July 7 - busy, busy, busy
Sunday, July 07, 2019
My grandfather passed away last January and the family is now coming together to clean out his house. He was a pack-rat, to put it nicely and was in his house for almost 70 years. I spent the day cleaning out his garage. I logged over 7 miles in the process and my legs feel it. I also moved so much lumber that my back is feeling it as well
. We uncovered his old car that I have never seen in my life because it was always buried under stuff.
For the next two weeks - my parents, my aunt and uncle, my daughter and for the last week my two boys will be working on getting the house emptied and cleaned. We are not sure if we will finish or not. None of us has time to do a yard sale so we have been putting things out front for free. Some of it is normal yard sale junk, but some of his tools and some of my grandmother's dishes are more expensive. There are other things that if we had time I am sure we could research and sell to collectors. The problem is no one has the time to sell the items or anyplace to store them. oh-well.
I hope July is off to great start for everyone.
