Vacuum Canister Contents Search

Did you ever suck up a tiny toy piece when you ran the vacuum?

I carefully emptied the contents of the canister (is there any pile left in my red rug?) into a garbage bag, poked around with some pointy scissors. Not a fruitful search.

I did NOT find the little blue Playmobil nozzle end that fit the plastic firefighter’s hose.

I did find a wee drumstick, a knitting marker and a Lego light piece. That was all I could come up with. I should have put a penny down so you could see how small they were. Oh, I found a dusty Cheerio and a length of dental floss, too. Just dirt and dust and fibers. Yuck.

Two Upright Sweepers Wait for Pick Up

My family always called these vacuum cleaners but in Pennsylvania you “run the sweeper”.  These two are in Clintonville (Laura’s Neighborhood) when we walked on Saturday. The sun shone down on them as they stood at attention.

A portfolio of my work would be incomplete with the garbage studies.
