    Got lucky today

    I have my light iron container sitting up by the road. The field gets too muddy for the truck to go back and pick it up. Spent all day in the back of the field cutting up car frames and pulling engines and all that fun stuff. Drove out of the field on the way home, and someone felt the need to drop there metal off at my bin. Very nice of them. They even stacked it up for me rather than just throwing it off the truck. So free money basically. Then to sweetin the deal they also put a nice homemade trailer next to the dumpster. Since I did not have a useable trailer this was a very welcomed surprise. Wish I knew who it was so I could put a 12 pack on their door step.

    In the warmer weather I put out a sign in my front yard that says that I buy batteries.
    I got up one day and went outside to look at the bright summer day and there was 2 batteries thrown out by my back door. Never did find out who it was. Must have been someone looking for a drop-off spot just to get them out of their garage.
