Of course, back then,
Unfortunately, today's children will never know the joy that comes from trips to the dump. You see, their parents think it's too far to drive. They also think that it's MUCH more convenient to just toss their trash out along the road as they head to, say, the grocery store.
These tires live on the hard surface road, just past our driveway. They have been there for so long, that the crews trimming trees around the power lines have begun to fill them with firewood. I've thought about planting flowers in them, but just haven't had the time!
On our way home from church last Sunday, we caught a glimpse of something shiny as we came up the driveway. I got out to investigate, and discovered a television in the ditch. Yes, a television. These folks didn't want to get caught dumping trash along the road, there's a fine for that. But, HEY!, there's no fine for dumping an old tv on private property because no one will ever catch you!! Right? Oh, how I wish we had pulled in behind them...
