My mother has been in assisted living now for over a year. Thank you God for letting her like her surroundings. The last house her and my late father shared for almost 40 years has been sold. That closing is Tuesday, the last big hurdle to get over.
Wednesday evening, the hottest day of the year so far, we packed the contents of the barn and house up. All of the contents of the house had already been picked over and packed up in previous weeks. My sister and I had seen to that. However the barn was left to tackle.
Thanks to the blacksmith, the son, the oldest grandson (who is 9 now), a nephew and a great nephew (yes I'm old enough for some of them too), we got the hot job finished. No one had a dry stitch of clothing on. My sister and I were included.
The old shed was next. Many spiders went scurrying away.
This is the truck we filled to the brim. Seriously, it was packed to the ceiling.
A few things did not fit, and a few things we didn't want to include. So my sister, being the pyromaniac she is, took care of that! (She inherited this trait!)
On Sunday, we have to be at the auction house at 6:30 AM to unload and unpack boxes. My brother and his wife from California flew in to help. Cousins from across the state will be there, as well as other relatives and in-laws.
So if you are close to Jefferson City join us for auction day.
