Yesterday in America the day of Thanksgiving was observed, families, friends and workmates all gathered to give their heartfelt appreciation for all they are fortunate enough to have received.
People gather together and celebrate in the tradition of days gone past. The end result is dumpster gold. Trash cans all across America are full to the brims with the best food imaginable. I'm talking grandma's green bean specialty, yams with marshmallow sauce, ham, turkey in chunks the size of little dogs.
For the homeless and the dumpster divers this is the best time of the year, aside from Hanukkah and Christmas this as good as it gets. While being homeless is by no means what most people strive for there are two times when it's a little more bearable than usual.
I spoke to Randy, homeless for two years, he said, "it all filters down and let me tell you some of it ain't too bad. It's kinda like garbage diving at Spogo's, disgusting maybe, but seriously how bad can it be?
All across America today the homeless are in a old England style bountiful feast. It's a dumpster dive of delights.
