Siouxland neighbors stopping by

30 Mar

The Siouxland area is part of a state, Iowa, that is known as being Midwestern friendly. Strangers, neighbors, it doesn’t matter, people generally say hello and ask about their day. Although at times some particular neighbors might not respond in the normal way. Beginning last summer when I left a bowl of water out for my cats in the backyard on extremely hot days, one particular neighbor would also stop by for a drink, and continues to, most days, as long as the water is there. This was even true during the winter months, sometimes chipping away at the ice that formed in the bowl.
