Skateboard and Ham Sandwich.

Skateboard and Ham Sandwich

Another night of dumpster diving. 

As always I drag a heap of food home. The distance is quite a way and the bags do get heavy (as I always manage to fill them to the brim). I have had to go back an forth to the dumpster on foot twice even three times during the night. It is a great cross-training work-out believe me, just not very time efficient.

One night I was out and about and I spotted half a sports-pram sitting on the side of the road. It was as though Zeus had left a magic item to aid my quest. I ventured slowly toward the pram chassis, so as not to scare it away. At the critical moment I sprang, catching it and wrestling with the magnificent beast until she quietened, tamed.

Dumpster Pram

We ride together now to the dumpster, Pegasus the Pram and I. We can carry twice the amount of rescued food that I can alone……and she glides so nice.

Pegasus my dumpster companion, also loves to help with picking up litter. She really is a great little magic chariot. 🙂

So here is what we managed to rescue from the depths of landfill hell last night.
