It is something which our lives would be horrible without. The kids wanted a few of the twisted wind doohickeys to hang on the porch and the trees. As I watched it twist and turn, it really was enchanting. A simple twisted 50 cent piece of plastic, and it held our attention and amused us. Either we are REALLY bored, or it was sort of fascinating to watch. Either way- it's fun. It just goes to show that SO much of what is all around us is overlooked and not thought of in our daily routines. As I look around the room as I type on the plastic keyboard, I cannot imagine what life without plastic would be!
