Recycling is a big thing today. Using the things we have for some other purpose once they have served their original purpose.
(OK now Listen-up!)
For years utility/farm trailers were made from old car and truck rear ends, axles and wheels. Old inner tubes were kept for tire boots or sling-shot rubbers. I have mentioned, no shoes goes to the trash with shoe strings or leather tongues, I save ‘em. Now, no scrap of wood goes to waste, it is saved for a camp-fire.
(After this story this book goes to the outhouse, ok?)
Truthfully, I no longer save and straighten nails . I do save all used screws though. With mama, all cloth scraps were saved for patches and quilting.
(Shirl’s first kiss,the pig had just brushed its teeth!)
I save ALL magnets. You can recycle paper in many ways. Reuse it until all writing/note space is used. Throw it in the recycle bin or send it to the dump. It is good for the soil and helps to neutralize some hazardous waste that is miss handled. DO NOT USE typing paper or Catalogs in a flush toilet. It is good to use in out houses however. (A little slick but you get used to it!!!)
(Nap time or black and white sandwich)
Some businesses are returning to paper cups because the Styrofoam doesn’t deteriorate fast enough. Really is a good idea, but I hate those card board sleeves at Star Bucks and similar Coffee shops.

I wish someone could come up with an efficient incinerator for ALL our garbage. One that would use the heat to generate steam that could generate electricity. My friend VonDale installed these things for awhile, he said one big problem came from the steel belted tires with the steel creating jams and stopping production.
(So I told mommy……)
I understand Mexico City has an incinerator with a very long conveyor belt. Using intensive human labor to pick and sort things for recycling before the furnace. Sounds like a good idea to me. Of course the smell is offensive to some folk who would be too finicky to work there.
(Whew, that finally worked!)
Recycling is a fact of life now. We all need to do it, trash has become a major problem. I would like to see the trash dumped and become part of our interstate road beds. I think the Interstates should widen the center and use that area for trash dumps, or land fills as they are called today.
Getting close to New Years, think good thoughts and tip a little extra if you go out.
(Was I going to say anything else, Yeah, the pictures are just because I like ‘em)
PS: (I think me and Live Writer are on speaking terms again, I am saying less bad words!)
You miss 100 percent of the shots you never take. (Think about that one a little bit!)
