I like doe in heat, reminds me of the cold nights in the U.P.
I drove into Marquette last week and there is a new sign on the city limits.
It read, Welcome to Marquette where the men are men and the women are too.

I used to work with a guy who had a set of routes he took to work everyday. He knew what he was looking for like old magazines & other stuff that sells well at antique stores.

Made about $1000 per month off of his quirky hobby.

I'm remodeling my house and sat my old toliet out by my trash can by my other building supplies a couple weeks ago. I see some old guy in a shiny new golf cart pull up and he's rifling through the top of my old toilet,(mind you this is after said old beater truck went through and put all metal items in his truck). I live by the lake and chances are this guy has a huge ass house right on the waterfront as a "cottage" with multiple $50+K vehicles parked out front while riding in his $3500 golf cart. Here he is pulling a piece from the top of my old toilet. The guy can probably write a check and buy everything I own on the spot so I'm thinking WTF? He rendered my old toliet useless with his shenanigans so I shall find this guys house and I will deposit my now non functional toilet out in his front yard with a sign stating, "You take a piece from my old shitter, you get the whole thing!" I know he can't move it because he couldn't pick it up when he was moving it around. He also got some of the 15+ yr old wax ring on his hand when he was prodding around where my poop came out of the toilet. I shall find this man's yard and dress it up with a nice used toilet!!!

May depend on how much room they have at the time?

He was about to get back on the truck and I yelled out the front door "hey thats means put them in the back of your truck stupid!''. He just gave me the finger and didn't pick up my trash the following week. So to answer your question I had to take them to work and throw them in our dumpster.
We have to buy a $6.50 sticker for ANYthing that doesn't fit in the green can they provide.

probably best to do during deer season. nothing easier than picking off bucks that are humping your trash can.
