"You know you've been to the islands" ornament by boocartledge

I've been over at zazzle making Christmas ornaments that show off the Lake Erie islands - but I couldn't resist showing this aspect of island life. If you live on any coast anywhere in the world, you know that fish carcasses and entrails and bones rank with the smelliest substances on earth. Also, dogs love to roll in them. Imagine owning a cottage or beach house that you rent out and, every week of your life during the summer season, having to rid your refrigerators and garbage cans of the smell of long-dead fish.
As a slogan, it doesn't set the world on fire, but when I saw this garbage can this summer I knew I needed a photo of it.
