So, I was at this private estate sale this weekend, a big three story Craftsman, full of everything this kid loves. Including the ashes of the deceased found by me in two little boxes in a sack on the mantle. Not for sale, I was told. Please, if you are going to have a sale, put Mother and Father away, before someone walks away with them.
I did buy a black tin box and on my return home looked at the contents closely and to my surprise found all the deeds to the oil wells in Louisiana, gold and silver mines in Oregon, land grants, deeds, birth certificates all dating back to 1831. Oh, and course cemetery plot locations. And yes, I was a good boy, I drove back and handed them the black tin box. So here are a few things to show and tell, more later I promise.
