Every little bit....

I followed a few environmental blog links today and found myself commenting on one that had discussed how the parties involved kept their plastic plates at a conference to reuse rather than to just discard. Sounds like something I would do. She asked if it was, so I responded about some of our adventures, here.

Is he a helper?

Or a hinderer?

I'm proud to say he IS mastering the difference between green and red and now happily helps pick the RED ones. Way to go buddy!
