You haven't left yet, get your water gun and practice....and by the way, your sweetie just might be one of the posse.... Practice while you're away....we'll need accuracy since we're going to have to "hit and run" so to speak!

Maybe it a bit of me being a jerk about it, but I believe it'll at least make them think it through a bit the next time they do it. But then again, maybe not........



It also kinda makes me wonder a.) were they raised in a pigsty, b.) who picks up after them at home, and c.) just what DOES their home look like?

Most of the time, you're right, people will do the right thing, though sometimes you encounter someone who just don't care about anyone or anything but themselves. They might be the center of their world...and I wonder how they'd feel if you went to their home or room and just started littering.

Practice while you're away, we need you both on the squad...

HOORAY!!! Maybe with some practice, some of us could graduate to larger blasters! With water cannons, we'll need the polo field for practice....those babies can really send out a torrent!

While up north, get a squirt gun and practice. We'll gather together as a group when you return. Those of us who remain in TV will have practice at the archery range on the historical side.
So, where does one sign up for this posse?????

Pooh, you know my 11 yr old granddaughter and she will join the posse. She loves TV and every summer when she is visiting I have to bring a "trash" bag when we drive around in the golf cart. If she sees a piece of trash in TV, she has to pick it up. She also cannot understand how anyone can be so careless to liter. She can be your "double agent" and infiltrate the litter criminals.

Nah, I think this is a woman's job. You guys would be too soft and feel sorry for the teeny-boppers (or think they're just too cute to get wet). Hmm ... cute teens, bikini tops, water. Nope, definitely no guys on this one.

I'll make badges, post them here, you can print them out and then you are officially a member of THE POSSE!

I was thinking, for our motto, Drop that trash, We'll get your **s? Too much?.....

Wow, hadn't thought of throwing "bombs!" Those might be good for repeat offenders or those that leave a large pile of debris in their wake!

(Thanks about the pic...that little one is now almost 9 years old!)

Unforuunately, this is the type of behavior that encourages people to move to TV from other areas. You can observe this type of behavior by kids and adults in most cities.
