Yesterday, I was taking in the last of the groceries at my Mother's house as she went back out to shut the trunk and garage door. I heard a man's voice and hers replying. As our neighbors tend to leave us alone, I thought it passing strange. I poked my head out to see two men (White and Hispanic) in an older compact SUV in the drive and heard them ask if she needed any roofing or yard work to be done. As I'm not used to people canvassing neighborhoods from door to door soliciting yard work, I thought I'd interject myself into da sitchyaition. I called loudly from the door that we didn't need any and thanked them for their time in no uncertain terms. The white guy gave me god's blessings and got back into the SUV but it still had the hair on the back of my neck raised. It's just not 'normal', I thought, to solicit work that way. I suspect they saw a white-haired old lady and thought they might have found easy prey. I called FCSO and reported the incident although I made sure not to alledge any suspicion of criminal conduct and I couldn't really describe the SUV (aside from color) or its occupants. I merely asked that if they had a deputy free he might take a slow drive through the neighborhood. Funny thing, right before that I had someone on facebook tell me how much safer we'd be if people weren't allowed to have firearms. I must say that holding one out of sight behind my back certainly didn't make me feel any Less safe.
