are much further away and we rarely see them.

Good neighbours, bad neighbours and the eccentric and quirky . . . they all make for great stories and poems 🙂
