One Man's Trash IS a Treasure!


I walk about three miles a day...Wednesdays are not always as fun as other days because my neighbor does not put his trash in a can...but merely throws the bags onto the road side and let's the buzzards take over!!
These are not shy birds...the are ugly and a little frightening!
We live in a beautiful neighborhood surrounded by a conservation area...so we do have wild life...but these birds are a little intimidating when you try to walk around them!
Visit Angie at 7 Circus Clowns for more Wordful Wednesdays!

Holy cow!!! I'd be getting a petition signed to have the man do it up right!!!!

I decided to join Wordful Wednesday, hope you can stop by and see my holiday desktop--in the literal sense! Happy day to you.

Do you have an Association in your neighborhood? If so bring it to their attention.... or can't the city do something about it since they pick up the garbage all over his yard? So sorry you have a neighbor with these poor habits... it's really gross, and you are right, buzzards are large and a bit frightening. Time to take action.

You should just walk three miles in front of his house with a big sign stating how disgusting he is.

Rhonda said...

Oh, that is awful!! I totally agree with Jill on this one!

Jenners said...

How disgusting!!! But kind of cool looking birds!

I cannot believe that the birds are that bold. I thought that they only went after road kill. But beyond that your neighbor should be required to have a can. Have you spoken to him about it?

Glenda, saved by grace said...

ewwwwwww. Take up a collection for the guy a trash can...
No really I'd call the association.

Kori said...

That's a little scary. Those Birds are HUGE!

Diane said...

Ick. I'd be skipping my walk on Wednesdays. And reporting him to... someone!

Tiffany said...

Wow! I'd expect that here in the boonies of Southeast GA. But in a nice subdivision?

Jennifer said...

Yikes--those birds are HUGE! I'd be scared of them too! It's really great you walk so much--I feel so lazy...

Kelli @ Gohn Crazy said...

Ick! Scary looking birds indeed!

Eeeeoooooo

Tenakim said...

We have the same problem with raccoons! Very gross!

careysue said...

Reminds me of the movie "The Birds" freaked me out when I watched it.

I cannot believe you have buzzards in your beautiful neighborhood. In fact, I lived in the country and have never seen a buzzard before.

Bring a baseball bat next time and hit them with it!!

Lori of I'm no super Mom said...

SCARY!!! That would freak me out!

Lauren said...

Someone should report him.

angie said...

I'm surprised the neighbors don't protest. I'm pretty sure I wouldn't want to walk by those buzzards either! :)

Teri said...

Eeeew! Tacky tacky tacky. I wonder what his issue is about just putting the bags in a can. Yuck.

mommaof4wife2r said...

all i can say is:

shut up!!! it's flipping me out a little. yikes!

Michelle said...

I thought we had it bad with black birds. I'd take them over buzzards!

Chocolate Covered Daydreams said...

Can you eat those buzzards? They are just as big as a turkey!

Does the garbage man charge double for picking up his scraps?

Karyn said...

How do those birds get through the front gate of your neighborhood?
Really gross!

Z's Mom said...

Awww...they're kinda cute.....for buzzards!

Sorry....I got nothing else.... :)

Yaya said...

eek!

breelyn_faith said...

OMGoodness! I can't believe he just leaves it like that for the birds. Yoy have such a beautiful neighborhood. And I bet they are aggressive birds. I really hate birds. They scare me.I've been attacked by one before. Hope it changes for you.

Carla said...

one word-UCK!

Marshmallow Circus said...

Holy....I can't believe someone is that rude!

Mamahut said...

Do me a favor k? Don't get to comfy and fall asleep in your yard. Your so tiny, one of those ugly buzzards could carry you away.

Elizabeth said...

OMG!! That vulture on the roof spreading his wings scares the bejeezus out of me!!

Michelle said...

Wow. I'm shocked. Who cleans up the mess when they are done?
