The junk man came today with his crew of young, strong men and hauled away the junk pile that we've been assembling for the last couple of years behind the shed.
Then, in a moment of inspiration, I had them haul away all the trash cans, buckets, cinder blocks, and old wood that was between the two sheds. What a difference it all made! Not only is the area clean, but there is some welcome visual space. So much nicer.
I also had the fellows take away a bunch of stuff from the little shed, making a much cleaner path to the three bikes we keep there.
Three bikes? There used to be just two big bikes and one little kids bike, but Paul got a full size bike the other day, another milestone in the growing-up process.
