For the past several years, I have had the pleasure of living next door to a series of Philadelphia Flyers.

Living next door to a member of the team is great on many different levels.  Our family has become more personally engaged in the success of the team and we have had the opportunity to meet people from all over the world.

But last week the pleasure of living next door to a Flyer was taken to a higher level.  After work one night last week, this lovely young woman with her little girl rang my door bell.  She introduced herself as my new neighbor and handed me a present.  I was completely dumbfounded and not a little more than embarrassed that I hadn’t been the one extending the welcome to the neighborhood.

Isn’t it amazing when someone new can completely surprise you with their graceful attitude toward life?  So welcome to the neighborhood Downie’s.

So gentle readers, take some time to cheer for the Flyer’s this week and Haddonfield’s new residents, the Downie Family.


About Bernadette

I live in the small town of Haddonfield, NJ. I am at an age in my life when I seem to spend time thinking and musing about life. These musings are usually stimulated by my walks through Haddonfield, my reading of books and fellow bloggers, and my interaction with my group of fabulous family and friends.
