Dromey Heeter's Down to Earth
A birthday party at a landfill? It'll be fun and earth-friendly
Lilly will turn 11 and we'll bring "Dirt," a concoction of gummy worms and Oreo cookies by which to celebrate her day with her classmates. We'll sing "Happy Birthday" before we go on the tour of the landfills and gain an appreciation of the massive operation that is, indeed, the management of waste. And as we celebrate Lilly and our wonderful outing, we'll learn and practice the myriad of ways to recycle.
Last year, at a craft fair, I had a "Make an Offer Table" and a friend was thrilled when she found my red Brooks Brothers wrap, offered 10 bucks. She wore it the rest of the day. Have I ever missed that wrap? Nope. When I bought it, I'd imagined wrapping myself in it as I took trans-Atlantic flights to Paris. Truth is, I've not been to Paris for a very long time and a red Brooks Brothers wrap is just a bit much for my trans-town trips to Market Basket.
