In the park across the way, we’ve been seeing huge Tyvek bags filled with leaves and dead branches that the Parks Department workers plan to haul away to compost. They’re so big, we wonder how they pick them up. We guess it would take two men to haul them onto a truck.

They’re about the size of the load of hay this French woman has balanced on her head. Ahh yes, BALANCE will handle just about anything.

We’d really like to learn to carry things on our head…so convenient…Got to try it, get the hang of it, practice.
