Sad to say, hard rubbish collection is over for this year. How lovely it was to see peoples trash exposed on their front lawns for all to see. I did enjoy all the narrow misses I had on the road because I was too busy looking at other peoples junk. I don't know what it is about hard rubbish, but I love it. Although the rubbish is gone, there is still a dead patch of grass from the chairs, scrap wood, mattresses, and numerous blue, shell shaped paddle pools (you all know the ones) that once were.
