Tall And True Short Reads

Council Clean-ups and Recycling

Episode 61 (16 October 2022)

One fine October Sunday in 2020, I returned home from the morning dog walk to be greeted with the news our annual council clean-up was happening on Monday. After previous clean-ups, I thought we had nothing left to throw out. And I looked forward to a long productive day of writing … until I checked the attic and shed!

Episode Insight

I wrote Council Clean-ups and Recycling after a fine Sunday in October 2020. And if you visit the blog post on the Tall And True website, you’ll see photos of my neatly arranged pile on the verge, my son’s 2017 haul, including the drill press, and the books I rescued in 2020.

Although the mature, middle-aged me is less of a “Magpie” than my son nowadays, I still feel the thrill of discovery when I come across a box of books and have added to my bedside “to be read” pile several times since I wrote this post in 2020. And returning from my walk with my dog this morning, I noticed neighbours putting out their junk on the verge. So the annual Council clean-up must have come around again, and I wonder if I can find some more books?

I hope you enjoyed my short tale of rummaging and recycling. You can read the Council Clean-ups and Recycling post and all my writing at TallAndTrue.com. You can also buy my short story collections, including my latest collection, Twelve More Furious Months, from the Amazon Kindle and Kobo online bookstores — links are available in the show notes.
