Yesterday the neighbor boy two doors down turned 5, so his parents threw him a little birthday
party—just a small, low-key gathering of friends and family to wish him well.
Ha! Really it was a total blowout, a superhero extravaganza. I must say that the things a few of us neighbors agreed to do for this party would be much too embarrassing for me to mention, if I had any shame left at all. But I don’t, so here’s a picture of three middle-aged Super Neighbors flying down the makeshift zip line across the backyard.
The kids were awed. The babies were terrified. The adults were doubled over with laughter. So it goes.
