The RB Park Pick Up

My dad, sister, and I went to the RB park.  We played for a couple of minutes.  Then we went on a walk for cans, bottles and glass bottles.  We didn’t find much, but when we got to the dog park we hit the jackpot!  We found three boxes of glass and one big bottle of water.  We left it there because there were too many to carry.  My dad said we would come back and grab them in the car.  We went downhill a little.  There were two cans next to each other and one had three cans and the other one had one can.  Then we walked a little down the lane.  We saw a tree, next to the tree was a can.  I went and picked it up.  Then, right across form it, were five bottles not even in a trash can!  They were scattered over a dugout.  I went and picked all of them up.  Then, we went back to the park area and played for a little bit.  After that, we went back to the car.  We drove over to where the three boxes of glass were and went and picked them up.  While picking them up, my dad dropped a glass bottle and it broke open.  Beer went everywhere and got all over me.  It was better then getting glass on me.   I thought the beer would sting my eyes just like sunscreen, but it didn’t.  I was fine after that and I went home and talked to my mom and took a bath.

  1. Dear Kan Kid,

    It sounds like you had a very productive day! Even though what I’m about to tell you has nothing about recycling cans and it might have freaked out your mom, it does involve composting leaves AND MORE! Last Wednesday was what we call “Leaf Day.” On Leaf Days the city allows us to rake all of our leaves into the street so that trucks can drive by, scoop them up and take them to an area where the leaves can be turned into compost which is good for gardens and growing food. Well, while I was busy raking leaves into the street I saw something move. When I looked closely I realized that it was a young RAT! Oh my gosh! Some people would just kill it because rats sometimes can carry diseases. But it was kind of cute. So, instead of killing it, I scooped it up with my rake and put it in one of my “Yard Debris” containers that was also being picked up by the city workers that day. I was just curious, what do you think you would have done if you had found a young rat?

    p.s., I have pictures of the rat on my rake and on the ground but I don’t know how to share them with you on this website.


    1. Dear Scott,
      Did the rat bite you? If I had seen a rat, I would put it in the recycling can. If you want to email me a picture of the rat you can! Just a couple of weeks ago my dad was getting a play structure from someone who was giving it away for free. When he took a post out of the ground, he noticed some leaves and some movement. He realized they weren’t actually leaves! They were baby rats. The mom rat was over in the bushes and was running back and forth to save her babies. The end. Thanks for reading my website!
