Piles

That word makes me smile. My brothers have a way of saying it that makes you think of boy humor. I smile today because the piles are gone! I can see my street again. Parking is easier. Now maybe the sunday-driving scavengers are in retirement. Neighborhood cleanup is good but the piles get old. I'm always amazed to see what filth comes out of people's homes and even more amazed to see the scavengers gather it up.

I'm a fan of "cluster", nothing more, nothing less.

piles = cluster
cluster = piles

i do like the sound of that much better. isn't it the name of a candy bar? or was it a cereal? i seem to remember a bunch of squirrels in an ad.

That commercial must have really grabbed you.....from Post Cereals...

"Post Honey Bunches of Oats cereal is one of America’s favorite breakfast cereals. With delicious, crunchy oat(key word >>) clusters (<< key word)and three kinds of flakes, every spoonful tastes unique."
