If I am by myself I have a book in my headphones, but one of my kids was along so no book today!
2 people honked today and I don’t think that is because they thought we were going to step out in the road. This site is very close to the busy Washington Road. We found odd things on this pickup: my first bullet casing, more guy-wire half buried slightly up in the woods, old-style aluminum cans with pull tops, 4 tire balancing weights, wood slats. There were many, many bottles, both broken and intact. These are almost exclusively alcohol related. I found 7 pennies for my biggest day of individual coins though 26 cents was the largest take so far (1 quarter, 1 penny on a playground).
We also found thousands of cigarette butts. We did not pick up many of these. In medicine if we are counting cells under a microscope we have an abbreviation: TNTC. That means; to numerous to count. Well the cigarette butts were TNTPU: to numerous to pick up. They also were so entwined with pine straw it was not practical. I think they would need raked up, and I might do that some day.
One knee began to act up since I usually lean over to pick the things up.
