Rich: Forever linked by a tragic accident

Thompson: Shelf liner close to duct tape in its uses

I was in a grocery store the other day and noticed that they were selling "Jar Opening Rubber Grippers." The grippers were actually just round pieces of rubberized shelf liner. So, save yourself some money, buy the shelf liner and make as many grippers as you want. By the way, you can also cut out small pieces of the liner and sew them to the bottom of your slippers for better traction. There are almost as many uses for rubberized shelf liner as there are for duct tape!

Rich: Rescuing 'possums does have a good side

You may recall past columns where I wrote of my friend, Stevie, who rescues distressed 'possums and then influenced me to do the same when I found an injured 'possum on my front porch.

I wrote of that experience, noting how sweet the 'possum was and how Stevie and I should start a nonprofit for the preservation of 'possum.
