Encroaching on your decrees

So today I reduced a box (15 15 x 20 inches) of my late dad's papers to a one inch file to take with us; a book, some narrow guage railway tickets and a photo of a dog for my brother; a two inch pile of genealogy correspondence for the cousins- once-removed; and a lot of stuff for the bin.
Quite therapeutic once I got stuck into it
I didn't have the best relationship with my dad. He wasn't an easy man to know or love. The papers I've chosen to keep include the testimonials from his earliest jobs which describe him as a younger man, more rounded and willing to become involved (less ground down and cynical, perhaps) than the man I remember. And the synopsis and introduction to a book he never wrote about man as an animal (he was a zoologist and an educator).
I found some old family photos I didn't know I had and scanned them before adding them to the pile for the cousins.
Another box tomorrow, though I am more sue of what's in it.

You've sorted and examined everything so you know what you're binning. I'll bet $100 you won't regret divesting yourself of that baggage.

I found this picture on the net, but Limey tells me it's not really boxing day, it's January 3rd.
I acquiesce to her knowledge of empty liquor bottles.
