For failing to comply with city ordinance 7.11.
OK - - - so they didn't really haul us to the pokey. But we DID break city ordinance 7.11.
Seems our brand spankin' new trash container has a 45 gallon capacity. In this town, the largest capacity allowed is 32 gallons or 75 pounds. If we don't comply, there will be a fine - - - or we're going to the pokey.
We got a bright orange notice on our empty trash bin which told us so. (I said the pokey part, they didn't.)
Funny thing - - - we BOUGHT that trash container right here in this little ole city and there was nary a notice in the STORE about size compliance.
At least I must have done the recycling right - - - no bright orange notice there.
I'm not buying a new trash can, we'll just haul out a nice little bag of trash that weighs substantially LESS than 75 pounds. So basically, we'll increase our trash since INSIDE that bag will still be our small bags from our indoor trash cans.
But no one's back will be broken.
This was the fire-in-the-sky sunset I enjoyed from my blogging station last evening.
There are no fines in this town for enjoying the sunset - - - at least not that I know of YET.
