A young man walking through a supermarket noticed an old lady following him around. Thinking nothing of it, he ignored her and continued on. Finally he went to the checkout line, but she got in front of him.
''Pardon me,'' she said, ''I'm sorry if my staring at you has made you feel uncomfortable. It's just that you look just like my son, who just died recently.''
''I'm very sorry,'' replied the young man, ''is there anything I can do for you?''
''Yes,'' she said, ''As I'm leaving, can you say 'Good bye, Mother!' ? It would make me feel so much better.''
''Sure,'' answered the young man.
As the old woman was leaving, he called out, ''Goodbye, Mother!''
As he stepped up to the checkout counter, he saw that his total was $127.50.
''How can that be?'' he asked, ''I only purchased a few things!''
''Your mother said that you would pay for her,'' said the clerk.
I take old Starbucks Drink Cups and turn them into Lamps
The warm panels are made from melting down old Starbucks drink cups, but it looks and feels like mica or some organic material. The wood in the lampshade and base is pulled from our 100 year old house in Astoria Oregon during a remodel, and it all comes together for a beautiful, classic look.

the world... nutty.
