    Sad but true to life and Maggie, I worry about it too (in this economy it’s a struggle to find work) but most places have plenty of organizations that give out food. The people in the U.S. who eat out of dumpsters generally do it due to mental illness.

  8. Thank goodness there’s at least one in the dumpster. But here’s hoping she gets sorted.

    Sorry I’m late; came down with a cold.

  9. Is that her end? Too sad and unfortunate. It behooves on us as a people to care for the aged.
