This is the one day of the year when Page-ites get together and clean up this one-horse town. This is also the day when many people try to put their own garbage into official "PAT" bags and turn them in for a free t-shirt. Sigh. This year was fun for two reasons; First, it was windy and frequently I saw pieces of trash blowing by and smacking people in the head. Perhaps they should have named it "Trash attacks Page"! The second reason it was fun was because my son Josh wrote an essay about the event as part of a city wide school assignment and he won first place. So he gets a hundred dollar savings bond from NGS and a big dinner in his honor. He's pretty stoked. Here's a video clip of his teacher telling us he won:
In house news, we're almost done. Which means I get to start playing in the sand. It will be an absolute miracle if I can get anything to grow but we'll give a good shot anyway.
