Yesterday, I pulled into the parking lot of "The Boy's" school. It was the first day of school and I was to pick him up since his mother, "The Ogre", had to work. In the parking lot there is a large bin for paper recycling. I had some newspapers & magazines that I had saved up for the first time I was by there. I make sure this is the only paper recycling bin that I use so my grandson's school will get the profits from it.
But I digress. Shortly after I placed my stuff in the bin, two boys came out of the school carrying a large tote of papers from their classroom. After they dumped the tote, one of the boys looked back into the bin. Spotting the two Sports Illustrated amongst the items that I had recycled, he leaned in to fish them out. His friend asked "What ARE you doing?" He responded "Cool! Look what I found!" as he smiled from ear to ear as he waved the magazines over his head.
It made my day to see the joy on his face that resulted from some recycled magazines.
