Yesterday I called our garbage service to check on the weight of the dumpster after they picked it up. There was a 2,000 pound limit, but Alice was sure she was well under that. Not so. They told me it had 1.21 tons of rubbish in it. So Alice moved a lot of stuff over the last weekend and I’m not surprised her back was sore and she felt tired! The overage charges in time and weight always surprise me. They are very little compared to the basic fee. It was only seven dollars and some cents for the extra weight. And would be $5.00 a day for each day extra, though the charge for the dumpster for seven days (the minimum) huge in comparison.
These chairs are new to our cottage this summer. Aren’t they great? A neighbor was throwing them out because she was tired of painting them and Alice snagged them for us. Solid wood. Wonderfully made! You have a great view of the lake when you sit in them.
