Jr. Tales

Ruchama Schnaidman

Living way out in the middle of nowhere has its perks. I guess. Trees, for one. We’ve got lots of trees, which could be nice for the shade they offer in the summer, and the colorful leaves they fill with in the fall.

Tuesday, December 08, 2015

Besides the way too many trees, here are the neighbors I do have: on the top of my block lives an old Jewish couple (who actually live in Florida for half the year). Then there’s an even older Jewish couple (who my mother bakes cinnamon buns for and who I never see, except for when I’m getting yelled at for riding my bike too fast. Seriously, how can a bike be ridden too fast?). Then comes my house and after us, is an almost old non-Jewish couple, the Johnsons, who don’t have kids and who wouldn’t help me in my boredom, if they did, so that’s that.
