to cap it off



Remember your old bottle cap collection?

Here's Michael's.
He worked for weeks, gathering a dozen or so each time he'd go running in the nearby cemetery with Mark. He'd find them as we walked down the street, and collected from friends who had sodas.



He'd wash them and sort them and count all 135 of them.

But all too soon it grew old, and he gave the lot to the recycle man the other day.

Oh so this is why Ewan has been collecting all those bottle caps! If Michael would like a purpose for collecting some more Dee is looking for lots to do an activity at the Mental Health Hospital.

How much are they worth when you recycle them, Michael?

Hi 'Aunt' Kay! Actually, I just gave them for free to the recycle man. He can use the extra pesos more than I can.
