Neighborly

Last time we had snow some guy I don't know came along and did my front sidewalk and the end of my driveway (for some weird reason if it's really windy the entire middle of my driveway blows clear--this is weird because the middle of my driveway is entirely boxed in by house/trees.  Anyway...). 

He has done my neighbor's driveway and sidewalk several times this winter.  Today, my neighbor told me that he doesn't know this guy either.  One day he stopped by and said to my neighbor (who is in his 80s), 'I see you and your wife out working on your yard all the time.  I don't want you to have to shovel your driveway all winter.  I'll do it for you.'

And he does.

I don't need him to come shovel snow for me, but if he could stop by and rake my yard, I'd be very indebted.
I'll see what I can do. I'm sure it would be within his abilities. Because he is clearly Super Neighbor Man.
Awww, that's a really sweet story.
It's especially nice as I'm pretty sure my neighbor used to be the neighborhood guy who did stuff like this when he was younger.
Whatevs. Stuff like that happens all the time in LA.

*whistles*
It could happen!
Someone once moved a chair and a potted plant off my patio in the dead of night. I didn't want him to but at least it meant I didn't have to get rid of them. You know, when I was done with them. Which I wasn't yet. But I'm sure I would have been someday.

They were clearly anticipating a future need.
