You Know You've Arrived When...

You have an account here?

Au contraire! We here at Provident Heritage Farm, Inc. prefer to appear on the local landfill rosters!

Apparently we're "regulars" because when we pulled in this morning, Paco merely paused to be weighed and then headed on in! It felt so posh! Apparently our vehicle is allowed to bring in 4 tons a year! Let's see 4 tons times 7 billion...put down the one and carry the...sheesh. Mugsy and I could NOT resist making up a "Going to the Dump-pa-da-dump!" song! I remember going to the dump with my dad. He'd back up dangerously close to the edge, and I'd squeal! And then in the winter, the dump road was our favorite sledding hill. My friend Denny had an old refrigerator door we'd all hop on! Somebody's dad would haul us up the road, and down we'd barrel! Chili and hot chocolate at somebody's kids still do this???? I had a missionary friend--he became an attorney I think--who had a job at the dump in Salt Lake City before his mission. Oh, the stories he'd tell. I'll bet he had more fun there than he's having as a lawyer. I'm thinking my grandkids would love a trip to the dump some time! I know I'm going back again! "Where everybody knows your name! And they're always glad you came!"

I bet the kids would love a trip to the dump. I'm not that into jewelry. I don't own very much of it and I don't wear very much of it. The few things I do own are simple and small (some even from Tiffany's), with that being said I LOVE LOVE LOVE to walk around Tiffany's. Is that weird that someone who doesn't really even enjoy jewelry LOVES Tiffany's? I don't really enjoy trash either, so maybe I would LOVE the dump too!

I have many fond memories of going to the dump with my dad when I was little.

I took my girls to the dump for the very first time a few weeks ago. My 4-year-old Ellie inquired, "Why is it so dirty here? People should put their garbage in a garbage can!"
