What happened in the book:
Harry Truman gets inaugurated for a short 82 day spell as VP before Franklin Roosevelt died in Warm Springs, GA. Truman made excellent first impressions as his term as President kicked off.
No honking here in Augusta. It was weird how I started a mere 17 seconds after I did 1 week ago. (look at those watches: today and last week) I always wonder who might see me and recognize me when I do litter pickup so close to my house and neighborhood. The coolest thing I found today was a handmade Tomahawk. It was about 35 feet from a playground and across one of the roads so I bet it had been thrown.
Also notable was how different the trash was in this area versus along Furys Ferry Road across the river in South Carolina (see here for 9/11/2016 and here for 9/18/2016). Here there was a bunch of tiny pieces of paper. There was one paper airplane. There were a number of hair bands and barrettes. There were 3 empty hand sanitizer bottles and many hand wipes. There were 5-10 folded paper towels scattered about. I am not sure what they exactly were for, but there were too many to be isolated throws. There were many, many broken bottle fragment, but only one intact bottle (Mellow Yellow). These were for the most part in a ditch beside Crane Ferry Road, but there was so many bottle fragments. It was also interesting to see the large number of cigarette butts alongside candy wrappers.
