random acts and sprinklers

...for attempted gratitude.  we have a secret trashcan agent in our new neighborhood who rolls our big greens in for us each week.  although i have my suspicions {super cute old man joe from next door}, i can't confirm anything.  so last week, i wrote a note and taped it to the trashcan as a we know what you're doing and we appreciate you and if you ever want to come inside and empty our smelly kitchen trash directly that would be great sentiment.  i taped the note to the can thursday afternoon and rolled it to the curb.

as i left for work friday morning and saw the trashcan waiting there with my note, i felt encouraged.  encouraged that people still practice random acts of kindness for relative strangers.  it made me feel all warm and fuzzy inside.

and then i watched in horror as our front lawn sprinklers came on and drenched both trashcan and note with water. 

can't win 'em all.
