You really don't want to sit here
The old and the forgotten
London, ON, May 2011
We're wrapping up our week-long shopping expedition with this rather forlorn view of a downtown sidewalk. I found it more than a little ironic that the 15-ish year-old chairs were being tossed away mere meters from an antique shop window filled with lovingly restored furniture that was old when my grandparents were born.
I guess they really don't make things like they used to.
Your turn: What have we lost in the move toward a disposable society?
One more thing: Thematic's next theme, white, launches tonight at precisely 7:00 Eastern. You're all invited. Even you, Bill.
