SAmmy DAvis Jr's Rolls Royce, wonder if it is still around?
Some thoughts for today:
We built this house over 25 years ago. After a few years we decided to rent/lease and just travel. I know I have told this before, but I will rehash it. We asked our sons to come over and pick anything they wanted before we emptied the house.
JJ picked an old record player, Mark said I want the rest… Great. JJ took his Mark never did. So I bought a trailer (the kind towed as tractor and trailer truck) and stuck everything inside. Had it towed to some empty land we owned and we left for over 20 years. Living in the RV.
We learned what I did was stupid or ignorant. The trailer was not climate controlled of course and we lost most of the stuff we should have given away.
Again the house is FULL. I want to try to down size instead of dropping it into our son’s laps to figure what to do with the STUFF! That really isn’t fair.
So the first thing I want to do is make some shelves in the garage. I want to put things there that are worth something but we do not want nor need. Example: Once in Haiti we bought two giant wooden vases, And two chairs
A Giant set of a fork and spoon. Salad bowl and serving bowls.
A foot locker…
all hand carved.
I have some great gold trimmed Mugs from London
and many other nice souvenirs we no longer use nor need.
I think it will be a start. Looking to put some old furniture with a local antique dealer on consignment. I know we must start somewhere.......
