It might interest these folks to know there are less than a dozen homes iv the whole county, wher we have marked our call report with a discourtesy sign. We don' care about how we are treated usually, but we find that the neighbors stay away from discourteous people. The neighborhood activities, Klamp forgot to jot down the details.
