Our Happy Block: Neighbors Transform Lot Into Livable, Sustainable Community Space
The Kindness of Neighbors
Thanks to the Mystery Repair Person
About a month ago, we put a broken wood chair by the side of the road in hopes it would be someone else’s treasure. It was a special chair to us, but it had literally fallen apart. We were pleased to see it disappear within hours and we thought nothing of it.
We were surprised on Christmas to find it sitting on our porch, repaired and in perfect condition. We want to thank whoever did this and commend them on their excellent craftsmanship. The chair has returned to its place in our home and we will remember this kind act daily.
