Trash Mountain

and it really was – been a long time since either one of us had been there, guess for me it had been at least 10 yrs. since we’ve been in our house that long so really probably longer than that because we had our house a while before we were able to move in so really probably more like 15 or even 20 yrs. – a long time for a lot of trash and garbage to build a mountain – sure don’t remember being told to climb that mountain the last time we went, pretty windy and scary when got to the top right at the edge, sure didn’t want to go over it and then having to try to back that trailer – opposite or same, which way do you turn, are your wheels straight? so thankful for the young man being willing to climb down out of his big piece of heavy equipment and do it for us – maybe because we were holding up traffic, though?

but got us to thinking, what happens to it all when it gets full – had heard they’ve even made golf courses out of them – so unlike 20 some odd years ago – not only do we have Google but we even have it with us – and not so sure about mine but hers is even voice-activated – so…”Google – what happens to landfills when they’re full?”

I'm a transplant, born up north but raised in the middle, now I'm down here where you don't see too many snowflakes; I'll probably post just about as often (here at least)
