My grandmother lives alone. Her driveway is 1/4 mile long and where she lives has a lot of trees. She is forever being surprised by someone ringing the doorbell because she doesn’t know they’re coming up her drive. More often than not, it’s her pastor coming to visit, or her best friend coming over for coffee. But the UPS man has startled her a couple of times, and once an aggressive solicitor caught her gardening in her front yard. If she had known he was heading up the drive she would have gone inside and avoided the incident.
I bought her an Orignal Bell kit from MiltonsBells.com. Now whenever someone drives into her driveway, she is alerted and knows to keep an eye out for them. Never again will she be surprised or scared to have someone walk up on her unaware.
