  3. Good for you!



    I did something good today too. I’ve been feeding a parakeet, which dropped by admiring my lovebird’s feast. The neighbors have cats and I went on a search for the owner. Couldn't find the owner but found someone to adopt it. As he picked it up I came in the house to find my wife had made a cage out of a cardboard carton and placed a roost and food for the bird. Too late to take back the adoption. At least the cat didn't eat it. Mothers day is tomorrow so about the new pet?

    great! :)

    just out of curiosity...
    what was some of the shit that you cleaned up?
    anything interesting or bizarre??

    this reminds me...
    there is a favorite creek of mine that i went down to recently,
    and i was horrified to find a huge microwave sitting right in the middle of it.
    the window had been smashed out, and this hulking thing was just poking out of the water.
    i dragged it out and got it into a dumpster. not much of an improvement...
    lord knows what kind of deadly things had already seeped out into the water supply.
    but you gotta do something...

    The kids and I take trash bags to the beach with us and always fill them. :( I can't believe how people can leave so much trash behind them after they leave the ocean. It is really sad.

    Good for you! We always take lots of extra bags on hikes and camping and it's so sad all the shit people throw out in nature.

    Love & Light,
