amen to that, Sister!I always say this about the older generation. Younger people think they are the ones that came up with reduce, reuse, and recycle. Older folks lived with that motto. My dad is almost 90. His generation and my grandparents and my mom’s family all were dirt poor. They never threw anything away. They farmed and vegetable scraps fed chickens and hogs. Flour sacks were made into aprons. If you torn an older building down (usually that was falling apart), you scrapped everything you could to rebuild with. We could definitely learn from them.
