Yes. Thanks Sue55. I've never been good with door knocking... But I might have to do it.

Take a cake and wear a big smile, suggest the lady of the house puts the kettle on. Get to talking about the rats AFTER you've covered the kids, school, work, family drama and gardens......... Then it's much easier to kind of bring in the "by the way, ..........."
Who knows, ...... Can't hurt? :whist

Ha ha! Good advice. But we do have 6 properties neighbouring our big block. It would take all day... Maybe several..

All my hair would drop out.

Not ruling it out, mind you. Just saying.

Deep breaths...

:oomm

Good point, Chickenboots.........
I guess you need to do a risk/benefit analysis too. :read
6 neighbours, 6 cakes, 6 x (potentially) many hours
Possible benefits: lots of chatting, perhaps even laughing, improved relations, sharing/solving rodent problem :peece
Risks: all that sugar and sitting around could lead to diabetes, weight gain, missed deadlines, and jitters :nuts from drinking too much caffeine (let's at least hope the coffee isn't the yuck stuff) :shock:
Hair loss might be a relatively minor concern! :rofl:


(Sorry. Couldn't resist...)
