And despite everything we women have taught ourselves about not being judged on appearances....

... you're still hot

Makes me smile. You've been noticeably absent here.

Slogging through cleaning out my cousin's house. He saved every financial document. So I have to review it all to make sure it isn't important before I toss it. Here is a W-2 from his father's job 60 years ago. 1952. Inflation.

glatt - I'd think some of those are collectible.

Yes, I worked with a guy at Boeing who's hobby was collecting old business documents. Later he bought a couple of Rita's water Ice stands so I was able to track him down when I inherited a bunch of cancelled checks from a MA business it the 1870/80s. When I gave them to him he wanted to fill my truck with water ice.

There's collectible and then there's collectible.

Crazy thing is, that the way the executor compensation is worked out in Virginia on a sliding scale, for every extra dollar's worth of property I can find and cash in at this point, I get two cents for myself.

So it has to have obvious value for me to give a shit.

My motivation is to clean out this house and get rid of it as soon as I can.

On my honor, I will do my best to do my duty to God and my country, even if it's only for 2%.

Worth gathering stuff like that into a pile and seeing if any university archives would like it.
