Kids' Church

There are a few people at church who know about my soda can collection.  And they know I'll take bags of cans to be recycled (after I've pulled out the cans I need for my collection, of course.)  On Wednesday evenings they have a kids' church where supper is provided.  And what's left over at the end of the evening?  A bag of empty soda cans.  So last Sunday I was asked if I wanted that bag of cans each week.  I said, "Sure."  What's one more bag of cans each week?

This morning I got my first bag.  And after going through it, I hit the jackpot with nine cans I didn't have yet.

As if that wasn't enough, my dad gave me a Walmart brand (Great Value) fruit punch can this afternoon.

Overall, not a bad catch.

Battlefield and Football Field

A co-worker gave this Monster energy drink can to me last Friday.

It's interesting that Battlefield's new game is set in WWI, but I'm waiting for the future-shooter Call of Duty Infinite Warfare to come out in a few months.  And here's the backside of the can:

My dad found this new Dr Pepper can on the side of the road and saved it for me.  More college football stuff.
And at a great Midwest antique mall on Saturday I found this straight steel classic can:

I know there's a political joke there but it wasn't worth the $8 price tag to me.  But then again, you don't see an old joke can like that very often.  Maybe I should have bought.  Non-buyer's remorse.
