Be the Cool Neighbor and place it somewhere that is protected from the wind (behind a tree, under a bench) D. Be the Neighbor Everyone Wants But Rarely Wants To Be and bring it back to the house. Place it on the side, in the corral or behind the fence. And definitely don’t be E. The Jerk Neighbor that takes the trash can, repaints it and uses it next week.
