My friend and sometime photo contributor Sherry, in her own inimitable style, gave me a gentle prod last week.
She called me out for my unceasing bitching about slobs – while never giving a pat on the back, let alone a thank you, to those who do their part to put litter in its place.
She’s right. I’ve done nothing to compliment the unsung heroes who pick up their paths or stoop to pick up a bottle or can for proper stowage in their recycle bin. Sherry is one such soul, my friends Bob, Richard, Tom and John are others.
So let me correct a gross oversight right here and now. If you’re someone who has selflessly (and anonymously) done the right thing – even if it’s just every so often – let me tip my omnipresent ball cap your way and say my own ‘Thank you.’ It’s not just me that offers that, it’s the general populace that is better off for what you do; it’s the general environment that is prettier and less hazardous to wildlife and humans, and it’s the overall notion that we can simply do better in terms of how we manage our resources.
So thanks again.
