If you haven't already established a "buddy" system with your neighbors, do it today! Say hello... exchange phone numbers...
when you go away for an extended amount of time, let at least one
of them know when you will be gone and when you will return, and
if anyone is expected to be at your home while you are away.
Look out for each other... it's the neighborly thing to do!
