How well do you know the people next door? Are they really what they seem?
Sally Owens wanted only to be the girl next door, to have a loving relationship
and children of her own.
Sadly, that was not to be her path in life.
She was not unhappy with the family she did share her life with.
She truly loved them dearly and would not want that part of her life to change.
Let’s face it- if you never got to associate with anyone but your immediate family,
you’d feel your life was missing something, wouldn’t you?
Who lives in the house next to you, or down the block?
The one with the beautiful flowers and the porch to die for?
Do you stop and say hello when you see someone working in the yard?
If the person in the yard looked something like this
I could see your hesitation but take away the green hue to her skin
and if you did not want her living next door I am sure your husband or son would not mind.
Who knows who will grow up to be a real witch?
Sweet little Mary who worked with the blind children
could change her name to Vivian.

Ahh, you say. I have nothing to worry about.
The family next to me is so normal.
Well, no, I have never stopped over and introduced myself,
and sometimes I see they dress up their cat,
not that I ever look into their windows.
The neighbors on the other side have the cutest little girl.
Come to think of it, I have not seen their dogs in a while.
Her husband is a bit uptight, though. Maybe he is the one who’s not human?

When you have the opportunity this week, please take a moment to say a kind word to your neighbors.
You may find a new friend or make a connection that turns out to be magical.
A HUGE THANK YOU to the wonderful and beautiful Miss Anna of Frosted Petunias for bringing us all together to celebrate this enchanting movie.
