We're downsizing our furniture...trying to be a little bit more minimalist.
We've sold a couch and took a rocker recliner to my mother, but we still had another rocker recliner we didn't need, so Wild Bill put it on Craigslist...
A nice sounding lady emailed him last night asking to see the chair. She was having trouble with her texting so had to communicate via email. So there was some back and forth emails this morning, which ended in her calling Wild Bill for our address.
When he gave her the address...she couldn't believe it. In 30 seconds she walked across the street and around to our front door!
"uhhhhh...Hello Neighbor that we haven't met yet!"
She came in to see the chair and sat in it for 2 hours while we discovered how much we all had in common. Like me she grew up in California, married a native Texan, and moved to Texas to be near his family. They've lived across the street from us for 6 months! Crazy strange!
It turns out she and her first husband lived for years in the same neighborhood Bill did years ago in Vacaville CA. Small world!
I stood in our garage on the side of our house (we live on a corner) and took this picture of our husbands moving the rocker into her house with her "supervising" them.
So if you're looking for new friends, my suggestion is sell something on Craigslist. If you don't have anything to sell, maybe just walk across the street and knock on an unknown neighbor's door.
Thanks for dropping by!
