HALOS to "Sunday Morning Grace"...who comes to the beach on Sunday mornings to pick up trash (while she's searching for an occasional piece of precious seaglass) and deposits it in the HOME DEPOT bucket she carries along with her. What a fine example she is of a steward (stewardess?) of our Earth. You inspire my husband and me, Dan and Hannah from Maine. We will from now on take a bag with us on our walks and pick up litter too ~ because of YOU!
