Scavenger Law Breaker
I broke the law. I scavenged at the landfill. I couldn't help myself.
Last weekend, I was tossing our garbage into the community pile, when I spotted this sitting up amongst the rubbish.
Above it hung a white sign: No Scavenging. County Ordinance 4.32 blah, blah, blah.
I looked around. I could use that massive jar/bottle thingie. No one else was there. Even the prisoner gals who sort the recyclables were off on Saturday ... not that they would mind much. They know me ... some are my exstudents.
So, I swooped it up and laid it in the JEEP. No alarms went off as I drove away. I breathed a sigh of relief.
The book in the photo is just for a size reference. It's volume must be about 4 or 5 gallons. I don't know what this jar/bottle thingie held in it's past life (pickled eggs, pigs feet, pickles?), but it's going to hold fish in it's future.
I just got a new aquarium.
Call it recycling.
Just don't call the garbage police.
