Years ago, when we moved a lot, we used to go to the newspaper offices and ask for end-of-rolls. These were rolls of blank newsprint from where they replaced rolls of paper when they got near the end. They usually were happy to get rid of them and everybody won. They clear out what they had, and we got clean newsprint to use for packing paper. I don't know if they do that anymore.
I might also have a root beer float. Take your best vanilla ice cream, your favorite root beer, and put it in a frosty freezer mug. I was almost out of root beer, so there is no frothy mound sticking out the top. But, trust me, it was yummy and hits the spot on these hot days.
What I won't be doing this weekend is attending my high school reunion (the 40th.. really???) Maybe I can make the 50th.
