Unless you're on a certain level of interpersonal connectivity with said neighbors....Even then... Hard times hits you and it hits them at the same time and with the same veracity. One day the guy is borrowing your mower. Society go's to hell and he needs to feed his kids. Cull-de-sack' won't mean a thing. Your house is a target to certain people. I pray you the best but I don't think anybody outside the house is going to be on your side.
