If someone has a drinking problem, that’s their business.
If someone wants to throw their empty bottles in my neighborhood, then it becomes my business.
During this dry spring season, water levels are down in our lakes and with it brings washed up debris on its muddy banks.
While taking a walk, I couldn’t help by notice small bottles of wine scattered lakeside on Woodlands Boulevard near the country club. Many more empty bottles were lying in the grass, as if the person throwing them had missed the lake.
I collected about nine empty bottles, however, there were many more in the lake resembling the aftermath of a “mini-bar” party.
I have a few theories about who is drinking and tossing the bottles: They could be a resident or an employee of the country club driving to or from work each day tossing their contraband out of their window. It would have to be in the early morning hours or after dark as someone would surely witness this. They could also be a golf course maintenance worker hiding their daily stash in their clothing, disposing of them by throwing them off their mower in this particular area of the golf course.
Whoever they are, I’ll be keeping my eyes open for this worthless wino who is littering our neighborhood. If they can’t stop drinking wine on the job or in their car, then the least they can do is properly dispose of their bottles.
Here’s a clue: They have a particular taste for Sutter Home wine.
UPDATE: Another bottle found on May 2nd
