I always loved animals and it is for this reason none of our food scraps
ever ended up in the garbage or the garburator.
There was always someone to eat it.
Dogs are the best garburators and they get their fill of carrots potatoes and peas.
One of our dogs waited for his two pieces of toast every morning.
My parents also liked the black breads and breads full of grains. They are heavy kind of breads.
We also had the best rye bread where we lived.
My parents would sit at the table and cut up his 2 buttered pieces into fours and feed them one by one.
He knew when his four pieces were eaten up and then he'd be happy and go lie down.
But he also knew if he was short changed too lol You couldn't fool him lol
The dogs also liked left over warm soup being poured over their dog food and they were all strong healthy dogs.
Vets always frown when you say you feed dogs people food. To me the only good reason to do this is for when you travel. So much easier with dry dog pebbles. But some dogs can only eat dry dog food or get the runs. This is where the heinz 57 are much better than pure bred dogs. They eat everything and have less problems.
One story was a funny one.
My husbands sister took her dog to the vet often. This dog ate bread and cheese his whole life.
When she told the vet this, she always got a lecture so one day she told him she took his advice and now the dog ate the best brand dog food at $18.00 dollars a bag and suddenly his fur became nicer and he looked in much better condition according to the vet. lol
Of course it wasn't true. The dog hated dog food and ate only bread and cheese and lived to be 18.lol
Over all, through time, I always loved the idea of recycling and we now have 3 garbage cans.
One for garbage like all the plastic bags and styrofoam we can"t seem to avoid not buying
another for recyclable cans bottles juice boxes and another for organics like the leaves you rake.
At first I thought my God, what a bother and more dirt to clean because these cans have to be cleaned but then I realized any organics can be wrapped up in paper and really they should be put into a
box outside and let the worms turn it into good soil for the garden. I should get to it and put a few outside
I some how never liked the garburator and the idea all this was going into some waterway.
It can be reused on your own property.
Well today I have socks to match. I have so many single socks and have been spending the last week trying to find the other socks. Today I found a bag full of single socks so maybe they will match the ones I have already collected lol Soccer socks collect over the years. Nice long socks which they change along with the uniform. So now unworn, maybe my husband can wear them if my son doesn't. As you age, parents get the hand me downs from these now bigger fussier kids. lol
