I looked out the window a few minutes ago and saw this image. Seems some local gypsies got inventive and knocked over the paper recycling container to bust into it from the bottom and take the paper. Presumably, they'll hit as many of these as needed to fill that van then take it in to some recycling center and get some money for it.

Not gipsies, I've seen them a couple of times, too. They have to sort the paper (newsprint, glossy, cardboard etc) before being able to sell it so it requires some work. They mostly reminded me of tribal hunters, the way they knock and gut the blue beast in under a minute.

Aw, okay. I'm used to the gyspies in our neighborhood, so thought it was them. The gypsies show up every time there's that seasonal trash dump outside. They guard it and come and go with a truck to take scrap away and such. It's actually a big help for recycling materials, I think.

A convenient truth.

A familiar sight, by all means ;-)
