* From Rochester to Saskatoon - 3,078 Kilometres to Help Give a Cow

Fred and Suzanne have beat out Jeff Wisniewski from Pittsburgh by 227 kilometres to be the farthest point away from Saskatoon helping Give a Cow.

Fred - the hero

Thanks to Fred and Suzanne for helping to "give a cow". Suzanne describes her adventures into the world of bottle diving as follows:

omg! :) I came in armed wi/ a big bag this morning, ready to dumpster-dive - (and I did some of that) - but I ran into my favorite sanitary engineer guy in the library, and told him what I was up to. Next thing I know, I'm passing him and he says "there's a couple over there... and I left a couple in your office" - and what's in my office is a giant bag, filled to the brim with returnables!!!!
(ps. who needs a whole library when you have Fred-the-Amazing?)

LOL at Suzanne's post - it takes more guts than you think to walk around scooping up bottles and cans.

I asked Suzanne, after the fact, for a photo of her car stuffed to the gills with bottles.

Here's what she wrote:
And I *wish* I had a picture of my car - which is just a tiny VW Golf - with the original bags'o'bottles - they overwhelmed it! Had to put the bigger bag in the back seat, and even then it was a tight squeeze. Dang. I never think (until afterwards) of capturing these things for posterity! I'll ponder it, maybe I can come up with something to represent the situation. ;)

So you'll have to use your imagination .. just steer your mind in the right direction and you can visualize this tiny car full of bottles.

Hi Darlene!

This weekend will be "make a cow" weekend for me--I cannot promise a BIG cow, but maybe I can raise enough money for a nostril!

I do have to be mindful of territory here, though. There are too many people in the city who rely on toss-away bottles and cans for their meagre incomes and they all have their set routes.

Ironic, but rest assured that my contribution of a cow's nostril will not deprive anyone of a good meal!
