Abilene found this random box on somebody’s curb.

Did they think that someone else would sort their recycling?

Someone stuck their Coke bottle into this tree. We wondered why…

What did the tree ever do to them?

    This is very sweet: how often we don’t notice what is right around us, although children can show us!
