Snow Rake for Eggs Barter

February 6th, 2011 at 04:04 pm

My neighbors in back asked me if they could borrow my snow rake. Seems they're hard to find and completely sold out in the stores.

Every day this week the TV news has shown multiple examples of roofs caving in, mostly commercial buildings, old barns and apartment or condo buildings with flat or nearly flat roofs.

I said sure, and she said they'd give me more eggs in exchange. That's great with me!

There's something that just tickles me about neighbors sharing resources and trading stuff that avoids the need to go out and spend money. And I love having friendly neighbors. Seems so quaint and old-fashioned, but it shouldn't be.

Perhaps today I'll try to clear my front walkway and stairs, buried in snow for weeks now. It's already 32 and climbing.

    I hope it's not quaint and old fashioned! We have great neighbors, too, and share a lot.

    Cool! We just came in from yet another swipe at our sidewalks. We also have been doing it for our absent neighbor for 15 winters. A new renter moved in on the other side, and we lent him a straight shovel to chip with. Wish he had chickens....

    I'd love to be able to do that.

    I think that is what being a true neighbor is about. Very nice!
