National Good Neighbor Day

The idea of Neighborhood Watch probably could be credited to Gladys Kravitz.  Gladys was the curious neighbor on the television sitcom Bewitched, first aired in 1964 .  We owe a special “Thank You” to all the Kravitz’s in our neighborhoods!  I am very thankful for the Kravitz couple in our subdivision as the garage side of our home is in their direct  view.  Dwight noticed their “kravitzing” about six months ago.  We figure they must have outside motion detectors that alert them to outdoor movement, because it is rare not to see those blinds lifting or opening when we go out through our garage. 

I like the idea that they are watching out for our well being and that of the neighborhood.   We know our Mrs. Kravitz and she is a very nice lady although we do not know our Mr. Kravitz.  One of the neighbors that has always followed Wylie’s Council Meetings has said that Mr. Kravitz  presented Certificates of Appreciation to Mayor Eric Hogue, City Manager Mindy Manson, and Councilman Nathan Scott back in January 2013.  Now that is certainly a nice gesture and they should be commended for that kind recognition.  And I want them to know that I am grateful for I believe they are good neighbors and helping keep our neighborhood safe.

I also want to thank Wylie Police and Wylie Fire Rescue for all they do in the community.  We look forward to seeing all our good neighbors out in the neighborhood and at National Night Out, October 1st at Olde City Park 5pm-8pm!  See you there!
