Attention Keepers Of The Crap:
Before you get lost in the clutter of words that is to follow, if you take one thing away from this column remember that it’s no crime to be poor but you don’t have to be dirty.
You can thank my Mom for the above comment. She always drilled that into my head. Now, having said that please go outside to what ever junk pile is around your house, yard, vacant lot, garage, building or lean-to and pick up your crap.
I know that one man’s junk is another man’s treasure, a man’s home is his castle, private property is just that....private...blah, blah, blah. But some of us like to live in or near clean neighborhoods too. Looking at engine blocks hanging from trees, couches sitting in the front yard, and stacks of lumber next to broken bicycles and long ago broken washers and dryers gives me indigestion. Honestly I have enough things that give me indigestion the way it is.
