Beautiful day in the neighborhood

Typical days in our neighborhood consist of construction noises and plenty of trucks across the street as our new neighbor's soon to be home becomes complete. They are scheduled to move in this weekend, although their original date was in February.

Further up our road, more new home construction sounds fill the air and usually wake us early in the morning since daylight comes earlier now.

We are sure filled with gratitude since the well drilling machinery left our area two weeks ago, at least until it returns with another new home's beginning in progress.

We didn't appreciate the well drilling pounding because it echoed so loudly and began to chase our birdies away. The high decibel pitch resounded throughout our home with big boom-boom pinging bouncing from wall to wall. Try concentrating on anything with that in your head day to day. Hooey!

The past week has seen an explosion of leaves on all of our trees surrounding our home, and it seems we are now cocooned into our building envelope and tucked away quite nicely from the road.

Remember Mr. Rogers
? We loved him here, especially his 1600 episode opening song celebratory chorus - "It's a beautiful day in the neighborhood" (... won't you be, please won't you neighbor - sorry got carried away...LOL) If you'd like to listen to the tune for nostalgia sake, here is the LINK to do so.

We remember you this day MR. ROGERS as we embark on the threshold of obtaining yet another new neighbor in our own neighborhood this weekend...

It's a beautiful day in this neighborhood,
A beautiful day for a neighbor.
Would you be mine?
Could you be mine?...

It's a neighborly day in this beauty wood,
A neighborly day for a beauty.
Would you be mine?
Could you be mine?...

I've always wanted to have a neighbor just like you.
I've always wanted to live in a neighborhood with you.

So, let's make the most of this beautiful day.
Since we're together we might as well say:
Would you be mine?
Could you be mine?
Won't you be my neighbor?
Won't you please,
Won't you please?
Please won't you be my neighbor?
