Is it a Global warming aficionado?
Or someone getting rich on empties?
Today I was grateful to be able to drive Pepper to work in the torrential like rains. She usually takes the bus. I took the camera, in case I found something photo worthy. On my way home a lady pushing a shopping cart full of bottles, topped with a two wheel bike, crossed the path of my stopped car. It seemed surreal, in the down pour, out of no where, at nine in the morning. It was a weird moment that took me a bit to process, I decided to go back to get a picture. So I turned my car around, stopped nonchalantly on the side of the road.
Patiently waited for her to pass by. I may not have been discrete enough, instead of walking past so I could get the picture, she turned down a dead end road! This is the best I could do. She stopped in front of a house, abandoned her bottles on the road, then walked up the driveway. She either lived there, or walked brazenly up to their recycle bin to root for bottles. Again I turned my car around, but by the time I returned for a better picture, she had magically disappeared. I guess she was getting in on all the New Years eve residuals ….It’s really true, the early bird does get the worm……in this case the bottles….and what a cost too!
