michael, dumpster diving, football

thanks to the warm response to the blog on michael
his story seemed to have touched a lot of people
that little guy reaching people across the us with his story
what a special kid he is

have you ever dumpster dove
well my wife she has more than once
one day shell get caught and make the news
told her if she gets caught to not call me as ill not get her out of jail

one of my sisterinlaws and my wife she likes to go thrift shopping
and antique grazing
they have been known to pass by a dumpster and climb into it
to get some special item that someone has thrown away
they just have to have it

what ive noticed is that it usually sits somewhere for a long time
then gets donated to goodwill or the salvation army
then they go back later and buy it
then redonate it
im sure thats what they do
it seems like it is

my wife she drew on that dumpster diving experience with my
sisterinlaw this weekend

my nephew who is staying here while working on a film crew near
austin says
auntie have you seen my retainer i wrapped in a paper towel
oops i knew what happen to it when i heard him say it

ive taken over some of the household duties recently since i retired
if its on a floor i pick it up and chunk it
remember well picking up that wad of paper and since ive had two
boys i knew not to look at it
have found a lot of month old hot dogs and apples and bananas
wrapped up in paper in their rooms

when i looked and felt that wad of paper i immediately chunked it in
the trash

this weekend the trash was needing to be removed from
our property
so we took it to a trash dumpster on saturday

on sunday is when he was looking for it

on monday morning real early before the trash men came to get the
trash from the dumpster (you know the ones that make that noise
at 5:00 in the morning) my wife skipped our morning walk and
went to get that trash bag

it was just at daylight
the bin was 6 foot high
never asked her how she got up there and into the bin to get her
trash bag
im sure she pulled from her dumpster diving experience in the past
she said the construction crew across the parking lot stopped and
watched her do her trick
no clapping or whistling was done

she made it but waited to open the bag when she got home
we dug down in the bag and there it was

well let him clean it
wonder if the home owners insurance would cover a lost retainer
my wet suitcase sisterinlaw-his mom-would never forgive me
if we hadnt found that thing

hogs beat the aggies
good comefrombehind win
or bad 2nd half for the aggies
they did it again

horns looked good
will find how good they are this weekend when they play
the sooners

cowboys will break your heart
come on man
how could you loose that game
must have watched aggies in jerrys house on saturday
lets do better this week

a good story out of michigan about a high school home coming
queen who kicked the winning field goal to beat a top ranked
you go girl
