"Tis the season

Hello neighbors, I just wanted to let you all know, for those of you who didn't watch the channel 5 news or haven't seen their website. That there have been reports of possible burglars in our area. It seems they are knocking on doors claiming they are accepting donations for the food bank. If they get an answer at your house they simply collect any donation you give them for the food bank and leave, if they dont get an answer they try to gain access into the house. Now I know it sounds horrible, but even when I am home many times I do not answer my door. It's not that I am trying to be rude or that I don't want to see all of you. I have had some issues in the past that make me very wary of answering the door, especially if my husband is not home. Besides, any of you who know me, know that it's nearly impossible for me to answer my door without my dogs getting loose and licking said visitor nearly to death. Let's face it, most of the time it's a solicitor wanting to sell us something we don't want. We have all heard that this time of year is when theives target the homes of those who have their presents all under the tree and such. I also, in driving through the neighborhood, have noticed some people leaving their garage doors open. Please be very careful and lets not give these crooks the chance to victimize our neighbors. Everyone needs to watch out for themselves and for your neighbors. I really hope I dont hear of anyone in our area being a victim. I hope you all have a happy and SAFE holiday season.
