This is why clearing out my Dad's workshop fills me with terror

Mim and Mum

Note that this is explosive

Now imagine clearing out all those drawer

And now go have several drinks

I have been moaning, for years, "How am i going to DO THIS?", long before Dad was ill or elderly. And keep in mind that's one of three workshops. THREE. The most crowded one, but still. All the other clearing out I can manage, but I don't even know what most of that stuff is.

If i remember correctly your father fixed watches and made beautiful jewlery.... That i think was in the basement of your old house (not positive, pictured with your Mother &Miriam? Drinks help! Have one furme!

That's the upstairs workroom, actually, beside my old bedroom. Note the explosive gas tank. Geoff thinks Dad has cleared out some of the tools from the basement, but the watch and clock and jewellery repair part hasn't been touched, and it gives me hives.

The Little Shop of Terror, as it were.

It really is, Anne. And tomorrow I visit a retirement home with them and start (God willing and everyone pray!) the process that will lead to me CLEARING ALL THAT OUT. Send gin immediately.
