hAAlf nAAked thursdAAy


This weeks' pic comes to you from my Mom's home. At least, the home she lived in for 43 years until last October 30 when she had a series of strokes.

I'm currently clearing it out of her possessions.
Mom is a pack rat.
She kept almost everything -- from plastic bags, empty envelopes to use for scratch paper to bottles of every shape and size.

I'm not dumpster diving -- yet.

check out the other HNT divers for this week

I remember doing that at my parent's house. Happy HNT to you.
I see you and a dumpster too,

Advise ~ Don't ever collect anything. My father collects liquor pitchers. He has over 5,000. What a nightmare. He says his collection is worth $$$. My sister tells him we are getting a dumpster for it when he dies.

man, that must have been difficult for you to go through your mom's house - memories indeed!

You look very ambitious in that dumpster!

OK... where is the "naked" part in those photos? Is it that your Mom's house is half naked now or is her life half naked without all of the possessions shes collected.

I'll be joining you in going through mother's possessions very shorly. Not looking forward to it at all.

This picture, and watching my 86 year old neighbor and her children attempt to empty out a 4,00 SF house in which that pack rat lives, has made me resolve to clean out my closets and garage annually. Ugh....
