Environmentalism is treated as the most deranged, anti-business, anti-social kind of sociopathic craziness possible. I'm not exactly a Greenpeace or Sierra Club member, but this still kind of bugs me.I couldn't agree more. I am a pretty politically conservative person, but I have always considered myself an environmentalist. I come from a family of ranchers/farmers who are very environmentally focused. After all, their living comes from the environment. I feel that the term environmentalist has been hijacked, so to speak, by some radicals which makes the rest of us a little uncomfortable with the label. We have to protect what we have and should do so passionately, but extremism seldom helps win people over. Just my $.02 . Harry
My mom is still trying to get me and my brothers to get all of our stuff out of the house. The bad part is that we are all in our 50's! My middle brother finally got his 1968 Triumph 650 out of her garage that has been there for 35 years!!! Harry
Can't blame my mom for that one, though I wasn't too happy that she tossed my baseball card collection when I went to college. Of course, whose mom didn't do that?
Exactly. You leave it behind, it's a fair sacrifice for the great yard sale gods! My old room is now my mom's sort of "all around" room, (den, sewing room, movie room, etc). Bye bye, Raggedy Ann & Andy, hello Fabio workout videos!
Yeah, That happened to me too. That's also what we did with our kid's stuff, as well. When I was growing up, we were a military family. We moved about every two or three years , so a lot of stuff either was given to charities, friends or thrown away. My nephew now has my Matchbox cars collection and Tonka toys and my youngest brother still has my baseball cards from the 50's and 60's that i gave him years ago. HarryI also had collection of Hot Wheels--too bad I don't know what happened to them.
Well, if you're like me, you moved out & your mom sold them in a yard sale for ten cents each...
