    I was mowing this house today and I noticed that the house diagonally from were I was sold last week and the people moved in. I see the home owner out side, so I walk over and introduce myself and hand the guy my business card. We talked for a minunte and I shook his hand and walked away. I called the owner of the house I was cutting and told the him that I introduced myself to his neighbor. He says to me do you know who that was? I said no that is such and such from the New England Patriots. I ended up looking up his number and sure enough bingo that was the guy. I was dumb founded, no I will not say were I was or who the Patriots players name for his privacy.

    It's called privacy, ever hear of it? Last thing I want is somebody knocking at my door all of the time beacuse they know I have some coin. I'm letting the guy live his lifewnormally, I'm sure he already has people bugging him and I'm not going to be one of them

    Whats the big deal about telling us his name, your not telling us where he lives.
