Shoofly's Photo Contributions

When last I posted we were left with the Mystery of the Missing Sasquatch X-ing Sign. Rest assured, sharper minds than mine are, "on the case"...though I did check with the ubiquitous county road crew that cruises into the valley nearly every morning. I held their lunch pails "hostage" until they started ratting each other quickly became obvious the only "socket" they were aware of was the one "a-too-dim-light-bulb" was screwed into. Sigh, the mystery continues.

Onto this week's caper.

In Pine Valley we are blessed with several talented photographers who periodically grace this blog with samples of their skill and artistry in capturing the beauty of The Valley and surrounding areas. To each of you I tip my hat and...sometimes my toupee. (That was added to keep Joan and Kirk on the edge of the couch...)

I thought I would post a couple 'a recent photos I took. Though not nearly the quality of our local artists they hopefully tell a story. (Sadly, the folks that NEED to hear the story very likely do not know how to spell "blog" let alone read these the blog postings, or take in the wonderful photos that Rex, Jodi, and Korrie so graciously share.) The "net-net" or "bottom line" (that's CPA talk for the Dally's) is that these photos, and the story they tell, are not for the vast majority of the PV residents who dutifully show pride in their surroundings...even at the DUMP. There, I said it. You know where I'm going with this...
Yep. For the most part I'm preaching' to the choir. But like the sign say's the dumpsters are here for our CONVENIENCE! If the dumping continues OUTSIDE the bins we may lose the convenience  and have to make the trek down the mountain and (Gasp!) co-mingle our trash with the flat landers in the site in Central. That would be VERY In-Convenient in my book. (Yes, I keep a book...)

Not to be a whiner I have taken a couple a steps...

First, I checked with the Manager of the Central dump site and learned that they would gladly accept the "dead refrigerators" if I hauled them down.

Second, since my Bun Runner is too small to carry one, let alone three, dead refers I sent another PV resident, who owns a flat bed trailer an e-mail asking him if he would take them down. Though he doesn't know who asked, he said yes.

Third...and this is the fun part...I asked a local hunter, skilled in the art of skullduggery, to mount one of his Trail Cams in a hidden spot. Maybe, just maybe the Trail Cam will get a photo of the flake(s) as they dump their next load of junk OUTSIDE a dumpster. Then I'll have some really good dump photos to post! (At the very least there ought to be a couple of pics of some of us peering into the trees trying to see the Trail Cam.)

Well, until next time mind your manners at the dump.
