“Groovin 46ers!” and Good Neighbors…

Groovin’ 46ers”

We have lots of great neighbors here in Little Whale Cove. Some even bring us cupcakes ‘n muffins for dessert…

Our neighbors come by our home a lot. They all stop for a quick chat. Some even offer help for others when we are in need.

Old and older folks live here in the Cove. We need each other for different things, but mostly kindness and love…

As a thank you, I make driftwood art pieces for my neighbors, especially ones who come by with cupcakes after dinner.

I made “Groovin’ 46ers” for the neighbors who often bring cupcakes as dessert. Delicious, yummy, chocolate peanut butter frosting piled high on the cupcakes…

These particular neighbors were born in 1946, just like me. Very cool! We celebrate each year as “46ers.”

It is a heavenly mix of sweetness, kindness and love in the cupcakes ‘n muffins. It’s just that way here in the Cove, too…

We are good neighbors who care about each other. We are blessed, indeed…

“The Neighborhood” by The Sea…

“The Neighborhood ” by Mindfulness Meditation Creations…

We made this piece, found on our beach at the Cove, for special neighbors we love. They both have been with us for 16 years now, sharing our lives together in this beautiful community by the sea…

We named it “The Neighborhood.” It reflects our little patch of goodness among the trees, wildlife, blooms in the spring, and the creeks leading through the rain forest to the sea…

We saw in this our family and theirs together in harmony and love. Our good and loving neighbors in Little Whale Cove are like that each and everyday of the year, and twice on Sunday, even in the rain.

When times are good we smile and laugh. When times aren’t so good, we still smile and hug each other, and say to each other, “it’s gonna be okay.”

That’s what good and loving neighbors do. We care about each other in the good times and the sometimes rough times. We always smile and laugh when see each other no matter what. “It’s gonna be okay,” we say…

Little Whale Cove is “The Neighborhood” that loves and cares for each other. We live in harmony in this ‘Garden of Eden” by the sea…

“Rocko Raccoon and The Rockettes” of Little Whale Cove…

The now infamous “Rock Raccoon” formerly, of Little Whale Cove. https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Raccoon

https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Rockettes

Rock Raccoon ‘n his clan of Raccoon Rockettes from Radio City retired from Broadway after the election 2016. They got involved in politics, and they split up.

Rock Raccoon and his like minded clan retired to Little Whale Cove in the summer of 2017. Radio City fired them for making illegal contributions to various nefarious political campaigns not to be mentioned here. You know what I mean?

Rock Raccoon and his gang of bad girls ‘n boys rolled into Little Whale Cove like bandits in the night. He came into my corner of the neighborhood where, friend and neighbor, Ricky Raccoon and his family made their home, back then.

Ricky Raccoon and his family were always good neighbors. They traveled back in forth between my neighbor to the south, a tad north to my neighbors, who love our Raccoon neighbors too…

Ricky Raccoon, mom ‘n the kids used the water drainage pipes to get around the immediate neighborhood, especially in bad weather. The kids are very sweet, while under mom ‘n pops watchful eyes that will stare you down…

Raccoon’s are beautiful neighbors when your neighborhood has covenants and HOA fees. As a community we protect all wildlife and living things. We especially love our Raccoon families, who share their love and kindness with all of us, all year long, especially during the Holidays…

We were all good neighbors, kind and loving, until Rock Raccoon and the Rockettes showed themselves as not so nice, loving and kind folks to hang with. We found out soon enough about that, to our disappointment…

Ricky Raccoon was caught off guard by Rock Raccoon and the Rockettes, a bunch of bullies, they were. So, he packed up all his family’s stuff, grabbed mom and the kids and moved down the street on Morning Walk.

Moving in with Randy Raccoon ‘n family, was tough at first for Ricky Raccoon. But, the two families were close, so got along pretty good, mostly…

In the meantime, Rock Raccoon and the Rockettes took over my once happy place with Ricky Raccoon, mom ‘n the kids. Not a good thing for us. We soon found out, but not soon enough…

Things with Rock and his dancing ‘n dodgin’ sleazy ‘n sneaky criminals soon revealed themselves. Every Saturday night we always heard sort of thumpin’ and poundin’ under the floor in the master bedroom. The noise, kinda like a party with dancing and rock ‘n roll, usually stopped about the time we went to bed.

One night while we were watchin’ the news from Canada, we heard a very loud kitty screech and growel like cats do when they are pissed at something or someone. Simba gets that way when Raccoon’s invade his space. Cats are like that, you know. Don’t mess with them…

To make a long story short, as some folks say sometimes, I called the the Lincoln County Sheriff’s Office Animal Control. The good Sheriff and his ‘A Team’ of animal lovers took Rocky Raccoon and his gang of bullies away to the comfort of our excellent County Animal Shelter.

Rock Raccoon and the Rockettes, from Radio City, were put on a plane back to New York City the next day. The whole community was grateful to the good Sheriff for sending this Raccoon bunch back home where they belong. We never heard hide nor hair from them after that.

Ricky Raccoon, mom ‘n the kids moved back home with us. They are really good, kind and loving neighbors, mostly. Sometimes they are annoying when they try to open the screen door to say hello in the middle of the night.

The neighborhood lived in peace and harmony again after that. We never heard what happened to Rocky Raccoon and his Rockettes once back home. Maybe that’s a good thing.

We love our Raccoon neighbors, they are mostly kind ‘n loving friends’n neighbors we love so…
