Aunt Norie’s Sewing Room
Our world today is a “far cry” from what it was, so very few years ago, seems like yesterday.
Children come into this world so happy, so trusting. Children were safe anywhere. Now the first thing a parent has to teach a child is to be afraid of strangers. Afraid of people, so sad really. Must be the hardest thing that very small child has to learn.
This tip floating around on the Internet is well worth passing on: If your car is one of the newer ones, that is and if your keys work from a distance that is. Perhaps you hear a noise outside at night, someone trying to get in your house perhaps. Just press the panic button, the horn button. The alarm will be set off, and the horn will continue to sound until you shut it off (or the car battery dies).
So when you come home at night and you might normally hang your keys up somewhere, keep them on you, beside the bed, etc., instead. Also remember to carry your keys in your hand as you walk toward your car in the parking lot.
