What is My Neighbourhood Coming To?

OK, this was weird, and I probably should have taken pictures, but I was on my way out and just needed to clean it up in a hurry.

Yesterday morning, I was headed out with Rob for some "Judas" costume shoppings. Outside my front door was a huge mess. It turned out to be four trash cans (full of what looked like household trash), two road cones and a vacuum cleaner, none of which I had ever seen before.

I called Brendan, who had left for work earlier, and he said it was there when he left. Aidan says he heard some thumps during the night, but didn't look out. I'm kind of glad he didn't, as there is no way to look outside without whoever is out there knowing it.

Now I'm wondering if I should have called police, or the neighbourhood association or something...

I know my back yard is a mess, but the front looks fairly respectable, thanks to my neighbour with his riding mower.

I wonder if it has anything to do with my Obama bumper sticker!

Still, it wasn't flaming poo, so I think I'll ignore for now.

To the person or persons who did this, I have just one thing to say--thanks for the trash cans...mine are pretty much on their last legs!


  1. That would really tick me off and I would do my best to find out who it belonged to. Perhaps looking through some of the less messy trash, there would be a envelopes or something with a name or address.

  2. You know, if I had been by myself when I found it, my crime board skills would have kicked in, but as it was found by somebody coming to my door to pick me up for a shopping expedition, and as it was trash day, I totally destroyed the evidence by hauling it all to the curb.

    I could kick myself for it now, but there you have it.
