My First Garbage Picking Expedition

Okay, so, this is blog post number 3 in as many days. If that isn't enough to make you feel an attack of the vapors coming, this will. I garbage picked. Yup, I did. I have never, ever done that before. However, I was walking home from dropping the kids off at school yesterday. It was garbage day and there was this thing that kind of looked like really small parallel bars, on wheels. I need a rack to hang the clothing for my craft fair booth.....this thing is about 3 feet long, about a foot wide and the 2 bars are probably boob height on me, so less than 4 feet from the ground. Perfect to hang clothing for children..at their level.

So, here I am walking over 1/2 mile home, pushing this contraption. Normally, I see no one on my way home. Not yesterday! Three different people were doing yardwork, 2people were walking (and dogs DO NOT like this thing coming at them) and then, as I went to cross the last road to my street, 2 of the other preschool moms went jogging by. I was stopped to let cars go, of course they saw me....they just looked and laughed, as did I.

We shall see how this works...if it doesn't work, well, I'll just put it at the end of my driveway next Wednesday. Who knows where it will end up next!
