The weather yesterday was pretty nasty but I did make it out to take a look around for good trash. There was lots of snow and then rain which created giant puddles of slush and ensured all your clothes got wet. I chose to walk – taking a bike in that kind of weather is more frustrating than it’s worth.
On to the finds.
I found this pan in one of these bags. I pulled it out and it looked decent, if dirty, and I brought it home.
It cleaned up pretty good! I have no need for it so I’m going to give it away. I’m not sure why someone would throw it out – unless it’s originally came with a lid. Regardless it’s definitely still good for a lot of cooking needs.
In one of these bags was a relatively new-ish electric typewriter. It’s case was designed to make it so that you could carry the typewriter like a suitcase. I brought it back but it seems to be broken. I’m thinking I might deconstruct it and make it into some kind of art.
I saw these boots in a small bag alongside some larger bags containing mostly spent cleaning supplies. They looked pretty nice (and my size) so I brought them back with me. I threw them in the oven on low for a good hour and a half (probably overkill, but at least in the winter the oven serves a dual purpose of heating your house) to ensure the lack of bugs.
They’re pretty good, and above all my size. I walked around briefly in them and they were pretty comfortable. They look like they’ve rarely been used. The brand is “Riverland” and they’re apparently waterproof. I already have a pair of boots, though these ones look a bit tougher. Over the next little while I’ll evaluate both pairs and decide if I have a use for two similar pairs of boots. If not someone’s going to get some free boots!

Hey! Did you delete your facebook? I am having a party on Friday and I want you to come!
Also I half-found, half-made the coolest lamp today and you should see it.
Hey, yeah for the time being… I’ll probably be back on it soon. But in the meantime send me an email at email@example.com. I’d like to see your lamp. I also still have cowboy boots for you.
Ok! See you tomorrow?
