While I am on the subject of elderly neighbors, don't forget that with winter right around the corner, we may have neighbor's that need help winterizing. If their garden hoses are still connected they may freeze and break pipes. If they use wood heaters, ask them if they have checked their flues. One of my customer's suffered a lot of smoke damage when he discovered too late that birds had nested in his stovepipe. It doesn't take but a few minutes to check out a few things for a neighbor and you may end up with a homemade pie for your trouble!
More next week, until then I am and remain in your service.
