Just in case anyone is interested, the recent dumpster rental is the end of a project that started back in July 2011 when a friend came and smashed our falling-down outbuilding (which was a private menace, if not a public one):
There was still a lot of debris left when he carted off the big pieces of metal. Kansas Dad cleaned it up a bit here and there, but he really needed to rent a dumpster to just take care of the rest. (In the end, it also required a sledgehammer; every project is better when a sledgehammer is involved.) The dumpster came and went and now nearly all the mess is gone!!
I should show you a picture of what it looks like now, but it's pretty much a plain piece of concrete. I'm not sure what we'll do with it, but we're tossing around ideas like a basketball hoop. At the very least, it's a good place to use our sidewalk chalk and now there's little chance of large pieces of metal falling down on us.
