Here is the fiction to go with the photo
Thinking of Judy (word count: 100)
It’s been five years since my neighbor, Judy, died.
This photo hangs on my refrigerator, near grandchildren photos and a special card from ’02.
Most of us took Judy for granted.
And you would’ve too –
– been annoyed by her decorations and noise.
That moving Christmas sleigh, egg-dropping Easter rabbit, and ever-changing Halloween gags.
This “manikin in the cage” was her last fanfare before she croaked.
At the time, it really provoked.
Felt like a sinister joke.
But now I see –
Judy had refreshing energy.
She wasn’t messing up the neighborhood’s vibe.
She was keeping us all alive.

Oh and just for fun, had to share these “notes from neighbors” (from Google images)
