Trash Day

I woke up to the alarm on Tuesday. I threw on my shorts, t-shirt and crocs. I gathered up the last of the trash and hauled the can out to the road. It was lightly sprinkling.

Back inside, I watched the news until 10:00 a.m. Then I shaved, showered and got dressed in my sorts and t-shirt (a new pair).

I ate the last of the sloppy joes for lunch.

I was doing a little light housekeeping when the phone rang. It was Amanda. She said the restaurant was dead (she had made a total of $13.00 in tips all day) so she was leaving early She wondered if she could stop by. I said sure.

So, she did. We played porch monkeys for about a half hour. Then she had to leave to pick up Keldon.

BTW, for the last three weeks they had picked up my trash by 7:30 a.m. Today it was still sitting there until about 4:30 p.m.

I went out back and checked the vegetable garden. I found two more small ripe tomatoes.

So, I ate two toasted tomato sandwiches for dinner.

I watched NCIS and NCIS New Orleans, then the news and the Tonight show. Then I went to bed.


  1. Do you have "GFL" (replacement for Rizzo)?? cause that's what they do here. real early one day, then 4-5 in the afternoon.

  2. Don't remember the name of the trash company. It was in a letter from the Township that I promptly threw away. But that just sounds stupid to me. Once you have a route established, why change it every now and then???
