The telemarketing began earlier than usual; I don't start screening calls until 4:00 or so. MBNA and the Bank of Canada called before lunch, a courtesy call. What would be courteous is not calling non-clients.

Peter of Absolute Home Creations knocked at the door an hour later offering a "Special Winter Works Promotion" on renovations, citing a government grant for home owners. Too bad I don't own my home, the church does.

Mid-afternoon someone came to the door and asked if my parents were home. No. Then she asked if they played golf. No.

After supper, she came to the house again. Apparently Arkona is so immense and densely populated, it's easy to lose track of where you've already interrupted someone's day.
