SATURDAY & SUNDAY

It was called Queen's Point,
but until "clean-up Saturday" it
looked more liJte Hell's Half-
looked more like Hell's Half-
acre. Beer cans, cigerette butts,
candy wrapers, chicken bones, and
broken glass littered the grassy
areas and sandy beaches. To overnight campers it was like making
home in the city dump. Garbage
cans had been provided by the
corps of engineers, but the cans
ers felt little urge to put their
litter in cans already overflowing.
Then Myke and Bob rolled up
their sleeves and organized a volunteer work detail. Two dozen
people showed up with rakes and
shovels and spent a happy/hard
two hours cleaning up the mess
that had been accumilating for
years and years. The back end
of a pickup truck, heaped with
trash, hauled it away.
Now the beach looks a lot
like Nature intended it.
Next weekend a gay artist has
agreed to paint the cans. (Would
lavender be a cool color?) Another
thoughtful gay girl will make signs
to place around the area to remind gay campers that ours is now
the cleanest beach on Lake Dallas.
No one is going to keep it clean
for us. Shall we do it ourselves?

We are reluctant to put down

this must be scraping the very bottom of the barrel. Is one so desperate for new thrills that one
