These photos were taken on July 21, 2020.
The location was at my home in Beltsville, Maryland.
The "Take It!” came from my slowly realizing I may be engaging in what might be a
worthwhile pass along.
For some weeks now that summer is in full record breaking heat swing - I have been
puting out soft drinks in an ice filled ziplock bag - for the sanitation workers that
pick up our neighborhood trash. There are three cans: one for the driver of the truck
and the other two for each of the pick em up folks that are out there doing the heavy
lifting. On a few occasions I have been out there when they made their stop at my
house. We exchange thank you's as they are a very important part of how this whole
thing keeps working.
I know this sort of gesture cannot work for everybody - but where it can - please give
it a try - you will be sincerely appreciated.
While spending this much time at home has its moments of feeling a bit confined - I am
finding I am able to take on and clear up many projects which is very
I miss being out and about - where there are viewing's of many interesting things
available - and subject matter for photographs. I hope everyone will be able to
stay with us - as we sometimes get into the small stuff. Amazingly enough -
sometimes the small stuff can in time - loom large.
We wish everyone good health and even the chance for new found happiness.
