Who Knew

WOW I am so surprised at how beautiful ND really is! Between all the beautiful green fields and the blooming Canola fields it simply amazing!

I don't think with out our RV we would see so many beautiful sites! We have always traveled a lot, but when flying we didn't see anything really. With work we are in towns usually and just kind of in the mode of getting work done - and the hotels didn't really have great views either. Another building.......

I was trying to upload pictures but the internet here is sketchy and doesn't seem to want to upload pics.

We have a side entry also. Like it.

No peeking. Denise and I have had some good conversations when you were out playing in the greenhouse.

Been through that myself...My folks cleaned out a few other peoples homes from that era and of course they themselves couldn't part with all the stuff that didn't sell...I did manage to claim a broken down old rusty hand tiller I use as a flower bed ornament...One of these days soon I'll spray paint it with rustoleum to a bright red color... the other thing that I claimed and have used some of is the yarn stash from 2 women my mom took the yarn from, never used, but I am working away at it along with her own stash...LOL! Old acrylic yarn never dies it seems....

Jeff, Barb, Les, Marty,

In 1988 my folks sold, trashed, gave away, or donated dang near everything and moved from MN to Prescott, AZ. They both had stuff going back before the Great Depression, and all of the folks that came to the estate sale thought it was junk of the very highest value. They made good cash!

They saved us a ton of work! Guess they were ahead of the times.

Call in the "Pickers". Doubt those jokers would want to deal with an old skin flint like me however. I'd force 'em to haul out all the worthless junk in exchange for the few good items that they want.

Haha! THAT is what we did. Our kids got what they wanted. The local "picker" bought the rest and hauled it away the same day!

Anyway with the dense fog we can almost be unseen two days of pouring rain have made this a miserable job.

Travel Safe one and all !!

Tough job at best! Glad you've had help and company.

Mother remembered clearing out after Grandmother passed, so she started clearing her things out a few years before she died. It did help, but then there was also Daddy's shed to deal with. Time-consuming and hard work, but also a time for memories. Wish I hadn't been an only child!

Rest and reminisce when you can, enjoy the company, and know you have the sympathy of fellow mutants.

Cheers!
Sue

All the best to your mom, Diane. We'll be sending Ohhhmmms to both her and you. Been there, done that, so I know it can be stressful.

Cheers!
