Dorothy is our 93 year-old next door neighbor. She lives alone and still drives. If it wasn’t for her, we wouldn’t be living in our house. Back in 1998, when we bought it, people were offering more than the asking price on houses. Apparently, someone outbid us. But Dorothy put in a good word for us, saying she’d like to live next door to our young family.
So we owe Dorothy a lot.
In Dorothy’s backyard is this beautiful Magnolia tree. It is in full bloom right now and we get a lovely view of it from our dining room (this photo was taken at 2pm today). Melinda invited Dorothy over this afternoon for a cup of tea so she could see her Magnolia as we see it.
