Day 1723: Welcome to the neighborhood

I felt very welcomed to our new neighborhood when I found this yesterday:


Here‘s what our welcoming neighbors want us to enjoy:


Coffee  and Danish!  What could be more welcoming than that?  Thanks, neighbors!

As I traveled around several neighborhoods yesterday, I took other photos which I hope you welcome, neighbor.
























Welcome to my neighborhood, which includes stress relief techniques AND great cooking by my boyfriend Michael.

Welcome to the YouTube neighborhood, which offers these songs (here, here,  here, and here):

Thanks to all the neighbors who helped me create today’s post and to you — of course! — for being my neighbor here.

  1. Welcome, welcome, welcome, the whole world is your neighbourhood, welcome, welcome, welcome, from my neighbourhood…

  2. I think this means you and Michael may be checking out a nearby Trader Joe’s in the new neighborhood, Ann. My dear wife Karen and I think the one we got in Syracuse a couple of years ago was an interesting addition to the supermarket world.

  3. What a nice welcome gift!

  4. In many previous posts you’ve shared pictures of places where you’ve walked. Those are a good reminder that neighborhoods are places best explored on foot.

  6. Your signs today remind me of the Tesla (rock band) song Signs:
    “Signs, signs, everywhere there’s signs…”
    But the best sign of all if your welcome to the neighborhood. It’s a good feeling!

  7. That was such a wonderful fun post! Welcome and Thank You!

  8. I love all the signs and the calendar quotes. Really fun. I’ll have to remember some …. 🙂 My train of thought derails often too without survivors. 🙂

  9. I love welcoming people.

    It’s very satisfying feeling than get comforted by someone. the same thing happen with one of my colleagues as he was new in town. he needed some help and searching for help he took the help form Onata and coincidentally the help he needed was found in his own building which. the app helped him lot, he also earned money by just singing up
