Good Signs Make Good Neighbors?

They do as far as I’m concerned.

Yard Sign

I saw this one in a neighbor’s yard on the way out this morning. One of the things that’s make it a little easier to recover from last week has been to come home and be reminded how much support we have. We always knew we had good friends and good people in our lives. But it’s nice to be reminded.

  2. Hey Terrance!

    My CIVIL MARRIAGE IS A CIVIL RIGHT yardsign has survived a couple of months of battering by the mean streets of East Baltimore. I wish I could say it’s been battered by rain, but we haven’t been so lucky. My neighbors (a mix of races, socio-economic levels, ethnic communities, and orientations) have been tacitly supportive. I have even had the occasion to educate some of them on the issue (and, hopefully, thereby generate some supportive letters to Annapolis). The only holdout has been Alex, my cat, who from time to time feels compelled to knock down the second sign I have posted inside my living-room window. But I think he’s coming round….
