You know I am helping my
friend, Ruth, sort through her "stuff"
so we can stage her house.
We have gone through
formal living room
two bedrooms so far.
We have emptied closets,
emptied chests of drawers,
and emptied baskets
and storage containers.
She knew what she had but
I was smiling all over when
I discovered some of the pretty things
she had hidden away.
We have found some very wonderful pieces.
She has trunks and trunks and trunks.
These are going to auction and
YOU WON'T BELIEVE
what is hiding inside.
I'll show you tomorrow if I can get my act together.
She has several!
The auction house is coming in a few days.
Meanwhile, we are sorting and packing.
Ruth is making some fast decisions
and I am proud of her.
It is no easy feat to let go of
things you have collected for years.
They have offered me anything I want.
They are generous like that.
But....I, too, have
SO MUCH STUFF,
SO MUCH STUFF,
but I found a few little things
that make me smile and think of Ruth.
I'll show you the BIG THING they gave
me soon-after I break the news to
As for the Mr?
Well, I told him he had to pack his
cuz I was afraid I might come across
something that looked like THIS!
Ha! You have NO IDEA how funny
this really is....Tom in a Speedo!!!!!
Think CONSERVATIVE and MODEST.
I am probably "in for it" when
I get there this morning!
I hope he doesn't shove me in one
of those trunks and slam the lid shut.
Things like that HAVE been known
to happen, you know!!!!
