There are many reasons where they don’t like us binning in their alleys. Most of all it would reason like these, spreading garbage and defecating in the alleys and around dumpsters that don’t help the issue.

This friendship could end if Ellen would somehow where see her lovely face on my Blog, however she has been a big part of my life always giving me a safe place to indulge in some of my guilty pleasure. Ellen always has endless gossip yak about every time that I take to spend with her. I remember year’s back that she made the best soup out a bin and in the back alleys as anyone could make keeping us warm and healthy through some of those cold winter months that street life brings to are lifestyle. Where this woman gets all her bottles from I could not guess, I have yet to see Ellen climb into a bin… The hardest thing that one has with Ellen’s friendship is giving back to her without getting anything back in return takes a real sly, tricking attitude. You must be quick. I have known Ellen for years and she is always one step ahead of me.
