Blanche Dubois


Many of my board friends and acquaintances were horrified and outraged by my anonymous neighbor’s tactful approach to saving his property value from plummeting into the depths merely because of my latent white trash tendencies. One suggested that I post a sign in my front yard with the following message, “recently widowed mother seeks help with lawncare-will repay with the same kindness shown to me by my neighbors.” Was it Blanche DuBois who said, “I rely upon the kindness of strangers.”? She wouldn’t have made it in my neighborhood.
