Just had to rifle through the dumpster
OK, so the dictionary defines rifle through as searching with the intent to steal. Well I suppose, sort of, that's what I did. The dumpster next door is being removed tomorrow. I went through it quickly this afternoon. I was really only able to recover (see that's better, more like rescuing than stealing) a small portion of what I would have liked to get out of the dumpster. Unfortunately Grumpy Old Man's (GOM) kids didn't care much at all about the stuff and much of it was broken or ruined in some way or another. But I did find some treasures - GOM's baptismal record, his college diploma (we both we to the same university, albeit he graduated before I was born!), and family photos. What a bunch of jerks!!!! Between being thrown in and the rain the computer, printer, and office supplies were toast. There were a few trash bags that were thrown in. I opened them and found a couple of unbroken Pyrex measuring cups, a Pyrex baking dish, a nut cracker, about a dozen new boxes of Ziploc bags, a nice Webster's dictionary, and best of all, a brand new pair of good cowboy boots that either boy or girl will fit into in a few years.
