You probably didn't know that I'm as old as dirt. I certainly never thought that would happen in my life. I always thought I would be long gone by now, but every year those birthdays just keep adding up. Finding old memories that prove I really was skinny once, are priceless.
It was time to clean out at least part of the garage while the weather is still cool. SO MUCH STUFF!! At any rate, I could barely get my Jeep in the bay, so I finally got to it. I have to admit a lot of boxes are full of Halloween stuff. Actually, more Halloween than Christmas. I could have a block party!!
There's weird stuff too, like the two foot wide blown glass light shade, probably close to 100 years old that hung where else, but in the attic of our 100 year old house.
In the far back corner is my Grandmother's cedar chest from long long ago. I opened it carefully because somehow I remembered one hinge was broken. Right on top was a collection of pictures that took me right down memory lane.
Meet Dillon's Showboy ... Showby for short. He was one of my best all around horses. We did everything from cutting cattle competitions to equitation (just riding around the ring) and my favorite .... trail horse class. I could make the slightest move and put his feet anywhere I wanted. On this day we got first place. I miss this big guy!!
Back to cleaning, it took me an hour just to remove the boxes of junk. Gosh darn they were heavy!! Who filled these things up to the brim?? All the boxes had to be removed, as well as the wood shelves to make it easier to drag them across the garage with that horrible screeching noise.
Yes the hood is up on the Jeep because the batteries died a short and sweet death. One day they worked, the next they didn't. I charged it just enough to move it out.
Finally ... one shelf moved. However, you can see that stuff pretty much just got moved from one side to the other. Good grief Charlie Brown!!! I mean what do you do? It's all good stuff that I don't want to throw away, but there's no place to donate around here.
Yard sale? Yes ... big sigh ... but that's almost more trouble than it's worth. Maybe I can talk Cyndae into coming down and helping!!
