Yes...the front yard is connected to the back yard as neither is very large. The fence is brick and iron (not chainlink) and enhances the front yard. It was built with the house in 1939 and was there when we bought it.

I already said that it isn't common to see fences in Atlanta front yards, although they do exist. I happen to love mine...and my dogs do too. It keeps solicitors and trick-or-treaters away.

oh, a brick/iron fence. That makes more sense. I've seen plenty of that. I was picturing a chain link fence and found it odd.

Odd...and very tacky.

The first time I visited NYC I expected people to be rude since that seems to be the reputation. They were NOT! Quite friendly and helpful. I recall being pleasantly surprised.

Good to hear Most people on CD judge us as rude, when in fact they've never been here to experience how friendly/helpful/nice we are

That's how I felt about LA when I went there. People were really chill and willing to give directions and advice on what to do.

I'm glad to hear that! I live in Jersey but work in New York. Since I'm a block from the World Trade Center construction site and near Wall Street, I am asked for directions all the time. People should never hesitate to ask questions in the city--we are used to it and even people who live in the city have to ask where something is sometimes.

I went to DC and I was shocked at all Black people who looked like they had good jobs and education. Even more than me. I had to wonder if it is cause of Obama and Affirmative Action.
Here in Rochester on a few of the Blacks are really educated and most work in factories or get welfare so I want used to seeing so many that looked like they were well to do.

I was shocked when I visited Dallas, TX, when I was around 22 and found that most of the women my age in the apartment complex where we were visiting were already on their second marriages and had two or three kids. My friend and I had saved money from our jobs and flew to Texas to visit a friend of hers who used to live upstate New York.

I also remember traveling to some rodeo about 50 miles away and being shocked at the endless flat land that stretched in every direction with very few trees. I got this panicky feeling for a minute, like the opposite of claustrophobia.

That would be agoraphobia.
