Curbside Adoption

As I was getting ready to take Danny to school this morning, I noticed that our neighbors had a few large plastic items sitting on their driveway. These things have been mouldering under their deck for at least 5 years. At least. They were disgustingly filthy - but I saw hidden treasure.  Why?  Come next month I'll have all four of my grandkids here.  I thought to myself, "Self, when you get back you ought to knock on their door and offer them a fiver to take that grubby picnic table off of their hands."

Fast forward an hour and a half...as I was pulling back into my driveway, I noticed all the grubby plastic play equipment had been pressure washed and was sitting at the curb with a FREE sign attached.

Booyah. Fact.

Way to score Debbie! And you even got off without cleaning it. Bonus!

What a score. I wonder if they were too ashamed to leave it on the curb looking cruddy. Weirdos. Serendipitous weirdos...
