Out of the Blue

This morning Hudson the wonder dog alerted us to the presence of some people in the yard, though she wasn't in full-on alert mode: This was more like "your friends who are allowed in the yard are here." This is because it was the third visit in a short span from the tree guys who were unexpectedly hauling more debris out of our yard. They explained that they were told their Friday job called to complain they had not done an adequate clean-up, and they assumed it was us because their other job was just a light trimming. I assured them that they had done a bang-up job, and we had lodged no complaints. Today I'll call their boss and tell them how great they were, just to set the record straight.

Blue couldn't finish typing, because as he got to that sentence he realized the Tree guys were actually home-invaders and they silenced him.

Seriously though, without reading the rest of the post... that is one of the things I'd be wary off. You hire some guys to do something: tree stuff, roof stuff, security-system stuff, etc. then they know the layout of your home and perhaps your schedule.

Having them "stop by" unannounced would give me pause to wonder what they were doing there.
