The Real Housewife of Claycord – Every Thursday at 2pm on Claycord.com
This week, I want to talk about strangers giving candy to children….
I was shopping with the kids at Safeway in Clayton on Monday when a man in his late 70’s approached my kids with two pieces of candy.
We were in the bakery area and when the man saw us. The way he approached us made me wonder if I knew the man, because he came up and acted as if we were old friends. He proceeded to reach into his pocket and offered my children each a starburst. I said “no thank you”, but he wouldn’t take “no” for an answer.
He kept saying “kids are made of sugar so they need sugar”. After another very convincing “no”, he walked away with his candy still in his hand.
An employee told me the man is innocent and just likes children.
He can like children, that’s fine, but when a parent says “no”, that doesn’t mean keep trying!
I’m sure the man is a nice guy who has no bad intentions, but these days you have to be careful about who talks to your kids. Just look at the Megan’s Law database, it’s filled with old men when I’m sure all seem like nice guys.
What’s your opinion on this? What would you do if this man tried to give candy to your children? Have you had any contact with this man?
A few things I saw around Claycord this week:
- The old Keenan-Heinz Company building on East Street in Concord will soon be a Doggy Daycare (as well as a groomer, boarder, boutique, etc.). After doing a little research, I found their website. Can’t wait for them to open!
- I saw a Claycord bumper sticker on three cars this week! It’s always fun to see those around town!

- If you cut yourself, and it won’t stop bleeding, pour a heap of pepper on the cut, it does not burn, and the bleeding will stop immediately.
That’s it for this week.
I hope you all have a wonderful week, see you next Thursday at 2pm!
It’s time for me to go make a pie! What kind of pie, you ask? I’ll tell you!
This week, it’s a Cherry Pie!
