For the past several years I've noted that the crowd that gathers near the public park to watch Fourth of July fireworks is a bunch of litterbugs as far as discarding empty beer cans is concerned.

So, on this fifth of July I made it a point to route my walking/exercising path to the park. Sure enough I wasn't disappointed. I'd taken one larger than usual plastic bag with me, but it soon became apparent that it would be insufficient.

Luckily a discarded plastic "T-shirt" bag presented itself and I managed (just barely) to stuff all the easy to reach cans into the two bags.

If I feel up to it I may run the same route again tomorrow to police up the ones that got away today.
