"FOR WHAT DO WE LIVE, BUT TO MAKE SPORT FOR OUR NEIGHBORS, AND LAUGH AT THEM IN OUR TURN?"
Husband and wife, Scott and Janice, celebrated both of their 50th birthdays this week in Babylon. Neighbors Janet and George couldn't be there and sent a comic Elvis to sing to them at their "Prom-themed" 50th Birthday celebration.
Their neighborhood in Copiague is very, VERY close-knit. They not only look out for each other, but they tend to get in each other's way, as well......often!
Whoever said that "good fences make good neighbors" and "love your neighbor, but don't pull down your hedge," obviously didn't know the gang on Harbor Court.
Not only is there always a party going on, but they also take vacations together. In Las Vegas, Scott fell asleep by the pool, only to wake up surrounded by empty bottles of beer his neighbors surreptitiously placed around him.
Practical jokes seem to be a required skill to belong to this group. During Christmas one year, Scott and Janice brought their two TV sets for their daughters over to Janet and George's place for safe-keeping. They ended up putting their own tags on the gifts, so when Scott and Janice's daughters unwrapped the TVs from Santa, it didn't say it was from Santa Claus; no, it had Janet and George's names on it.
Scott enjoys water sports and has a lot of water-related "toys" on his property. One neighbor went so far as to put a huge sign on Scott's property that said, "Water Sports Rentals by Scott"! Scott got even by posting a sign on the neighbor's property that said "For Rent". They got quite a number of unexpected visitors that weekend!
