Hydrangea on the Edge of Blooming

'Tis the season of few rainy days and thus the season of leaving upholstered furniture by the side of the road.  It's okay; more often than not, someone else who can use it picks it up promptly.  But if it stays too long, as in when it starts to rain, well, then....not so good.

But really unacceptable is when the furniture/refuse gets set up on somebody else's easement or, in the case of the upholstered chair and table at the skate park, the community's property.  Unwanted furnishings go to the dump and they should be escorted and paid for by their owners, not left for everybody else to take care of.

i don't know.  The vast majority of people I meet in Pt. Roberts seem responsible, friendly, upright folks, so I can never figure out who it is that leaves stuff everywhere, and especially by the side of the road.  The easy thing to say is, 'tourists,' and sometimes those are the people who dump their garbage/trash by the roadside rather than take it to the transfer station.  After all, they can't take it back to Canada with them.  But the tourists seem kind people too.  So, what is it that makes kind people go bad?
