Lending a Helping Hand

Oh the dilemmas one faces living in a small town in Nebraska.  Like this one.  Just what is the right course of action when you drive by your neighbors yard and find him out digging a hole? A really, really big hole.

Do you just pass on by and pretend you didn't see anything? Do you stop to lend a helping hand?  What to do, what to do...

The Mister and I didn't have to think twice.  He grabbed the beer and I grabbed the camera and we both got a lawn chair and we did what any thoughtful, caring neighbor would do.
We watched... and we threw in our two cents worth about how the job was coming along... and we shared a beer and some friendship.

Oh, and then the Mister rolled up his sleeves and took his turn with the business end of the shovel... I kept watching.

I should have learned the lesson of being the camera person a long time ago. Kinda like riding in the middle seat of a pickup truck. You don't have to drive, and you don't have to get the gate.  In this case, you don't have to pick up a shovel.

So remember, if you happen to notice your neighbor in need... be sure to stop.  It makes for a good time.

Thanks for stopping by. The coffee is always on.
