Do you remember I wrote about a friend from work coming over a week or so ago? I say friend, but I use that term loosely. He knocked on the door while Chris was at work and then told me that he’d pretty much been hanging around outside our house for a few hours?
It creeped me out. This guy is kind of creepy to begin with, but to hang out around our house and to have gone into our backyard a couple of times when he thought no one was home that day was just plain strange.
Well … I think he might have come back on Tuesday. The reason I think that is because some things were moved around in our backyard and now that Chris is back from visiting his family I know Chris didn’t do it.
On Tuesday, after Chris left to go to Brantford I happened to look out into the garden and I saw that my brother in law had hung towels that they’d used at the beach on the clothes line. I also notices that one of our patio chairs was no longer on the patio, but was under the clothes line. I figured that my brother in law didn’t use the clothes line properly and perhaps had stood on the chair to place the towels on the line. Strange, but whatever.
Well I went out later in the day to retrieve the towels, but I didn’t move the chair. It was still mostly on the lawn, partially on the patio.
On Wednesday I noticed that the chair was on the patio again.
Hmmm … I know I didn’t move it and I’m certain that it was on the lawn after Chris had left to go to Brantford … who the heck moved it? A couple of the other chairs appear to have moved as well.
I know it couldn’t have been my elderly neighbor. The chairs are heavy and I’m certain she wouldn’t have moved one, let alone two or three of them.
All I can figure is that Joey might have come back on Tuesday afternoon or sometime on Wednesday and maybe knocked on our door and when he didn’t get an answer hung out in our garden … again.
I haven’t been feeling well this week and I’ve spent a good portion of my time on the couch or sleeping so it’s more than possible that I missed a knock or two on the door. Actually even if I’d heard a knock it’s unlikely I would have answered the door this week since I’ve been feeling so ill.
Come to think of it our car was missing since Chris was out of town so it’s possible that a visitor might not even have knocked and just assumed no one was home.
We actually know a few people that would take the liberty of sitting in our backyard while we were away from home – mainly because they might have just dropped by from work on their lunch break since our workplace is so close, but two of them are on holiday right now so I’m pretty sure it was Joey again.
I don’t want to call this guy and ask him though. He’d take it as an invite to come over if we called him and I’d like to cut our association with him down as he’s really creepy and once you let him into your house he won’t leave! Even if you tell him to leave! Yeah … he’s a strange one. So I guess this will remain a mystery for now.
