August’s featured fiction is The Magic Trash Can by Tom Jolly.
~When William and Anna bought their place on ten acres, they had no idea how much maintenance was involved, even if the unused acres were left to grow wild. They were both in their seventies, and even minor work wore them out. It was pretty, but it was hard. The oak trees constantly shed small branches, and poison oak wanted to take root everywhere there was a bit of shade, making cleanup more difficult.~
