McCauley: where you can meet new, helpful friends.

The house across the street was for sale for a few days and then the “Sold” sign went up. A nice young couple moved in this past week. The man introduced himself to me mid-week, and said it was their first house. Today, I was outside working in the front yard, when I saw someone was mowing the couple’s lawn, just to help them out. After a few minutes, the new residents came outside and introduced themselves. So they made new friends over a good deed.
