A Preposterous Pile

Spring clean-up time is upon us. Also known as the annual curbside shopping opportunity. This is the crap that I have deposited on the boulevard in front of my house. One week from today the city-wide picking up shall commence. Until then, come and pick while the picking is good!

Less than two hours later, five of the broken chairs are gone!

Five hours later two bent tomato cages, the broken and leaky hose reel, one broken office chair that was added after the above photo was taken, three light fixtures (one doesn't work), and 2/3 of an artificial Christmas tree have vanished.

I was going to ask about the hose. Even if the hose reel has problems, the hose might just need a washer!

Alas, someone else beat me to it!

Come on, girl! Give me some credit about knowing if it's just a washer needing to be replaced!

They were both beyond repair, the hose was very old and cracked and the reel was sort of being held together by the hose.

Any interest in 1 1/3 artificial trees? :)
