Keeping our Town clean
Flickr acting up today and have been having trouble trying to post this.
I've been out delivering traps and the scarecrow this afternoon and while I was dropping off traps, I came across this message on the side of a bin centre. While it's a nice reminder, it also made me think.
Someone just showed me some photos taken in Ladakh, in Nepal the other day and there are signs by the side of the road. The signs though remind people to smile and to have a good day - it isn't a campaign to remind people to be polite or to smile a certain way for any reason. It's just to remind people not to forget certain things in life.
I also noted that in what we think of as a third world country, in every one of the photos with people in them, they were all smiling genuinely. I have to say the surroundings weren't particularly clean either.
It does make one ponder - maybe there are more important things that being 'clean' all the time.
