bookofjoe's Favorite Thing: TrashStik โ€” Trash pickup stick taken to the max


Tons of magnolia tree leaves fall on my gravel driveway, sometimes so densely they form a kind of carpet.

They can be slippery when wet.

I've been picking up the leaves by bending over for each one for nearly 33 years and I must say that as a Medicare card-carrying geezer, sometimes that makes my back ache, no matter that I'm still running half-marathons and whatnot.


Anyhoo, I happened on this tool recently and bought one and just road tested it, as it were: excellent.


Like the peel-to-size window shades featured here last Friday, it's fun to use.

That's the mark of a great tool or item.

But I digress.




One last thing: wear shoes when you use this puppy โ€”


those stainless steel tines are sharp!

I have a grabber for picking up the random garbage.
