So far, 18 quarts of tomato sauce and another 18 quarts of tomato juice and another 20 quarts of soup starter (mixed with onions and such)… Tomatoes! Lots can be saved from the Soup Kitchen Dumpster, especially if items don’t quite yet make it to the dumpster! These tomatoes were donated since they had been hit by a frost, after which they go bad pretty quickly if not used right away. It’s already snowed about 10 days ago just up the mountain range, setting an all time record for this area. Yikes!
Jumping a vehicle at the soup kitchen:
Filling the gas tank with one of those famous milk cartons[!] and a rolled up magazine. I never would have imagined. Very cool! Um… Don’t try this at home. And don’t use newspaper!

Unending are the trips to the soup kitchen, cleaning the dumpter area, collecting compost, having a bite to eat, delivering meals. Jenny came along this time, as someone said that the trip would do her good. They worst thing, it was said, is for her to go up the mountain and back down, just short trips. She needs to get out in the open for the sake of the engine about once a week. O.K. She’s not too comfortable on the Highway, but she’s happy to be such a fright to look at that all and sundry give her a wide berth. I had to smile when some very rich gentlemen stood in awe of her in a particular parking lot in town. Hah! Maybe it was the rosary hanging on the just hanging on rear view mirror!
