If you have questions about what we have to offer and get a feel for items and prices feel free to call [REDACTED] or send an email via craigslist!

We did sell almost everything, but we still have a lot of stuff. 1% of a lot of stuff is still a lot of stuff, as it turns out.

Also, this ended up driving us to Virginia, where, unbeknownst to us, we ended up spending the last year of my Mom’s life with my Mom and Dad. These are the kind of serendipitous acts of Grace and what you might call divine intervention that have acted in our lives in the past few years. It’s quite a run.

It’s interesting, isn’t it? I got laid off just at the right time to see my mom through a heart “event” and to spend a lot of time with my dad in his last year of life. You never know what gifts life bears or what certain things mean until you can look back on them.

True, Suebob, true. I suppose writing is in some ways the act of retroactively imbuing meaning on things.

You’ve had a heck of a last few years as well.
