I was listening to NPR last night as I crocheted my never ending thing. I listened to people tell stories. Wow. What an amazing idea and great stories. One story a woman told was about the new place they had bought out in the country because her husband wanted to be one with the land. After a few months they began to get sick. One day the woman started digging (for garden? Not sure) but she started digging up what looked look insulation and other debris. She found out the previous owner had been dumping garbage there for over twenty years. Since they now owned the land they were responsible for cleaning it up, at a cost of $1.5 million. You have to go to themoth.org to hear the rest.
My favorite story was from a man who talked about his grandmother and the start of his first job as a news reporter in Detroit. Brought tears to my eyes.
A great place to hang out, folks.
