This is our "no soliciting" sign a friend made for me. I'm hoping it keeps all of those sales people from knocking in he future. It never fails we always get them super early in he morning on Saturday when we are sleeping in or later in the evenings. Inevitably they are usually some strange guy selling windshield replacements (why would I use "some guy" knocking on my door instead of someone in a company truck with a company shirt on and with credentials???), or they are selling upgrades to our internet, or they are from another religion and want me to tell them which of my neighbors speak Spanish. The ones I like to have fun with from time to time are the Jehovas Witnesses. Why? Because they always want to give me their Watch Tower. I was told by another one that they cannot touch The Book of Mormon. So, I use to keep a copy of it by the door. I would tell them I'd take their pamplets if they would all take a copy of The Book of Mormon. They never have yet, so I gave up trying and the books have been moved from beside the door. My oldest daughter had a friend in high school that was a member of that church and she told her they couldn't touch The Book of Mormon because there is power in that book and that's how us Mormons get you. Just by touching not reading. LOL!!!! Eventually this same friend told my oldest daughter that she couldn't be friends with her because she was Mormon too. I was shocked. Our kids would get into trouble with us as their parents if they said something rude like that. We taught her to be respectful of ALL religions. (That's why I moved the books of Mormon from beside the door. I didn't think I was setting a good example). Anyway, this is our sign. It says, "please don't try to sell us your Crazy. We have enough of that here. No Soliciting!". I love it!!!!
I'd also like to drag out my galvenized drink carrier (it's been in the box since I bought it a few years back) and put it between the two chairs on my front porch filled with red white and blue silk flowers I have stashed away, and maybe even a flag or two.
Or maybe I'll just go with all flags of different sizes. I happen to have a few lying around too.
I like these too, but I don't have red striped material stashed. Only red bandana fabric. So I'll stick to what I have.
All in all, the front porch is coming together and I only spent $1.00 on the whole punch from the dollar store this year. Pretty cheap, right??? Everything else was part of something I bought several years ago. I'm a saver when it comes to decorations. I declutter as I go, but I save what I love. By the time I'm done I should only have to hang the flag on the 4th of July and that's it. Yes!!!!
Well, I'm taking my first doses of oral steroids and antibiotics tonight. My hope is to make it to work tomorrow. Wish me luck. Here's hoping for no cough and a high pulse/ox rate. No more low numbers!!! I don't want to end up back at the doctor again. Please no! I don't want to see them and they don't want to see me either. Frankly, I wouldn't blame them. I'd be sick of seeing me too. -smile-smile-
