angry, angry Elmer Fudd

Old cat food cans, plump slugs, and my housekeys

Lesson Learned Today: When dumping plastics and cans into the very tall outdoor recycling bin, DO NOT hold your keys in your hand. Put them in your pocket, where they will be safe ... where they will be less likely to FALL INTO OLD CANS OF CATFOOD SEVERAL FEET DOWN and then require you to tip the whole bin on its side and use an umbrella to fish stuff out until you can reacquire the keys. Sheesh!

There was even a giant slug oozing its way along the inside wall of the bin. *shudder*
