The Corona Fan Next Door

I went out after work today to resume working small trash collections in the windrows on the north side.
After filling one bag, I took a second bag and walked the fence line to see what was going on.
There was nothing but a few tossed CDs until I got near the end and found a couple of six packs worth of Corona beer bottles that had been tossed over the fence into the preserve, presumably by the people in the trailer on the other side of the fence.
There was some other debris, more than I had room for in the bag.
I spoke to a kid who lived there and asking him to tell anyone who was throwing  the bottles not to do it.
He, of course, acted as though he didn't know what I was talking about.
I'll be back soon with more bags..

Removing Trash, Meeting New Neighbors

I've been working on some small piles of household trash that the recent rains have exposed in some of  the windrows along the northern fire lane.

It's mostly the usual mix of household garbage, most of it old. There has been a few new entries from some neighbors launching their detritus over the fence.

I did meet a new neighbor named Juan who said he has purchased the double lot in the middle of the block and is not only  cleaning up his property, but wants to clean up the debris between the fences. He also wanted to know if he could come inside the preserve fence to do some tree work to prevent damage to his new homes, which I told him would be perfectly OK.

There's a  poinciana tree that has seen better days, which is his main target.

It's good to have at  least one good neighbor.
