Ah! The Vagaries of Life

I thought it would be at least 10 more years before I would be picking cigarette butts off the pavement...
Actually, our company took part in The City of Ottawa's "Spring Cleaning the Capital" campaign and a group of us went out and spent several hours picking up trash and debris from Cooper from Bank Street to The Driveway. It's amazing what people throw on the ground, though I have to say that it wasn't as much of a mess as I anticipated. We actually finished in record time and a number of us walked along the NCC property along the Rideau Canal, picking up more trash. I left earlier than some of the die-hards because my back was killing me.
It was a beautiful day which made it even more pleasant.
