Made lots of lemonade today

When life gives you lemons, you make lemonade.

When life gives you an SUV, you haul crap to the dump!

I decided to make use of this rental Ford Exploder and hauled an old, broken recliner and an ancient dishwasher to the Escondido trash transfer station. They charged me $30 to dump it all. If I'd had them pick it up from the house, they'd have charged me $150.

The recliner had been sitting in the garage for several months. When I shoved it into the SUV, a mummified mouse fell out of the bottom of the chair. Eeew.

Now I need to clean the spot on the floor where the portable dishwasher used it sit. It had been sitting there since my grandfather had a new floor installed about 10 years ago, so it's kinda nasty there. Gonna need lots of mopping. Eeew.
