The United States celebrates its birthday on July 4th.  It is a time of displaying the colours, cooking out, and watching fireworks.

While walking around on the fifth of July, it struck me that the red, white, and blue colours show up in some uncommon ways as well.  My previous post alluded to the trash that may be left behind after the celebrations and, in some respects, there was not as much strewn about as was anticipated.  Most of the above appears to be heading for recycling.

Folks seemed to have used the available bins, which were mostly filled past the brim.

Of course, that was not always the case…

and while this  bottle was carefully placed where it took some effort to find…

Three empty bottles left on newspaper bin.

others were left where the contents were apparently consumed.

All of which would appear to mean the party is over.

Take care.
