Celebrate the 4th of July with Underwear

July 2nd, 2018 – Safeway Route.

Today was cool with a light rain, so we wore rain gear again.  Trash was normal for a Monday and we got honks from Mr. Handyman and the Seattle bus driver.  Another bus driver, the Totem Lake/Kirkland route, always points his finger at me when I wave.  Janet says he’s giving me the finger.  We flung a squirrel.

Janet wore her new Salinas Construction Paving Team vest.


She feels obligated to wear it but would rather not.

Shock N’ Awe.


I can’t help thinking “Shock” at the price and “Aw, crap” when they are lit.

Jurassic World-let.

We didn’t wait for the other shoe to drop.


Or, if the shoe fits…

Together again.



July 3rd, 2018 – Park and Ride Route.

Today was a cool clear morning with little trash.  Everyone seems to be saving up their litter for the Independence Day.  We got a honk from Mr. Handyman and flung a small squirrel.  We found another smashed PVC cement can that needed to be pried from the road.  I must have missed it on Saturday.

Found another cap, now in the Goodwill pile.


It was run over multiple times but should recover.

The McLitterers are still at it.



July 4th, 2018 – No walk today.

Poulsbo celebrates the Fourth on the third with a decent fireworks display.  Janet’s sister lives in Poulsbo and has a home with a deck overlooking Liberty Bay.  She throws an Independence Day party every year and we spent the night in Poulsbo.


July 5th, 2018 – Safeway Route.

This morning was warm and clear.  We got a honk from Mr. Handyman and a very enthusiastic drive-by honk from another driver.  This was a very eventful walk.

Today being the day after the Independence Day, we expected extra trash and were not disappointed.


Honor your country’s birthday by blowing stuff up and leaving a mess.  We picked up a little but left the bulk of it.  Hopefully,  the homeowners will take responsibility.

But the highlight of today’s walk was,


Dropped underwear number 18, Hanes.  Note the careful positioning of the undies to keep the photo as tasteful as possible.

We came upon a 6.


Or is it a 9? q? b?

Today we found a sweater, a towel and a belt.


All are headed for Goodwill.  No, not near the underwear.

The lame LimeBike, left, made it to the bottom of the Tolt Pipeline Trail, leaving the other, on the right, at the top.


We also found the lame LimeBike’s leg elsewhere on the hill.




Still too expensive.

The rest of our haul today:


4th of July refrigerator magnet, an unopened pack of fire crackers, Karl’s tape measure, a bracelet with the tag still attached and a bunch of coins.

  • $0.30 in US Dollars
  • $1.95 in Canadian Dollars
  • 1 Mexican Peso
  • 1 Seattle Ye Olde Curiosity Shop Souvenir Coin

For the record, Karl’s tape measure is the 7th tape measure we’ve found since we started our walks.

We will be out of town for the rest of the week, so will not be doing our normal walks.  We will “pick them up” again next week.
