Seniors were green before green was hip
By Byron McNutt

It’s no surprise the world is changing in these times of Google, Facebook, Twitter and Apple, otherwise known as the era of the social media. There is a striking disconnect from generation to generation. Here’s an example of “the green thing.”
In the checkout line at the grocery store, the young cashier told an older woman, who was a very young 60, that she should bring her own grocery bags because plastic bags aren’t good for the environment.
The woman apologized to her and explained, “We didn’t have ‘the green thing’ in my day.”

That was great Byron and brought back memories of my first self-employment at 8-years-old with my older brother. When we needed a quarter for the larger white league-size rubber ball, we'd cruise the alleys in our Chicago neighborhood for pop bottles - 2 cents for 12oz. and a whole nickel for the quarts!
