Everything is Disposable

A giant stuffed dog was popping out of a residential trash can. There are organizations that take gently used stuffed animals. I couldn’t tell the condition of this dog. Some kid won him at the ring toss at the state fair and now that he has outgrown the dog – even though it was bigger than him when he won it – his mom put it out in the trash.

Driving with the Windows Down

Even when it is 90 degrees I will drive with the windows open. And the air conditioning on too, of course. There is just something about hearing the wind rush by the car and breathing the fresh air that makes me rebel against the bubble nature of our car culture. I have to drive places, but open windows at least make me feel like I’m outside.
