Some time ago I wrote about the miscellaneous tools and other useful gear often found on my daily walks. Do I keep such finds? Heck, yeah. Much of it is stowed inside my tool chest or tucked away on the garage shelves.
But now comes another pather/follower of this blog – Jane – bearing a gift recovered from her own walk of shame: a brown plastic recyclable cup clearly stamped for reuse yet pitched aside by some unthinking jerk.
Jane presented the cup to me Sunday morning at Caldwell Presbyterian Church. (I habituate a back pew reserved for the especially sinful.)
Her gift caught me off guard and her kind gesture was really appreciated. She’s the epitome of the frequent – and considerate – trash picker upper: she sees junk and picks it up. Hence the cup, which is now washed and in my cupboard – ready for reuse.
Hers is the gift that will keep on giving. Say, Jane, while we’re on the topic, if you come across any metric sockets, send those my way. It will help to complete the partial set already found. But Jane, thanks again. And keep up the good community service.
