It seemed improbable, but there it was on the water bill: PLACE BULKY AT CURB BY 6AM (WED) 07/04/07. The first Wednesday of the month is our usual day for Bulky Waste pickup, so that wasn’t a big deal, but it’s the Fourth of July, fercryingoutloud.
So yesterday afternoon I wheeled the old lawn mower to the curb and folded down its handle, lest anyone think I was just taking a break, hoping the city would pick it up in the morning. I needn’t have worried: it’s not 6 am yet, and already someone has hauled it away.
The new one, says Amazon, has been shipped.
