Memorial Day in my Jensen Community

With Memorial Day behind us it brings to the mind how lucky I am to be living free, happy and healthy.  Sharing these feelings with my Jensen Community neighbors makes it all the more special.  One of the things I enjoy most about where I live is the fact that my neighbors come from all over the country with different experiences and backgrounds, yet we all seem to share similar values.  It’s part of why I feel so at home at Jensen’s—truly a sought after and satisfying lifestyle.

Just yesterday I was washing my prized 1969 Ford Mustang hard top on the driveway and my neighbor “Smitty” dropped in.  He was just finishing his exercise walking routine and decided to come over and help me finish cleaning the tires.  As we were polishing the chrome we chatted about old times, cars and growing up in the Northeast.  We agreed, what we missed after leaving our childhood homes to enter the work force was the sense of neighborhood.  That special place you call home where friendships are made and great experiences created which keep life interesting, safer and more rewarding.  We both knew what we were saying:  “I’m glad I am here with you and other people like you because you improve my life.”  I worked hard to be here and now I am rewarding myself every day!

Later on this week a few of us from the neighborhood are going into town to check out the local car show and catch a movie.  I really enjoy taking my baby out for a drive when she is all polished up!  I look forward to these outings because they are simple and fun!  We will probably stop at the local ice cream stand on the way back home, but no-way is Smitty getting into my car with a full cone of ice cream!  Besides, he likes chocolate and my favorite is vanilla.
