One night while tucking Abby into bed she sweetly chimed, "good night! Sleep tight! Don't let the bed bites bug you!" I like her thinking. Sometimes life bites. The trick is to not let it bug you.

Meet Garrick

This photo is not pixelated; it's impressionistic.
We once had a neighbor named Garrick,

a fellow who's quite esoteric.

He's sassy and sly,

and with rolling eye

he leaves us in laughter hysteric!

Garrick recently told me that, after weeks of following my blog, he wondered why I hadn't yet mentioned him. This caused me to wonder also, as Garrick is quite an interesting character.

Garrick was one of the first neighbors on our street we met and became friends with, lo, nearly 11 years ago. He gave us a young pine he wasn't fond of, and it has flourished in our yard. He helped set up our swing set. He helped me do flowers for Lesley's wedding. Garrick is a multi-talented, neighborly neighbor.

He also snuck into our backyard once and shut off our power.

He's just that kind of guy.

Truthfully, Garrick is a bit of a handful, as I'm sure Cari will attest. But we've had lots of fun and laughs with this guy. Thanks for being an awesome neighbor and friend, Garrick!

I'm glad we have met Garrick.
He is not at like Bo Derrick.
We know he is a smart fellow.
Sometimes we like to listen to him bellow.
Now I have to fly.
But we are glad he is such a fine guy.
