SHAMBLES

My move is complete and House Fly is in complete disarray. We never really thew stuff away from our 6br home in Princeton and stored it in our first NC home’s garage for 3 years. Now with this new house, a much smaller home than the NJ monster, our two car garage is packed to the ceiling with junk. The interior of the home is in complete shambles and the painters are coming Monday.

TBH, I’ve purchased maybe 5% of the junk and just financed this hoarding for the past decade plus, as I am now in possession of a complete junkyard.

First order of business will be to throw all of this stuff away when my wife isn’t looking.

The workers ripped apart my $12,000 horse hair mattress — but I’m not mad at them because their job was hard and this type of collateral damage is to be expected.

Their leader was asking me about the economy and we started small talk, moving into the war chat which he knew nothing about. He’s too busy to pay attention to such nonsense, which unto itself is illuminating.

Ok, I’m gonna head out to eat now.

More later.

    Years ago it was customary for southern gentleman to have at least one junk car on the front lawn.

    Hire someone asap (pay a %) to sell your excess stuff on craigslist. (cash only, pick up only, email only)

    “I climbed down and inadvertently found myself in conversation with one of my litter bearers. It was illuminating to learn that the common folk know nothing of our wars. Anyway, feeling generous ..I forgave the damage done to my feather bed. Still, a most trying day.”

    Replying to @DoombergT
    Nothing destroys a civilization’s solidarity like a famine or cold winter without power. There are countries about to swing hard to the far right in Europe in the next two years precisely because of the insanity of a few seemingly intelligent elites who lacked any common sense.

    Moving is always a b-tch Cap’n.

    I say forget horsehair and think horse heads.
    Maybe you could make an offer to buy out Moe Greene and move to the Tropicana Senor? : )

    I left Colorado in 71 with everything I owned in a Kelty frame backpack, ski bindings, climbing gear and rope, and an extra set of clothes. I got up to a house, garage, and storage unit full plus a boat. Now I’m back to everything I own in a 650 square apartment and still going thru boxes not opened in a year. Good luck Fly.

    If you wouldn’t buy the item again today then get rid of it. The Flys’ familiar advice also applies to piles of old books and other crap too! I use the arguement with success at the shared sentimental cottage.

    And neither do you, other than gargling with 0-hedge’s balls and regurgitating his traitorous thoughts in this shit blog!
