[6/6] My Pledge
Current mood: neighborly
Category: neighborly Life

[This is the last part!  Should you want to take a few minutes to catch up on this series, go back here,
myspace blogs
And remember - people are already stepping up and answering the call.  Those near Greenville can hang out on Friday night,
myspace events ]

My Pledge:
I will always have beer and soda in the fridge, have snacks in the cupboard, and keep the liquor shelf happy.  My home and/or me will be available whenever possible on twenty minutes notice to any of the people reading this*.  I'm going to get all my board games out of the attic, everything from Risk and Trivial Pursuit to Shots-and-Ladders.  I will bring out the buckets of Lego.  I will have paper and drawing tools available.  I will entertain anyone, age 2 and up.  My hiking boots and back pack are always ready to go, too.

Generally, I have no problem keeping myself entertained, and I have my own projects going all the time – but none of it is on a schedule.  If I "drop everything" to make a social event happen, it's because my priorities are clear, and they include YOU.

While writing this series, I can't help but think of all those friends and friends-of-friends of mine that live just across the highway from my own neighborhood.  There's a couple dozen people I could name in this crew who all live within a mile radius of each other.  Some get out of the house when they can, and find a regular bar; others get out just every-other-weekend due to children – and wind up at another bar.  Others rarely venture beyond the safety of their "compound".  My message to them (i.e. YOU) is this: get off that bar stool and pull up a chair at your neighbor's dinette set.  Cut the ham and eat, or cut the cards and deal!

* [I do have some idea of my readership!  "As Charles Foster Kane who owns eighty-two thousand, six hundred and thirty-four shares of public transit - you see, I do have a general idea of my holdings - I sympathize with you. Charles Foster Kane is a scoundrel. His paper should be run out of town. A committee should be formed to boycott him. You may, if you can form such a committee, put me down for a contribution of one thousand dollars".]

After all, what does any man really want, but love – on his own terms?

Yeah, I'm hoping for more than memories of a lost childhood on my deathbed, too.

You really want us all out more? Then get to work on some sort of tele-transportation system!! It's usually not the being out that stops me but the having to do the going that convinces me there's no place like home;D

Relative to some others, you're the Lara Croft of social adventurers!

See you Friday. :-P
