Neighbours on Facebook!

Yesterday was weird in lots of different ways....the number of people who rang or just turned up was very impressive.....I had to cancel a visit to a friend in the next village so that I could do justice to what was happening here....
I am dry again....thank you God.
During the morning I got a message on Facebook which puzzled me....
It was from a smiling photograph I didn't recognise but he announced himself as my new next door neighbour!
Having seen my brief statement about the flood in the kitchen he was naturally anxious about his house just across the courtyard from me...on a much lower level.
I went over to look....his house was in prefect dry condition....He was very relieved, having not yet moved in..
So the flood was not a total catastrophe....
He sent me a very nice message of thanks.
Getting on well with neighbours is important in such a small community...
The house, recently sold was owned by someone from Germany and was a holiday let, being empty most of the winter.
There is real joy now....instead of an empty house right through most of the year there is the prospect of good, friendly neighbours...
So the flood was not a catastrophe. Once I get the small problem fixed it should be a one off....
But I am grateful to Facebook....although it has many aspects I don't like...every so often it comes up trumps....and yesterday was one of those!
