Today was our city wide clean up. As part of that, our Boy Scout troop did a fund raiser out at our local trash dump, for their upcoming Camp. The dump backs up against some BLM land, and due to the high winds, garbage gets blown from the dump out into the sagebrush/rabbit brush field. When we arrived, it looked like someone had found a way to cultivate, and grow, plastic grocery bags. Every bush had at least one bag stuck into its branches. Even that would not have been too bad, except that most of the plastic was deteriorated due to the sun. As you would grab hold, the plastic would collapse into several pieces. It made it VERY difficult to clean up the area. We had 13 boys, and spent six hours. We filled almost 40 of the giant garbage bags, and even if it wasn't completely clean when we left, it was definitely cleaner,and you could tell we had been there. I was there as a stand-in for my older boy, who was occupied today with a choir performance in Utah.
All I can say is, "HE OWES ME BIG TIME!" Stick.
