    A Native American, in a shady spot on a church lawn, so soused I thought he was dead as my mower 6" from his head did not wake him. Had to call a cop to roust him.

    Found a couple of used needles on a playground at a elementary school. I didn't know what to do so I was real careful and picked em up real carefully and put em in the dumpster. I figured I was more qualified to dispose of them than a curious young-un.

    I mow a retirement home and every week I find enough empty bottles of liquor to fill a 20 gal trash bag. I have found hundreds of bags of mary jane (also empty, except for mj dust). The projects are across the way.
