9 bags of trash, a ladder, a shovel and a shoe

Trash pick up around the loop was successful as far as garbage collection goes. Our neighbor, Denise Webber and her son Michael, a 7th grader, showed up to help. That was 2 more than Buzz and I were counting on.

It took almost 2 hours to walk a 2 mile loop. We picked up everything in sight. Thank goodness Denise is very meticulous. She even stopped to pick up tiny pieces of glass on the sidewalk. She and her son were both tireless workers. I found it amazing that people throw out everything from beer bottles to food wrappers to old tires without a care in the world.

Thank you Denise and Michael for your help. You are both great!
