A note we just got about a suspicious “solicitor” reminds us of something that happened here a couple nights ago – read on:
First, the note we just received from Peter in Morgan Junction:
My wife was home tonight, and at around 7:15pm someone pounded on the door, and pulled on the handle several times. The same person spoke with our next-door neighbor, and he said he was selling the Sunday paper, but he said the guy was acting very strangely.
I doubt he’s an over-exuberant salesman – I don’t like that he pulled on our door handle. Don’t know his motivation, but I do think it’s weird.
This jolted us into remembering that two nights ago, somebody showed up on our doorstep and rattled the screen door rather than just knocking. We routinely ignore the door (while making lots of noise so they know people are home) if we’re not expecting someone. They went away after a moment or two and we couldn’t see anything constituting a description.
