You know what they say about Texas, everything is bigger and better. I didn't say that, they say that. My picture is sooo big I probably won't ever get a comment again. Its my cacti and I can leave it if I wanna. I started out to post a little recycle tag and nominate Kelli from Thoughts Of A Sober White Women as the top recycler. As usual I started out to do one thing and ended up doing something else and overdoing it. Oh well I have fun. I whole heartedly agree with Kelli recycling is very important and if she could see the room behind the garage here she would know I save boxes to use a second time. Would you believe at one time I picked up cans off the side of the street in my neighborhood in San Antonio? Knowing me you would believe it wouldn't you? My oldest daughter belonged to a teen organization at Joske's Of Texas an exclusive department store, no longer in business. One of the rules to continue she had to collect a certain amount of aluminum cans every month for charity. As a high school band member she had to spend so many hours at the band hall plus school work etc. there was not enough time so I took on the task of collecting the aluminum cans. Not only was it good exercise it was helping my daughter and helping charity after they sold the cans collected by the whole organization. Recently I started saving my plastic for the recycling truck. I never realized how many products we use comes in plastic. I even threw my top-up card for my phone in there this morning. We can fill one of the square containers almost every week, just the two of us. I can imagine what a family can do. Thank you Kelli for reminding me to work harder to pay attention to what I am discarding into the land fill. Our children and grandchildren's future depend on our decision today.
