Indeed!
During college summers I spent some of them working in a papermill and I know TP from the logs to the wood chips to the pulp to the mile long paper machine.

Paper mills have the worst smell! It's horrible! How did you stand it?

And I'm celebrating by opening up a new roll!

Enjoy your weekend, Joy!

We grew up next to papermills. It smells like home. :-) Pollution wise they got much better over the years.

Thanks goodness for TP...everytime I look at a corncob I think "I can't believe people used to wipe their butts with those! Who thought of that!?"
