    People are generally nice, if I see someone, I ask if I can look. Never been turned down. Some will actually help me look.

    3 dollars on Europes best? Our Redplum in BC only had 2 dollars. Now I feel a little bit shafted!

    Nice collection you got there though. That was a very fruitful walk.

    Happy Anniversay to you!!!!! And WOW, you did so fantastic!!! I was thinking of you last week while I was watching my local news. They had a piece on there about people going through the garbage and recycle bins of other people, and in Calgary apparently it is against the law. It doesn't matter whether the bins are sitting in the alley for garbage pick up, or the big bins for apartment buildings, it's illegal. Could you see it " Army_girl in court, faces charges of pilfering papers from recycle bins" Sometimes I think that the people who make these laws have nothing better to do with their time.
