Called to see an old lady this morning and she did not answer. Fortunately she was not awake instead of not alive. I am glad I waited and tried a second time. I nearly let myself in -and that might have given her a heart attack if I had woken her and she had thought I was an intruder.
Unlike the fool of a young man who called at our door this afternoon. He tried to insist he was not a canvasser. I don't think he understands the meaning of the word. He tried to argue and I eventually threatened him with a prosecution for trespass and told him to run-not-walk off the property. I don't know what it is but I find strange young men with smarmy smiles unnerving.
