This isn't about mowing the lawn, it's about the trash in the yard. I've found that where ever I have lived, I was one beer can, one beer bottle, one happy meal, one candy bar wrapper away from the establishment that sells these items. I have only had to mow 3 times so far this season. For those of you unfamiliar with the drought we are experiencing, that is a low number. Our mowing season usually is from mid March-mid November. I usually mow 2-3 times a month. So by now I should have mowed 9-10 times! Any way about the trash. I was thinking about a children's sermon I heard when I was about 11 years old. I admit I don't remember the sermon, but the response from the preachers son. He spoke about a beer can that he found in his yard on his way to church, and how that person's life was affected by alcohol. He asked his son after church was over, what he learned from his sermon. His son replied, "If you drink beer, don't litter!" I want to put a sign in my yard, "I don't throw my trash in your yard, PLEASE don't throw trash in mine!" But that sign would probably end up in someone elses' yard. As have yard sale signs, campaign signs ended up in mine.

    Hi Alan I live in the country on a country road. I've often wanted to put out a trash can with a target on it so they would at least try to get them in the can...Then I thought "What an Invite" and would have a ton of cans...More than normal...
    I really don't mind picking up the cans...BUT Milwaukee's Best ????
