I learned by watching my Mom. never asked questions just sat and watched. She always had an automatic and I watched here every move and learned that the break was always the left pedal and only needed to know what P and D meant on the gears until later. I guess I was between the age of 13-15, yes I lived in the city so we did not have tractor to drive or pasture to go dare devil on at the age of 8...lol! So I learned between 13-15 and by 16 I took her car (Mercury Cougar) to the corner store very slowly down a steep hill while she was a sleep. Only to get in trouble cause my younger siblings told on me. Anyway I got my license when I turned 18 and bought my own rust bucket. Never drove a stick, I have always thought it was way too much to be going while you drove but lots of people enjoy a stick so I say to each their own.

New to the community, I think it means exactly what every has said on here. Can we all be neighbors y'all sound like the perfect neighbors We would enjoy. All though I like my space so we would have to live out in the country....lol! @Mj_206 wrote: Last month, we asked what being neighborly means to our community members. There were many great responses in this thread, but I also received several private messages with responses. Here are some of the factors towards being neighborly according to our community. @Spearhead13 says: "Being respectful, knowledgeable and engaged. But also being aware of your neighborhood heartbeat and how you help it maintain a steady rhythm." @jaydixon0409 said: " Being neighborly to me is looking out for one another, it is lending a helping hand when someone is in need. My neighbors and I really do not interact much but when we see each other we do tend to speak and acknowledge each other presence. I had one neighbor come and tell me that I had left my car door open and it was actually a shocker to me because I had just moved in. By him doing this it showed me that he was watching out for me and being a good neighbor." @Dmanderx defines being neighborly as: "Being neighborly to me means having a mutual respect for each other. Saying hello when you see one another. Keeping an eye out for each other's property." @Jasonhawks1111 offers up his opinion as well: "Acting on a daily basis as if your community begins with you." @TUrbs stated: "Being Neighborly is being friendly towards your neighbors, giving a helping hand when needed. Giving a smile. Talking and watching out for one another's property. Respecting them and treat them the way I want to be treated." @SS2018 brings a little humor into the mix: "🤔 Neighborly to me is when you have a dog don't let him/her bark all times of the night to the point it becomes a nuisance. It also means mind your own business don't be too much in the mix. Yes, it's ok to be cordial without being all buddy-buddy! Also, respect people's property & keep your grass cut people. Don't you hate it when everybody else's lawn is nice and cut but you have that one neighbor who's house look like a jungle!" @LP123 reminds us of the golden rule: " To me, it means to treat others how you would like to be treated." Lastly, @BigJ13 said: " Being neighborly means being respectful: if everyone respects one another enough not to impinge on the property, space, and feelings of everyone else, then we all would be truly 100% free. On socializing: don't react to other's opinions, and be forgiving." You still have time to tell us what being neighborly means to you! Share in the comments below Have A Great Day!
