Today at lunchtime I swung by my house to leave money in my mailbox for my lawn care person, who is going to mow this afternoon. When I got in my car to go back to work and turned on the radio, my lawncare person's rather fabulous new single was playing on the radio.

Knoxville is weird that way -- we have all these amazing musicians living amongst us and even mowing our lawns.

Who is this musical lawn care person? I've decided to hire someone to mow my lawn, too.

Why, Mic Harrison, of course.

Is your neighborhood that crime free you can state for the public record on the third Friday of the month you leave cash in your mailbox for the lawn guy?

You know, that's a very good point. I hadn't really thought of that.

On the other hand, I am not listed in the phone book and unless you know where I live, I think you might have a hard time figuring it out, but again, I'll give that some thought...

Sorry to impose my neurotic safety concerns on you. It’s a native New Yorker thing.
I live on the 20th floor of a high rise with a doorman, and cameras in the building. So take what I say with a grain of salt if I'm off the mark with my safety concern. I don’t know if I’m feeling particularly paranoid this week because of the frenzy whipped up about potential suicide bombing in NYC subways. It’s insane and unnecessary they’re conducting bag searches on the subways. They tell us we have the right to refuse to be searched and can leave the station. So if I were a suicide bomber I’d then leave and go on a crowed bus or another station where they are not searching the passengers {duh}. Therefore, has anyone in our government thought a suicide bomber would voluntarily allow the police to search their bag and be caught? What the fuck is the point of stirring up this new frenzy of orange alert.

Therefore, as a native New Yorker, I desperately try not to blow the general personal safety issue thing out of proportion, but shit happens. Read the book the "Gift of fear" by Gavin deBecker a necessary read for all women and children. Even in your Knoxville neighborhood having a bit more caution could be helpful, or just make you paranoid as me ;- )

Not to further infect you with my NY paranoia about safety but you’re a single mother who lives in a ground level home whose blog tells a lot of stuff about your family and home. Photos of that adorable house are on this blog. Its fun to see your home and know about your garden etc… however, I think it would not be that difficult for a criminal or crazy person to find you in a small city like Knoxville. Especially since you already know there are some, seriously strange angry pissed off "fans" that comment on your blog.

If it were my property I was protecting I would remove the photos of the front of your house, and never leave money in the mailbox. Have a nice day : )
