Follow your instincts..................

Sometime ago I wrote about my neighbor Menopause Maude.  Well, at the time I thought she was 84 years old but yesterday I found out she is actually 90.  Well for sometime now I have been keeping an eye on her house and I watch make sure I see her every day.  Yesterday when I came home I didn't see her on her porch.  I watched the rest of the evening and still never saw her.  I commented to Ron that maybe I should go check on her but got interested in something on tv and never did.  This morning she was outside and called me over to tell me she had been sick all night and to please call her son.  I immediately called Darrell and he took it from there.  Now what I'm feeling bad about is that I didn't follow my gut instinct and check on her last night.  She's such a character that you never know if she's exaggerating her condition or not but I figure at 90 years of age it really doesn't matter.   I just need to keep an eye out for her.

Mrs. P's mother lived to be 106 years of age so Mrs. P will probably outlive me.

So glad she was OK. I have neighbors that check on me also which is a comfort. That you do at all says a lot about you.

It is nice to live in a neighborhood where neighbors know each other and watch out for each other. Keep up the good work.

She's lucky to have you as a neighbor. Maybe the next time you should act on your instinct.
