I used to hang around the grocery store waiting for a woman to buy baby
food. Then I'd follow her home with a view toward collecting the empty baby
After being jailed three times, I abandoned that plan.
Speaking of jail- if you recycle scrip pill bottles, especially to someone
else, be sure to soak the labels off, or at least obliterate them with a
permanent marker, along with washing the container with soap. If you are
carrying a controlled-substance scrip bottle, even an empty one, and you
happen to piss off a cop, such things are used to come up with probable

world we live in now. I'd recommend 35mm film canisters, instead. Most

Carnation Malted Milk to put the glass bottle in (with foam rubber
padding) so I won't break it in the next few years.
I have a working laser printer for which another toner cartridge would
cost 135 dollars!. I'm hoping I can find toner in a broken printer
that looks like the toner this one uses. I have another working laser
printer except the fuser (a heating bar) is broken. Hoping to find a
fuser in some other printer, or a surplus store. And I'm back to
using the BJ-200 that I bought more than 10 years ago** , along with a
BJC-2000 for the rare times I want to print color.
**works fine, although I had to replace the little black 0-ring that
moves the paper out.
