Adventures in Working the Census

Posted by madjillmom on March 31, 2009

Today was another good day for driving the backroads and checking on addresses. 

Why is it that out in the country (more so than in the city) there are some houses neat as a pin, lawn mowed, hedges trimmed, nothing out of place; then there are the other houses with car carcasses, old washing machines, sofas, garbage piled high so you are worried that your tetanus isn’t current enough?  I think I live in a house somewhere in between these two types.  No washing machines in the yard. 

Then there was a 92 year old woman on the porch of the rundown house she was born in, speaking with just a hint of a german accent. Sweet woman.  Wonder if she will be around for the 2020 census.  Maybe.  Interesting
