What moop 'treasures' did you find today?

Postby NessaZee » Sun Oct 02, 2011 12:04 pm

One of my favorite things to do is grab my camera and go for a walk. Especially at this time of year. When I'm prepared, I pick up moop along the way and this is what I scored today:

The zipper tag says '1st Class', the carwash token has a pretty cool old car on it..and the pliers are in good shape(and weren't around an obvious work site/garage). I also found a golf ball...which I promptly lost 'cause I was bouncing it off shit lol and half a pack of not soggy cigarettes :mrgreen:
One thing that made me giggle was finding an empty package of viagra and like 3 condoms (yes used...great! and EEEEW) under this park bench in a fairly public area teehee

Me too.

I walk an hour a day and bring home or otherwise dispose of all manners of things.

Nothing today but I'll be sure to post in the future.

I found a couple pairs of broken eyeglasses, and a cellphone belt clip. Weird because two weeks ago, I found an otter box case with no clip....

NOthing today. but I had a heck of a time last Thursday. Went south with the Furniture and Equipment people and didn't pick up bottle caps under the freeway because I didn't want to be too eccentric.

I live in an interesting neighborhood.


In order of discovery:

#1
Image

#2
Image

#3
Image

#4
Image

#5
Image

#6
Image

#6 (cover page)
Image

Everything was properly disposed of along the route (otherwise I'd need a red wagon)
except for #1 which was kicked into a sewer.

Had I found #3 first I would've used it on #1.

Probably could've used both #3 and #4 on #6 but I had already found a garbage can by then.

Here, where it's rained most of the last 7 weeks (floods during Burningman) I just saw the best & largest golf umbrella
I've ever seen go in a trash bin at a food store. Dude says its totally jammed & won't close.

He leaves & I try to unjam it without luck. Back into the trash.

20 minutes later after coming out of the food store I see it's still there.
It's about 6 ft in diameter so with nothing to loose (it's MOOP anyway) I stretch my legs wide
and stand on 2 opposite sides. This buckles it a bit loosening the jammed handle just enough
to pull it down to normal closed position. Now it's good as new.

I deMOOPED it & brought it home. Should last forever!
:shock:

It rained today. Selected items (sans cans bottles and candy wrappers):

Image

The Lucky 7's scratch off wasn't lucky but it looks like somebody else was, I'm doubtful the Stetson cologne was helpful in that but the little baggie may have been, the glove wasn't found near the Trojan wrapper or it probably would've stayed there.

I like things that you can imagine stories around.

I kept the quarter.

I have to thank the OP, if not for this thread I would not have changed the route of my walk.
I discovered things I didn't know about my 'hood today.

I don't know if this fell out of someone's garbage can or some one had an emergency and tossed it out the car window.

Shitty pics but this is a self urinary catheter kit:

Image

This a used condom, I kicked the wrapper next to it:

Image

I draw the line at touching stale semen/urine of unknown origin so I used a paper bag I found nearby to dispose of these items.

I will be sporting gloves on future walks.

But, mainly, I discovered people are having a really good time out there and not inviting me.

Image

WTF? 3 nips, two nickle bags, papers, cigars, latin beats, condoms.

....and then I ran across this:

Image

and felt better about the whole thing.

I kept the 27 cents.

No, I finished my task, and then stood in the urinal and took a photograph.

after witnessing and assisting to clean up an overturned portapotty truck on the playa one year, i have lost all fear of touching "Icky" stuff.

there is nothing ickier than that, i am immune to icky now.

It was Thanksgiving up here, yay holiday monday :)

went for a long walk in the river valley, forgot a plastic bag, but remembered my glove.

luckily I found a pair of plastic bags near the beginning of my route and de-mooping ensued!!

EDIT**forgot to add this:
because of the holiday, and the fact that it was downright BEAUTIFUL out yesterday, there were way more people out and about than usual when i was walking. at one point, i passed by a family and heard a little girl ask her father what i was doing....he replied 'she is picking up litter that is out of place and making this pathway a prettier place to walk'. YAY!!
many smiles and 'good day's' were exchanged on this particular walk. :mrgreen:
