Find It, Found, Foiled

Rubbish Walks in the UK is an account I follow on IG.  It's run by Jason Alexander who refers to himself as a litterologist.  Yesterday I watched one of his videos where he found a cup on the beach and filled it up with litter.

Find it, fill it.
(Same thing I do with plastic bags but on a smaller scale.)

Today I came across two cups and filled them up.
Interesting that the one cup says "Turn Off" because it is definitely a turn off if you are littering.
I think there's a theme going on here.

Yesterday I found a bunch of faux flowers being thrown out.
And today I found this on the ground.
A doily I thought I had finished before my walk this morning had to be ripped back because somehow I only wound up with 7 points instead of 8.
Is points the right word -- I don't even know.
But I do know it's my bedtime so gotta go.

Good night.

I am a litterologist as well :)
Love your dedication to litterology - we need more people join it!

That blue flower would make a cute brooch.

You are so faithful in your clean up walks. I love all your handywork. That's your expression and mine the watercolor. How nice that we all don't do the same thing!!

Dearest Tammy,
Yes, trashing things IS a BIG—TURN OFF!
Good for you for collecting that trash but it remains a shame that others don't seem to care.
As for your crocheting, I've had to rip out so often my work for having 'overlooked' one group or point whatever you call it.
But, we keep in mind the perfect end result!
Big hugs,

How wonderful that you take the time to clean up a bit of rubbish left behind by others. So sad that you have to do that. Your doily is looking fabulous. Such pretty fibers you are using. Have a lovely day, Tammy.

Literologist. Great term. I hope you were gloves when you're picking up the trash/liter. On my last trip to the beach, one of the hotels had green buckets on hooks by the walkway with a sign that said take one as you walk, fill it up and return. I think there were two containers on return, one for trash and one for recycling. I don't know why people liter and often wonder what their houses and offices look like. Keep up the good work.

We are always cleaning up where we go, too. I am always amazed people don't mind litter collecting along the road right in front of their homes! Yes, points works for me-I knew what you meant!

It was so nice to see your post, Tammy. You are always creating something beautiful. I admire that talent in you. Hope all is well.

Littering is something I doubt I will ever understand. I live on a small road in a very small town, and when the pandemic first started, the littering along my road increased exponentially and of course included disposable masks. Infuriating. But it could be worse...our police chief told me a few years ago that they were having trouble with littering at the parking area for the trails where Piper and I used to walk by the pond. Someone was dumping bags of (used) adult diapers. I reminded myself of that while I was picking up soda cans and fast food wrappers and disposable masks on the frontage of my own property.

Litter makes me angry. It takes so little effort to pick up one's garbage. When we're out hiking my husband picks up garbage and puts it in a bag in his pack to dispose of properly.

I love the idea of pick up trash on your walks I think I will try it. What a good idea. Love your blog.
