I watch the ripples change their size, but never leave the stream of warm impermanent sand. So the days flow through my eyes but still the days seem the same. And these children that you spit on as they try to change their world are immune to your consultations. They're quite aware of what they're going through.

Um, I know I've posted alot of Laverne and Shirley lately, but I had the pics on file and needed to get rid of them.. I don't think there are anymore.

We still get "Paper or plastic" asked of us at the local IGA.

I ask for paper bags when I forget to bring my own, and usually get them. They're good for holding paper recycling.

Is there really such thing as too much Laverne and Shirley? Really, Joe. ;)

Retro: Not up here.

Freida: Haha I guess not ;^)

They used to have paper bags in our store up until a few years ago. My aunt still can get them in her grocery store and saves some for us to put our recyclable papers in.

I get paper bags from a grocery store right down the street from us. It's called Market Street (part of the United grocery store chain.) I live in a suburb right outside of Dallas.
They are the good paper bags, too. The ones with handles!!

First off, NEVER enough Laverne & Shirley. Second, Cracker Barrel still has paper bags.

Everyone: I remember covering my school books using paper bags. We always had a stack of paper bags in the house.

I don't think my Wegman's has paper but the Acme I go to at times still does.

Yep, around here they give you choice, paper, plastic or use your own cloth one you brought.

In Florida you get asked "paper or plastic".

Hey: how about this. Does anyone remember paper straws... the kind you use to drink soft drinks, which are now all made out of plastic. In the '70s, there were both paper straws and plastic straws. The paper ones would eventually wilt into mush if you took too long to finish your drink.

Teri: Hmm, up here it's just plastic.

Noe: So are you a "plastic or paper" kind of gal. Personally, I'd choose paper since every piece of plastic ever made is still in existance.. at least paper biodegrades. Plus, try making a schoolbook cover with a plastic bag. I dare you.

Ann: Well, I guess i'm the only one on this page who doesn't..

Anon: Hey I forgot all about those. They had colored stripes, if I remember correctly.

I usually bring my own reusable bags, but I've seen a few people in the parking lot of the local Albertson's who have their groceries in paper bags.
