I see Chupa's on the job.

I've seen waterproof totes made of dog food bags. Quite enterprising, I thought.

What a shame, feedsacks used to be made from material that could be resewn into clothing. Grandmother used to make pajama sets for all the grandkids.

Are you sure, are you reallly sure it was 76 and not 75 or 77???

That's what I thought Dale. I remember the pretty food bag cloth from pictures.

I just talked to my daughter in the D.C. area. Snow falling-on all the news. Ho hum since she grew up by the Canadian border--lotsa snow.

Mother used to make all my school shirts out of feed sacks. Her everyday dresses were made from feed sacks. The local recycle center does take the paper feed sack along with cardboard. My 70 year old body is glad that feed does not come in 100 pound sacks as it did at one time. I am amazed how quickly the recycle bins fill. Especially the junk mail, it is a sad indication of our throw away society.

Feed sack clothes from pedal powered Singer sewing machines ... part of the good ol' days for sure.
