Go Phillies! It's very exciting here at the moment. We struggled through the first few months of the season and have been running behind in the National League East division trailing the New York Mets, the most hated team in this town. We've been struggling for a wild card playoff spot thinking we'd never catch the Mets, who with 17 games to play had a 7 game lead. Well, in what is usually Philadelphia Style, the Mets started to fall apart and as of last night, we're now tied for 1st place with only 3 games left to play!

Go Phillies!

I don't know what's with the fits and spurts surrounding my blog posting for awhile. I need to make a point of updating daily. I should make it part of my routine like brushing my teeth.

I just put two very dry and almost dead ferns, which had been hanging on our porch, on the curb with the rest of the trash and an hour later a really attractive older woman came to the door and told me that she was taking them to put in her greenhouse and that she's been picking our trash regularly! Being a huge fan of reclaimed stuff, I was tickled. Good for her! I always prominently place stuff I think folks might be interested in and it's usually gone very quickly.

I've been a trash picker for years. Got about twenty Italian terra cotta pots years ago - someone was insane to dump them. Have gotten lots of neat things.

Trash picking, dumpster diving - it's all good.
