I love the sociology of it.
Round here that's a call ahead because she will tell them all about it
(and then some.) Now find a word of mouth person who speaks to them and
you're ready to put the note in. Then it'll be okay to go in. Or you'll
need to find someone else "local" to go with and you'll probably find
they are receptive to meeting you and all say outloud you could have
just walked up the first time (which won't be true. It's like using Mr
and Mrs to really show you know not to intrude first.)
