Garbage Day

Today is garbage day, and it is also the day they pick up the garbage. Yep, you guessed it, I ain’t got nothing good to say today. I woke up this morning with a dang jingle going through my head. Just the chorus of “Christmas times a coming”, now why oh why would that song be going through my head?!?!? Tell you what, you think of that song and maybe it will pop out of my head and into yours. . .

Back to the garbage pickup day, that took up a big portion of my morning. Had to make sure all the garbage and throw-away stuff was out in the cans. (Why do they still call them garbage cans when they are made out of plastic?) Then, it is a long way to where my driveway comes out at the road. For example, the portion of my property that faces the road is a half acre. There is 43,560 sq. ft. in one acre, so one half acre would be 21,780 sq. ft. The lot is 60 feet wide, so it is 363 feet just to my gate. Actually, my gate sits back further than that. And you can’t see my gate from my house. It sits back another three or four hundred feet or so.

So now you see, it takes some effort to take the garbage out for pick-up, and I am too dang stubborn to put it in the Jeep. Figure that I need the exercise. Yeh, right. . .

OK, I told you my blog was about garbage, and it turned out that my blog was (is) garbage. So, I had better quit now before I get any deeper in the stuff. .


  1. Umm,Garbage day AND Billy Bob on his way?


  2. Ya know, that's a good question about the plastic "garbage cans"! Makes ya stop and think!

  3. Hey Ben, neither has come by yet.

    Hey Jim, I have a lot of dumb questions about names of stuff or what sayings mean. The older I get the more questions I have.

    Thank you both for stopping by and picking through my garbage. . .
