While driving through a neighboring city the night before trash day, I spotted an enormous pile of books all tidy-like along the roadside. One problem; this particular city has a law that does not allow pick up of trash items without the owner's permission.
Unsure if the books were for a charitable organization, or if they truly were meant for the garbage man, I decided to go knocking. The sweetest elderly woman greeted me at the door and told the story of keeping a family friend's books at her home for years as a favor, until his passing earlier this year. She and her daughter chose a few books they liked, but didn't know what to do with the remaining. She made it clear she was THRILLED I stopped to inquire about them - even having her adult son help load them into my car.
Our Chrysler Pacifica's lease is at it's end and we are turning it in this Tuesday. It has served me well during my junk hauls over the last 3+ years, but it is now time to say goodbye. Thank you for one final AMAZING haul! You've done me proud.
As always, take care and keep on junking!
