Paper or Plastic?

This is just the coolest thing...a shopping bag made of shopping bags!!!! From my friend Barb, who comes up with the latest of things. Thank you Barb! Now I don't have to make that dreaded decision at the check-out counter anymore.

I'm adding a funny excerpt from an email from Barb L... for those of us who are in a permanent befuddled state from all the new stuff we are bombarded with.... read on

"The world is just getting too complex for me. They even mess me up every
time I go to the grocery store. You would think they could settle on
something themselves but this sudden "Paper or Plastic?" every time I
check out just knocks me for a loop. I bought some of those cloth
reusable bags to avoid looking confused
but I never remember to take them in with me.

Now I toss it back to them. When they ask me, "Paper or Plastic?" I just
say, "Doesn't matter to me. I am bi-sacksual." Then it's their turn to
stare at me with a blank look".

I'm having a special guest this weekend, my canadagarden daughter. She gets here today on the Amtrak. I hope you will have a happy Wednesday too.

I love the shopping bag. I try to use the recycled ones often but sometimes forget to take them along. Now I try to put them back in the car when I empty them. Have fun with your daughter. I check her blog often. She has a wonderful place there. You can tell she takes after her mom.
