Twice now I have filled up three wire bins (one shown here) and twice a couple of guys have indeed carted it away in a town truck. So my plan is working.
While I was raking over there one day last week, a neighborhood friend came by. She was wearing a baseball cap that said "F of H P." It stands for "Friends of Harold Parker" -- Harold Parker State Park, that is, which is partly in Andover and partly in North Andover. She does volunteer work for the organization. But I realize I could wear the same hat myself, because the same initials could stand for "Friend [singular] of Hussey's Pond." That's me.
