The Great Toilet Paper Conspiracy!

I am officially 60! I feel kind of free! I even wore a hat to the grocery store.
Christmas was great!. Memphis was so sweet and appreciative of everything. We gave him a 50 cent maginifying glass and he yelled," I've been wanting one of these!" Next week, I am off from work and Memphis and Annie have the whole week together. My sweet Mother and Daddy gave me a new camera. It is a Coolpix P510. I am in digital heaven. Smile, you may be on Amy Lue's camera. Annie has been cooking up a storm and it so yummy and healthy. I am so glad she likes to cook. We have had puppy drama, but not with the new puppy. She is doing great and has quadrupled in size. Sid was diagnosed with heartworms and was pretty much given a death sentence. We have been feeding him  liver, antibiotics, prednisone, and treated him with Ivomec for cattle. He has perked up and is feeling  more like his evil self again. We are hopeful to keep him going.

Now to The Great Toilet Paper Conspiracy. Have you noticed how toliet paper doesn't last as long as it used to. The amount of tissue on a single roll has been steadily diminishing for the past few years. But in the last 2 years it has been dramatic. The companies are now packaging it in 12 roll packs. Are you kidding me? My Mother never bought 12 roll packs. I never bought 12 roll packs. But it is impossible for a simple 4 pack to last more than a week. The cardboard center keeps getting bigger, the roll is looser and there just isn't much there. I believe they are just fluffing it up more and more and rolling it so loosely that you have to buy at least a 6 or 8 pack for a family of 2 1/2.  And the price of that 12 pack is 14 dollars. For TOILET PAPER?  Come on. I don't know the answer cause it's not like people are going to boycott toilet paper. We are way to far removed from the days of corn cobs and the Sears Catalog. You can't even get a Sears catalog. What are the college kids going to do for homecoming, and Halloween? Please, there has to be a way to get this back to a normal price for a reasonable amount of tissue. Write your congressmen, write your senators, write your toilet paper companies. We must overcome the great toilet paper conspiracy!
