Nope, you could back a truck up to my outside bin:
As for trespassing thieves:
Just bury the bastards right away, that 's what a tractor with a backhoe is for !! :shock: :lol:

I caught a kid 'keying' a car in a parking lot.. it wasn't my car,, but I sat on him and had to 'subdue' him ocassionally untill the cops showed up. The cops tried to give me some *censored*,, untill my buddy, also a cop showed up, and straightend out the officers who responded to the original call..

I told the cops that they were damned lucky that they only needed their handcuffs, and not an ambulance.. my buddy shut me up and sent me home :mad:

That was decades ago, when I weighed about 25# more and had pants with a 4" smaller waist !! :shock: :lol:

I guess I'm lucky my impulsive temper hasn't got me in more trouble over the years..

Nope. I know most everybody around here, most are wood burners and one has a Pine Barren coal stove, he got invited in to see the EFM. They rest of them probably can't figure out why I'm out there every day with a shovel filling a bucket and carrying it into the house, but they might not even notice because they are too busy trying to figure out how to pay the oil bill. :D
