Dede, I know you will do what you can.
The euro pro was old, and is off at a local appliance place to get a look see. I ordered new as well, they are half what they were before.
Karen, nice to hear you are up and around, to say the least. Is St. Loius hot ?
I am not sure recycling is a word I should borrow for what I do with left over cottons, but if you have any, I can put them to good use. I wash them, bleach them if I can, and make them all scrunchy and friendly. See if you can dig any out of your stash of leftovers, natural color is the best to bleach up. Email me if you have any to sacrifice. It will do good.
