Walking the neighborhood

When the dear wife and lived in the ratbag Dawntree apartments in Carrollton, I would walk the dog and take a 5gal bucket and trash picker (e.g. nifty nabber) with me.

On a light day I might get about 2 gallons of litter off the ground around our apartment. The worst day was 2.5 buckets (12.5 gallons of litter). It was astounding and depressing, and there was trash every... single... day.

When I drive through our neighborhood now I am alert for litter but have seen none on our block. Not a scrap. It's a different world.

I still have the bucket/nabber. I suppose I'll have cause to use it someday but until then I am grateful for our neat little neighborhood.
