Happy Trashy Tuesday!!! What do you think THE GAP band and I have in common? And if you are too young to remember, the GAP band is not a band that sings songs for THE GAP clothing store.
The Gap Band had a big hit in 1982. “I gotta get up early in the morning”….. Think Disco and songs that you can dance really well to. With the formula of four on the floor, catchy tunes. This was a good one. The Gap Band had to get up early in the morning to find another lover. I have to get up early in the morning to find another dumpster. Cause guess what? THIS is my competition!!!!!!!!!!
I have seen Mr. Competition around town. I have seen him coming in after me when I am Apartment Dumpster diving. I haven’t seen him in a while, but last week when I went to Target (which of course involved a quick drive around the back of the shopping center), I saw him! I am positive he was getting something good that if I had just arrived first, would have been mine.
You have to be the first one out there to score the good Junque! This morning I was out and searching around 6:15. And OH did it pay off. Here is what I found in just one hour. I KID YOU NOT, one HOUR!
Do you think there is a version for grown ups? Like with a comfy soft pad and a pillow? I would love to put myself in timeout and have my own special bench to go to.
Another bookshelf! This one was interesting, there is a cabinet shop in town. I am not “technically” supposed to be driving all around the back, but they make so much garbage, I thought I would help them out. They have PILES of stuff by their big dumpsters that is waiting to be thrown out. This was in the trash pile. I know there is a handle type of thing on it, but that can be easily modified.
A golf bag???? Yep. Perfect condition. Brought this one home for Mr. Red.
He has been using my friend Annette’s hand me down golf bag…
Apparently he doesn’t care that it is pink. I thought a more masculine looking golf bag might give him more street cred on the golf course. He has a lot of confidence for an 11 year old.
Scrap wood, I know…ho hum. But hey, I will use it and FREE IS FREE!
More scrap wood…..Perfect to have on hand for Chalkboards, etc.
I am surprised someone would let these pieces of art out of their hands! Doesn’t everyone want to hold on to their 1985 caricature pictures? Apparently Kristy and Nancy were over theirs.
This is not a bad looking frame, not a bad looking frame at all.
This is a large container of shelf supports. I am not quite sure why I took them. I am planning on putting in shelving in my garage, (afterifinishmyofficesomeday)
No, I am not expecting, at least not expecting anything that will arrive in 9 months. I was actually admiring the set of wheels on it! I might take the top off and replace with some smaller containers. Perfect paint caddie to wheel around my garage as I work!
Now I gotta get up early every morning
‘Cause the early bird always catches the worm
Now I gotta get up every morning
Gotta make up for the lesson I’ve learned
Gotta find me a Dumpster that isn’t over run with Others.
Gotta find me a Dumspter that won’t run the…..See Gap Band for original lyrics.
Hope your week is full of groovy junque.
