When I moved into the neighborhood there was a dump site at the end of the alley. I called the city, the city gave me a number for the state, who owned the property. I finally got in touch with someone who sent a truck to pick up the mess. After the junk was picked up it was still a nasty area that would still encourage more dumping.

So I spent the day yesterday, (Sunday), finishing the cleanup. I also found a sign lying in the weeds that says "No Dumping".

Tada...

You could say that I was "In the dumps". Razz

I just finished the job, cutting back the last of the bushes.
"A clean neighborhood is a safe neighborhood".
(Sounds good anyway).

Of course I couldn't do any of this without Rocky's help.

It doesn't hurt the property values, either.

I may be weird but I like doing stuff like this. Its a good feeling to work hard then see the accomplishment. I tore down a few buildings to build my shop. When I got each done I was kind of sad because I didn't have any others to take down. I also enjoy finding gems in the junk. I have a 30s Goodyear I saved from a old building, I have it psted online now to trade for a shop sign. I also found all types of goodies. I found a really nice set of klein linemans plyers in good on the side of the road when I was cleaning up to mow.

It blew my mind when I saw cars parked there. Sometimes you don't really know how much your work affects others.

BTW- I do a lot of this because I've got nothing else to do.
