    Some people just aren't very sociable and like to be left alone. It sounds like you have some great neighbors so I wouldn't worry about it.[​IMG]

    Some people just want to be left alone by everyone and not interact with their neighbors at all. Chances are this has nothing to do with you. Just ignore them. Pretend like they are not there. Maybe wave to them as they go by but nothing more than that.

    Ve, I may be guilty of being a neighbor like that. In the last 12 years I've probably walked down to my other neighbors house 6 times... and I hate to say it most of it was to return their dog who had gotten loose to fight mine. We do tend to help each other out, such as whenever I have a plow truck I plow out all the driveways (6 or 7 of them) but I do not socialize or pop in to say Hi. I've had them offer to help and I've done the same. Other than that they live over there, and I live over here. Sort of a solitary existence but I am content most days.

    It used to be the way! People are not as friendly as they used to be. Maybe let them settle in a little more, and they will be friendlier. If you came to my house and offered me eggs, you'd still be here talking over coffee!!!

    Sorry to say that lots of people aren't very friendly to their neighbors. I feel very fortunate that the street I live on there are many of us that are friendly and help each other out. I can easily count on at least 5 that would help out with my chickens or cats.
    Tomorrow night I'm doing the neighborhood Santa thing. Gifts for 9 of my favorite neighbors and their families and pets. And casually friendly with about 9 more.

    Imp- There are some empty houses on the street- just saying. [​IMG]

    He may have a hearing problem and be withdrawn. Or maybe he has a ton of pot plants in the backyard he doesn't want you to see. Just continue to wave and smile. They will come around.

    Ve where are you from? Where is Palmetto?

    What people have said about some people not wanting visitors is true. I am one of those people. Call before you come over and I have a BIG Beware of Dog on the gate. I guess I am not neighborly. Then again all our neighbors are 10 acres apart. I hate walking.
