Lady K decided to make today a trash pickup day after I made a comment about the newspapers left in the street of our neighborhood this morning. She asked if we could go out with bags and pick up trash when she got home from school. I said absolutely.
It was even more cool when I picked her up at BASE, she told all of her teachers that she and I were going home to pick up trash. And she was excited about it. It put a grin on her face and mine and off we went.
We walked down one side of the street and back up the other. Sadly, we were able to pick up two full bags of trash that included wet newspapers still in the bags and lots of just odds and ends of schtuff that our neighborhood folks just don't want to take the time to pick up. Oh well, it made for a nice walk for Lady K and I and we cleaned the trash and came to the idea that we should do this every Wednesday. And we hope that we can one day come home with empty bags.
Lady K wants everyone to know that if we throw trash in the street, it's like we don't care about the Earth.
This ends our public service announcement....
