Big news today, groovy freedomists. Our good friend Fritz over at The Retirement Manifesto was invited to a Stacking Benjamins‘ roundtable and he DOMINATED IT. Just check out the link below and find out for yourself. Joe, Doug, and Joe’s mom will never be the same.
And once you’re done listening to Fritz exchange barbs with Jamila and Len Penzo, you can watch another episode of Talking Trash with Mr. Groovy. In the below video, I’m picking up trash in Crooked Creek Park again. And while I’m picking up that wonderful Tar Heel refuse, I explain how Linda from Brooklyn Bread inspired me to be a better steward of my time. Enjoy.
To paraphrase a supposed quote from Abraham Lincoln, “No American is so tall as when he or she stoops to pick up trash.” And no one better exemplifies this civic spirit than Claudia from Two Cup House. She was recently in Chickies Rock County Park on litter patrol and she came across a container of stage blood (see picture below). Yep, that’s right—stage blood. I’ve heard of Shakespeare in the Park, but I’ve never heard of Walking Dead in the Park. Thanks for sharing, Claudia. You know, picking up trash is like a box of chocolates (guffaw, guffaw). You never know what you’re gonna find.
Okay, groovy freedomists. That’s all I got. May your weekend be filled with the tranquility of a hammock repose or the debauchery of a Roman bacchanal. It’s your call. Grease for peace.
