True story. She came home and said she found a chair at the dumps. I says to her go back and get it if it was any good.



Ha! You married well!

My dad was a world class hoarder, which was compounded by the fact that he grew up in the family business of second hand furniture. To him, everything had a potential value and I'm not kidding, he would not throw a thing out, from plastic bags to empty pickle jars to every dang piece of clothing and furniture he ever owned.

Most of their stuff was able to fit into their assisted living unit/garage space, but last year their condition deteriorated and they went into nursing. So everything other than a few small things (old records and record player and a cabinet) went into storage, and then we started to throw things out recently. We've gone through three full size dumpsters and still have a ton of crap to get rid of. Lots of people see their old furniture and say it must be valuable, but I'm tired of moving furniture from one storage place to another and no one would actually buy the crap my parents had. So off to the dumps it goes.

I laugh at shows like Storage Wars, where the people assign ridiculous values to worthless stuff ("Oh, this broken side table with weird stains is a $20 bill all day long"). If that were true, my parents would have a huge roll of cash. They don't.

"smelled like cabbage and carpet powder"... anyone who thinks poetry is a lost art in America has yet to read Large James. His prose and Huntsmans22's art humbles most of the modern masters.

Been shoppin at Trader Joes before the first millennial was ever born.

That said very few items I get from there anymore.

I do get a hankering for their pfeffernusse every Christmas though.

Also two buck chuck every now and again.

You are right about the Daughters though. Especially the college one that got me stumbling drunk a few weekends back.
