One Person's Trash ...


I was walking down our country road a while back, when I noticed a pile of garbage someone had thrown out of their car. Great piles of it. I was angry. I absolutely hate litter! There is no excuse for it.

Then I started looking closer at what these people had dropped off. A huge box of toys, some unused! School supplies, clothing, tools, car parts and more.

Me being the scavenger that I am, ran home to get the wheelbarrow. Toys for my nieces and nephews! Tools for my dad! Trendy jeans for my sister's beautiful daughters! The picture above is just a fraction of what I found that day. Most has already been given away.

I still abhor litter. There is no excuse for it! But if I must pick up someone elses garbage, at least this time it was worth it!!!

I can't stand litter either--the girls told me to tell you THANK YOU. They were so excited over those wonderful jeans. They loved the skirt and floaty lavendar dress, too. (grin)

How cool! ((hugs))
