DISGUSTING PICKS FOR THIS JUNKER
MY FAITHFUL COMPANIONSI have a regular routine of picking up the trash on the two roads which border Hawk's Creek. As most of you know I am a junker and very much used to "pickin'" through all sorts of junk and discarded items. I love making a treasure out of someone else's trash. I have been doing this since I was a kid.
I also have been picking up trash along the roads of every place I have ever lived. I don't understand why anyone would throw out trash when there are garbage cans everywhere. What possible joy could anyone get from this disgusting habit?
The two photos here show just one day's "catch". My two companions..Crazy Stella and Ally both loved riding along with me on my old trusty golf cart. They especially loved it when I picked up something particularly nasty. These odorous treasures made them jump with excitement when they saw me putting trash bags, gloves and shovels into the golf cart. On this day there was barely room for these girls to ride.
My precious Ally is no longer with us. She was a beautiful, loving and joy filled friend. Her illness hurt everyone who had the pleasure of seeing her toothy grin. Ms. Crazy Stella was lost in spirit for a long time, but our regular trash trips still make her jump quickly into the passenger seat.
I get really tricked off when I see what has been left for me when I exit my driveway. I make myself a promise that I will stop picking up after these inconsiderate, ridiculous, thoughtless, people. A promise I never keep.
I have picked up everything imaginable over my years as the self imposed Trash Patrol. Never anything of value ( even for this gal who seems to find value in almost everything). Please, instruct your children and anyone riding with you NOT to discard trash on the passing roadways. It gives our beautiful world a face full of blemishes.
