RAVE To the very considerate neighbor who picked up my daughter’s wallet and returned it to her after she accidentally dropped it on the sidewalk on her way to a friend’s house to prepare for her high-school prom. Losing it could have ruined her evening. Thank you so much for your wonderful act of kindness!

RANT To people who walk their dogs and use neighborhood lawns like dog parks. I love my Lab but never allow her on anyone’s lawn. Why do people think it’s OK with homeowners?
