Quotes of the Day for 3 July 2001 – Neighbors

When I was on vacation last week my next-door neighbors kept an eye on the place, brought in my mail, and opened the garage door on hot afternoons to keep the servers from overheating. Knowing that things at home were under control made it easier to enjoy the time away. Today's quotes are on the subject of Neighbors.
