Ol' Spot just died

Someone once said that a neighbor is "a person who can get to your house in less than one minute and take two hours to get back home." When it comes to being neighborly, I heard a very amusing story about a group of country neighbors who wanted to get together on a regular basis and socialize. As a result, about 10 couples formed a "dinner" club and agreed to meet for dinner at a different neighbor's house each month. Of course the lady of the house was to prepare the meal. When it came time for Jimmy and Susie Brown to have the dinner at their house, like most women, Susie wanted to outdo all the others and prepare a meal that was the best that any of them had ever "lapped a lip over."
