Frankfort Dumpster, Day 1
Today, I took the day off to go down to Frankfort. Bob and Julie got a dumpster, and I was going to help them clear out some items from the garage (and attic).
The dumpster ended up not arriving until later in the afternoon, so I took the opportunity to transport Julie’s plant stand to our basement while we were waiting. Got it set up for Liz, to begin her plantings.
The dumpster arrives! We got the “I am Groot” jokes out of the way in the first 10 minutes.
Running the lawn mowers and snowblowers, getting rid of old gasoline.
Starting to stack. For the first bit, I treated this as a game of Tetris… trying to stack things as efficiently as I could.
Bob, burning some wood while Julie looks over some items pulled out of the garage.
The weather was really great for this kind of work. And though it’s March, it felt oddly like an early fall day.
I’m sure the fire going helped with that feeling.
More careful stacking.
The fire got pretty intense at times.
An old Hickory Street sign, that used to mark the street. This was going to get tossed, but I decided I wanted to hang on to it.
The fire got so hot… it ended up burning off the wooden handle.
Julie found Bob’s “secret plans,” in the form of his notes/calculations.
Secret plans, details.
Made a pretty good dent in things. Everything in here is pretty well stacked up flat – so that’s quite a lot of wood inside there.
