While working at one of my rental units this morning hooking up a pressure washer to wash down the house, who should stroll up behind me but three dubbies passing out invitations to the district convention. The oldest, bout 60ish asked me if I lived here or was "just working". I told him "neither, I own the place"! So he and a 40ish male along with what looked like a ten year old went to the door of the back apartment and left a flyer with my 83 yr old renter. As the latter two were on the door step, the oldest one came back to me and offered an invite to which I respectfully declined. At that point I couldn't help myself and launched into my disdain for an organization that harbored peodophiles. Then I asked him point blank, was he one! You should have seen how white he turned. He couldn't get away as the other two were still talking to my renter. I asked him if there were any peodophiles in Astoria, to which he sputtered a feeble "no"! I asked how would I or that young boy know whether or not either one of you "men" could be trusted since the witnesses protect the identity of those that are. He turned tail and headed out without waiting for the other two just to get away from my questions. As the younger male and his youthful companion came by me I bid them farewell with a "have a nice day" loud enough for all to hear.
Made my day!
