Trash Or Treasure
I've come to realize another man's trash is not always another man's treasure. Last night reading a blog about a family getting rid of old furniture reminded me of the scene we have been seeing in our neighborhood. On the main street leading into our housing addition we were seeing a table for sale at the curb of a house we pass often. It wasn't a dining table it was an oblong table like you might see in an office with stacks of papers etc. Now this table was bowed in the middle and the top was peeling as if it had seen some bad weather. It didn't look like there was any life left in it for any kind of use but never the less someone must have thought so as they had a for sale $5.00 on it. I got a chuckle out of that for several weeks then one day the sign had changed to FREE. Still no takers and it sat for several more weeks. I wondered why they didn't just chop it up and fit it into the grabage container and be gone with it. It wasn't my table or my decision. Maybe they were attached to it and really hated to see it go. Now I notice the table is gone and I find myself wondering where did it go?
