Cleaned up 1 bag full today, 1 large item (which, ironically, was a trash can). Of note among today's catch is a thirty year old Pepsi can. It was right on the surface of the ground, near the sidewalk. It was also near a prairie dog hole, so perhaps a prairie dog turned up this little time capsule. It's badly crunched up, but the red and blue is still vibrant and the type legible. There's an circular emblem on the front with a "76" in it, "1876-1976" along the top and "Centennial" along the bottom. I think it may be noting the centennial of Colorado's statehood, as the background is blue mountains. On the reverse side of the can it says "CONGRATULATIONS DENVER NUGGETS 75-76 ABA REGULAR SEASON CHAMPIONS," and has a portrait of one Jimmy Foster, #16, Guard, 6'1" 180, Connecticut. A six-foot-one basketball player. Huh. It's the old style of pop can -- thicker aluminum, not tapered at the ends, with the small triangular opening that must have been difficult to drink from. I have previously found a similarly shaped Mountain Dew can that must be about the same age. This is why we should heed the proverb printed on the top of the Pepsi can and "DON'T LITTER," because it doesn't pick itself up. It will just sit there for THIRTY YEARS or until someone else cleans up after us. As for the can, I think I'll finally fulfill the other request printed on the top -- "PLEASE RECYCLE".
