I was in the shop working when I heard a strange sound out on the patio that I thought was a loud cat. I walk out the side door and what do I see but a little kid who saw me and ran up the sidewalk and into the bushes behind the little garage. We have new neighbors and that must have been their kid. I thought it was funny and walked into the house. When I came out later and walked towards the shop I could hear a little boy crying hysterically so I figured his parents punished him for going over into the neighbors yard. But as I got closer to the little garage I could see he was in there throwing a tantrum. So I walked towards him and asked if he was ok. But I must have scared him even more so he crawled under a table in the back. I walked in and tried to convince him it was ok but he wouldn't stop crying and screaming. Just when I was wondering what I was going to do his dad came over and got his son out. He apologized and said it was a weird way to meet his new neighbors. He knew about our Halloween setup and I told him he has years to get his son used to us.
What a strange day that turned out to be.
