Garbage-Bin Face

In national parks and rural areas, many public facilities wisely use bear- and raccoon-proof garbage bins. The lids are heavy and latched; the latch release is hidden under a cover.

Well, sometimes these bins are bear- and raccoon-proof. These garbage-rummagers are smart, persistent, and remarkably handy with their paws.

Sometimes the bins are also Isabel-proof. Just sayin’. And not sayin’ what that might mean with respect to my smarts, persistence, or handiness with my paws.

Sometimes these bins have faces. Sometimes they have two, it being the viewer’s choice which set of bolts is seen as being the eyes. And whether you like your faces to have noses or just the hint thereof.
