Last evening, I looked out of the window and saw an ambulance parked half way across my frontage and half way across next door. Now, the sight of an ambulance meant someone was ill or dying. Next door neighbours are almost as old as me (not quite) and the man of the house suffers with heart problems. Naturally, I thought the ambulance was there for him.
I rushed outside and questioned the ambulance driver, starting with… Is it serious? The driver said No and at that point next door neighbour shot out and asked me if I was all right. Behind her was her husband who was in fits of laughter. Apparently the ambulance driver and his mate were just having a rest!
This silly incident is proof positive that neighbours care about each other. What a joy!
