We are a world with a ‘throw away mentality’. Remember when in most homes, stuff lasted forever? If a boy wore out a collar, mama quickly pulled the stitches and reversed it. The same with cuffs. If mama couldn’t do it Aunt Ruby or someone could. Shoes were resoled until the tops were worn out.Well I was born to fix stuff!
I am a throw back. I hate to see something thrown away that can be repaired. RV’ers are resourceful, they know someone may use what they do not want. So at the dumpster they leave something that is broke and they cannot fix sitting outside the dumpster. Two days ago I took the trash to the dumpster and came back with another little ceramic heater.
I enjoy tinkering, All this one needed was a new or repaired power cord. So now after about 30 minutes of playing, we have a spare electric heater. To me, THAT IS ENJOYMENT. Now we have an electric heater in the rear of the motor home I found last year at the same dumpster and one awaiting use in the basement.
Mark came over for my Birthday and mentioned he needed a little heater. So now it is being used over in Palm Bay.
On a trip tonight to the dumpster, I found another electrical appliance. Tomorrow’s fun.
Worn out socks make the ideal thing to clean and shine out tile floors here in the RV. I am definitely a rag collector as I have mentioned before.
Thanks for stopping by the log nice to have you.
Animals are the real recyclers. Nests use many things as you find out finding them. Sister Kat always cut her hubby’s hair, the hair was always placed at the edge of the woods for birds and their nests.
Again, more unusual vehicles:
That looks like the forerunner of the three wheel motor cycles today with two front wheels. (Or the Morgan car).
