I’ve seen a lot of bags of leaves (and whatever else accumulates on lawns) out on the curb in the last couple of days. Now that winter’s over it’s time to make your property pleasant to look at!
Unfortunately bags of leaves don’t interest me whatsoever. I have made a few finds, however.
I’m driving a lot for a job and I spotted this pile in Westmount close to Decarie (possibly on avenue NDG) on Friday. In the front you can see a little guitar amplifier that was amongst the stuff. I brought it home and it works well other than an annoying buzzing noise. This should be easily fixable though – I gave it to my room-mate for her to work on.
Yesterday I found the body of an electric guitar sitting on top of a bunch of bags on St-Dominique near Gauthier. It’s in decent shape – just empty. The same room-mate is interested in it as a project so I gave it to her to do as she pleases!
Inside one of the bags with the guitar was a box with a bunch of electronic-type stuff inside. It should come in handy in the guitar project. I have no idea how this stuff works, but maybe I’ll learn a thing or two from watching.
Also on top of the pile of bags was this keyboard. It looks to be in decent shape but I didn’t find the adaptor so I can’t test it. It’s just a matter of time until I find another 9v DC adaptor, and once I do I’ll let you know if it works.
I’m fairly busy with work but I should be able to make my evening runs at least. Soon the garbage will start flowing from the McGill ghetto as some of the kids leave a lot of stuff behind when they move back home for the summer. It was pretty crazy last year and I’m not expecting anything different this time around.
