It was easier to get to know neighbors on the west coast. those open doors invited neighbors.
My most memorable neighbor was Nellie, in National City. 96 and spry. We watched African Queen together one afternoon. and both of us swooned for Bogey. She had more energy than I had at a third her age.
La Fontana had many crazy neighbors. Polly became a good friend, Sam.....
