Our New Neighbors

So, yesterday, as Darrell is driving me home from work, he says, "We have a new neighbor." and I'm thinking, "Great, another single guy just like the guy who lives downstairs." So I ask him, "Just one?" He replies, "I don't know. I just noticed the lights on. So, we go to meet our new neighbor, and I'm praying it's a couple, not a single guy.
When we knock on the door, a young man answers, and I see he's in a suit, and I think, "he's been at work." Until he moves, and I see his name tag, "Elder Bennett." We have the Elders as neighbors! His companion came out and met us too, and we said we just wanted to meet our new neighbors.
Elder Burnham was so excited, and exclaimed, "You guys are the coolest neighbors ever! We need more neighbors like you!"
It was pretty funny...so instead of 1 single guy....we have two single guys.
Now our fourplex population: Men: 4 - Women: 1

That's funny! I want missionaries for neighbors. Maybe they would go talk to the guys upstairs and tell them to quit smoking their "happy sticks" so I don't have to smell it anymore.

Yay Spitty! Yeah, it's pretty cool having them there. They were out talking to our downstairs neighbor the other day. He's not a member, so it was pretty awesome. miranda, you could solve your problem and move to Utah!! :D

Miranda, I used to have neighbors like that next door (where the dead guy lived) too. I still have neighbors like that in the next complex over.
