Sustainable Solutions: Ball Point Pen Drive (…only in Ashfield!)
Notes from Nan: Help Support the Elmer’s Ball Point Pen Drive!
Every morning we start out with a stack of ballpoint pens for the waitresses to use and every night they’re gone. We think we know where they are.
We think you got ‘em.
We think you take them home with you. (Look in your car. Look in your pocket. Look in your hair and behind your ears. See? You got ‘em.)
So we would like for you to go through your junk drawer and pull out all the pens that are in there that you haven’t used in 15 years and bring them back to us! And then, when you sign your credit card slip, you can forget and take it home with you again! And we will continue to recycle pens throughout the town for years and years! It’s a perfect sustainable solution!
And otherwise, come see us for breakfast!
I would write more, but it’s really pretty out, it’s Mardi Gras Day (the only annual day I find it really, really hard not to be in New Orleans) and I got to go outside—instead of doing my taxes. I remember living in New Orleans and people from the Outside would call that day and I remember standing there answering the phone in my huge finery, saying, “Are you kidding? It’s Mardi Gras!” How could they not know? Now I know, except that I am acutely aware of it.
We’ll have organic ashes for your forehead in the bulk bin on Wednesday.
Happy Mardi Gras!
