on the street where you live-what is it like?
We all live in so many parts of the world, I am curious what your street is like, how is it different? Give us an idea!
Mine is in a residential area with nice houses-ours is one of the few 1 story homes. 3 houses down and across the street is a big greenbelt area. Trees (nice sized but never massive, since we are right over a layer of limestone, most trees cannot grow massive unless they get a lucky pocket of deep dirt.) We have a walking trail with mile markers-not paved, just mulch/bark. A shallow creek runs. At night-especially full moon ones-we can hear the coyotes howling-makes the hair stand up! Chilling. They are sometimes called prairie wolves. Two ran right in front of my car one day & I thought at first they were mangy,skinny German Shepherd's-they do not run the same, so finally it dawned on me! Our neighbors are nice and we chat, but aren't close friends with any.The houses are on small lots-not huge front yards. Maybe 10-20 feet apart.An alley runs behind were we all drive into garages.We have squirrels, rabbits and possums with an occasional big snake that comes out of the greenbelt after rains.In summer, we have as the song says, sunny days we think will never end! When we get snow it is cause for big excitement-we are all out in it. Kid just want a snowman so bad! Sometimes they get a medium one-not often. Day and night, people with their dogs walk past going to the greenbelt.My favorite family: a father and 2 children walking two very large dogs, who are elderly & pad slowly , tails wagging once a minute. They send my big dog(who watches at the front window) into hysterics. As if they are going to lumber in and take his toys any minute! They never even glance his way, but he remains ever hopeful!
