Subject: RE: BS: February Declutter - keep the faith!
I am so impressed with what everyone has done! WISH I had done a tenth of it. I did manage (with my neighbor's help ) to get the range hood over the range (!) It has been in the woodshed or barn for YEARS! Allen (neighbor) has also moved all the shelves and the stuff on them to the middle of the basement so we can insulate the outside wall. I have just barely managed to get the set done for "Grease" and all that stuff comes back at the end of the show. But I did manage to get three bins of metal recycling to the recycling center, and three bags of trash to the dump. (usually it takes me about a month to 6 weeks to gather a bag of trash--I am WAY below the norm-- but this was paint cans that were empty of nearly so, stuff that had accumulate over the last 15 years and so on) But I really need to sort out David's stuff and give it away or sell it or what ever. My Turkish AFS student wore one of his shirts to the semiformal at a neighboring school. He looked great!

Now I need to go to bed. My neighbors nephew-in-law is coming in the morning to look at the kitchen. Perhaps he can build cabinets faster than I have done. 21 years here an the same old ugly stuff. Ironic that the cook in the family is not here to see it happen.
