Oh Balls!


O.D. went to the local pharmacy/store yesterday and purchased a new bag of cotton balls. It is the same sized bag o' balls she bought about nine months ago. When she went to put her new balls into her glass container that she has for that purpose, she noticed a gigantic difference between the old balls and the new balls. The ball on the left is nine months old, on the right brand new. Oh hey! she got 300 hundred balls in the new bag, like she did in the previous bag, and at the same price, but somehow they have shrunk...like our economy?

Good Lord yes! Come to Oregon, you'll love it. I just wouldn't recommend anywhere near Pendleton.

I'm sure you're right about the rv living, but I'm kinda jealous of you being near the water. I've been thinking of wandering out to the coast and just parking. 'Cuz, you know, I CAN. heh. ;o)

Ouch, that really shows up what some of the write ups have been saying about packaging, size, and pricing. Seems alot of manufacturers, like cereal and such, are changing how much is in the package, but not changing package size or price. It isn't until you put them side by side like this that you notice. I know they are being pressed for costs in many cases, but doing stuff like this is so misleading.
