Memorable Automobiles from The Past:
For today: STUFF!
Below is the back of our basement. The room divider you see is solid oak, built in 1948 and used by several of our families.
Yep a tread mill and exercise bike, seldom used.
Some of you maybe too young to know, but there was a time when mama
and daddy passed that the children went thru the shoebox and two old photo
albums with those soft black pages full of old pictures and divided them up. I
still have a few shots from my Grannies’ that mm & dad took.
The furniture was
taken by siblings and kin to replace some of their own. If the family had owned
the home it was sold and the money divided among the heirs.
Seldom was there an estate sale, because there was nothing
left………. That was in the past. Now it is seldom that anyone has room for
anything else unless they throw something away. They can’t logically take it.
WE have our garages, basements and storage buildings FULL or
Most have family framed
‘portraits’. Some of those are large with heavy frames, WHAT TO DO WITH THEM?
Above is Sherry's Mama (She was a sweet beauty) in a frame made by Vernon (Sherry's Bro)
Below is a picture of Sherry's mama's mama. (thee are not paintings)
Here is a dilemma that WE face. There are hundreds of pictures
of old friends and even some family that NO ONE in our immediate family would
recognize. They mean NOTHING to them.
Random shots from my old office.
I still have room for
more in the basement, but I would like to ‘delete’ most of what we have. I
still have not filled the two garages, but my old office houses our beautiful
Dining room suite, and old bed frame and head board. A piece or two of
furniture I built in 1952.
I have one sewing machine left in my office that I really want to remember how to
use, I cannot remember how to replace the bobbin.
