Strict Wife Of The ’70s Manages The Household - Chapter 174
She thought about the amount of money she took from the old lady. Someone must have been jealous, otherwise, no one would do such a stupid thing to ransack the place.
At this time, although the houses along the road had little to no fences or didn’t really bother to lock even their doors, the villagers needn’t really worry since they were too poor to be robbed anyways. One would usually not be able to get a single dollar from a house, much less anything that was more valuable.
Still, Lin Lan didn’t dare to be careless. When she got off work in the afternoon, she went directly to the Security Director.
The Security Director belonged to a militia company under the commun. There was always one in each village, along with several militiamen. When harvesting crops, he was responsible for patrolling and watching the greens to make sure that no one stole any food.
Hearing Lin Lan say that someone was stepping into private property with the intent to steal, the Security Director didn’t dare to be careless, “These days, the commune members go to work during the day and there is no one in the village. Actually, they flock around occasionally as well. But it wouldn’t do any good to be careless at night. Since the members of the commune are already lethargic by nighttime, it wouldn’t be productive for them to snooze on the night patrols. Hence, it would be nice if you could arrange a separate troop to patrol the village..”
With the arrangement of the Security Director, the patrols in the village became stricter and Lin Lan found that everything was normal again.
However, she didn’t dare to be careless as she shared her doubts to the children, especially to Dawang and Erwang. She wanted them to pay a bit more attention to things.
She also asked others to let her know if anyone had a dog to give out because she wanted it.
Having a puppy to guard the house was better than having none at all.
It’s just that at this time, every household was not rich. Since there wasn’t enough food to go around already, there was simply no chance of them rearing dogs, so her request was not exactly very doable either. However, there would be dogs that were generally kept on the Brigade or the Production Team. This was true especially for the warehouse keeper, who would rear guard dogs to keep watch.
Soon, the Brigade Leader helped to bring a puppy from a neighbouring village. It was an ordinary Chinese pastoral dog, commonly known as a local dog.
It stared at them with its damp, jet black eyes as if it was about to cry. It was fluffy and adorable. Its yelps were also high pitched and full of energy, making it especially cute.
Xiaowang and Maisui liked it the most. It’s just that it was slightly on the smaller side, so it wasn’t really suited to be a guard dog.
Seeing that they liked puppies so much, Lin Lan thinks it was good to have a dog. They all say that letting children have pets will help them cultivate their ability to love and nurture empathy.
Then, she received a letter from Han Qingsong. Han Qingyun, who sent her the letter, also read its contents for her. There was only one short sentence that stated: will be back soon, so don’t worry. It lacked any form of literary beauty to it as it went straight to the point.
The letter was written several days ago. Lin Lan estimated that he would probably arrive in the coming few days.
In July, when the weather was good, the first wave of autumn grains was harvested. After harvesting sorghum, soybeans and mung beans, the Production Team begins to distribute the grains.
They first calculated the total amount of the grains and then calculated the work points of each family before dividing the grain according to the work points.
