And we can’t just blame those people from other parts of town, just driving through Los Feliz; if property owners and businesses would only keep the area in front of their places down to the curb clean every day our trashy date would not be so exhausting!
“Would you like to go on a trashy date? How is next Tuesday”, Chris asks me. “You’ve got a deal! I’ll bring everything we need; 9 AM OK?”- my response. If that sounds somewhat risqué, it’s not; because Chris Laib and I do go out there during the week–any week–to rid our beautiful neighborhood of unsightly debris; we take down all illegally posted signs from public property and paint out graffiti. We spend about 2 to 3 hours on clean-up and wish people would not throw their cigarette butts and their trash on the street but find a proper receptacle.
