Do Guardian Angels Sit on Porches?

There are two old men that sit out on their house porch across the street from my apartment complex. They sit out there, eat out there, play cards out there, smoke cigarettes out there, and watch everyone’s coming and going from the chairs on their porch. I can only guess their names are Bubba and Jed. Anyway, at first I was a little annoyed by them watching my comings and goings. They watch me leave my apartment, unload the groceries from my car and watch me carry my laundry in and out. However, someone did open my eyes to the benefit of having Bubba and Jed across the street. He said, “Think of them as watching over you…good neighbors who make sure no one suspicious is coming around”. Then I realized he was right. From that moment on I began waving and saying hello to Bubba and Jed. They always wave back. Not with a lot of expression, mind you, but I understand now the importance of having Bubba and Jed living across the street.

    Tara - I finally joined this thing so I could comment on your inherently thought-provoking posts. Basically, you make me smile when I read what you write. My little sister has grown up to be an intelligent little diva! I always wondered when this would finally happen! The studying is truly paying off :)
    I love you more than words can describe, and I miss you much like Paula Abdul.

    As always -
    Your sexy, brilliant and talented older brother
