(This shows the type of society we live in now.)
After living in our house for four years we were moving out of state. My husband had backed the truck up to our garage door so we could start loading all of the boxes.
Just then one of our neighbors came walking across the lawn, carrying a plate full of muffins. "Isn't that thoughtful," my husband said to me. "They must have realized we packed our kitchen stuff."
The neighbor stuck out his hand and boomed, "Welcome to the neighborhood!"
