The other day we found a cell phone in the driveway. I turned it on, went to contacts, found one labeled “Mom” and called it. I left a message explaining and said give me a call.

She called, we spent a day exchanging texts & voicemails and she stopped by tonight to pick it up. She drove to my house and knocked on my front door. I gave her the phone and she burst out laughing and said “you know, I live right there!” and pointed to a house exactly 35 feet from mine. So she drove out of her driveway, across one width of one small front yard and pulled up to my house.  OOPS!

She was very nice, and a good laugh was had by all. 🙂

  1. hahahaha – that’s privacy!!!

  2. kind of odd, how we don’t know our neighbors, anymore.well, now you do!  society has changed, hasn’t it?

  3. odd, but I SO get that…as do the neighbors…

  4. We don’t know any of our neighbors but people move to this neighborhood because they want to be anonymous.  That was a nice thing to do.

  5. Happy New Year to my longest subscriber, and dear online friend. 

  6. @roscoes_farm – Thanks Chris. I hope you have a wonderful New Years Eve and I really hope that it is a wonderful upcoming year for you. Oh, and that you don’t have to change your name this year.

  7. That is funny! Love that you thought to look for “mom” on the cell. my daughter lost hers once, years ago,Someone thought like you and I got a call from the neighborhood bar, as it was found in their drveway. She still swears she has no idea how it got there. ha.
