Grandpappy the Trash Heap

Remember Marjorie the Trash Heap from Fraggle Rock? MuppetWiki tells us that “the Trash Heap knows all and sees all.”

A sort of garbage oracle. Our trash heap had been in residence for decades, although moved and consolidated a few times. I figure we had Marjorie’s cousin in our backyard. I called him Grandpappy, because he saw so much over so many years, and he frequently coughed up strange objects – an old rusty toy jeep, a sign from a contractor, a magic wand, packing crates from a long-gone 1800s neighbor signed in that old-fashioned handwriting. I saved a few things, but for the most part … Marjorie’s relation is now in the landfill.

Here’s a time lapse –

  3. yuck. that was quite a job–and in the rain? I don’t envy you! but now it’s done and you can move on.

  7. GMom – LOL We call that thing “the door to nowhere.” Must have been a two-story porch there a hundred years ago … literally.
