ON THE BACK BURNER

Oct 21

It is a dubious distinction , but I just learned that we have the worse air quality in the world. The world.

Weather Underground was almost right. We woke up to a mist that qualified as rain. I did use my windshield wipers and lights when I drove to my volunteering job.It has helped a little with the air quality. We have few industries around us to blame this on. This pollution is from fires ! 

The people here, and probably most places, are very generous. When I was at Goodwill trying to get rid of an accumulation of cords, I felt it was my duty to go into  the store. There may have been something that I seriously needed. There was. A cast iron, enameled grill pan. In blue. All Goodwill's play a music tract in their stores. With Goodwill commercials. I kept hearing an announcement that if you were a member of the military or a family member, you qualified for a discount. You only needed to show your military card. Whatever that was. I put the message aside. When I checked out, the cashier asked if I was military. I said that my husband had been but that I  was not. I paid. And left. Later,I looked at my receipt. She gave me the  discount. I saved $2.10. That was sweet.
