A Penny For Your Thoughts


It has been said that one man’s trash might be another man’s treasure. I remember years ago when there was a junk yard or dump in every town.

It was a favorite place to go look for something if you needed it or just go snoop around to see who got rid of what. Many times we would take things to get rid of to the dump and come home with more than we took.

If, for instance, someone collected jars or bottles, the dump was the place to go to maybe find that unique piece for your collection. There were usually all kinds of soda bottles, mason jars, beer bottles and half empty perfume bottles to be acquired at the town dump.
