Timing Is Everything

My dad's widow, Connie, called today. She has sold the house in Belleville and is closing on it tomorrow, although she seems to have through the end of the week to finish getting her stuff out of it. She just looked in the attic above the garage and found a bunch of papers and toys and stuff that I had no idea was there. Nor do I know what they are without looking at them.

Belleville is six hours away by car. This is too far. It really is.

This is no doubt true. Unfortunately, the boxes appear to be rotting, according to Connie, so she would have to repack and ship everything after getting it out of the attic, which I'm not convinced will actually happen without my intervention. There might also be other things in the house which I would want and could collect (with Connie's permission) if I were there.

I sent Connie to talk to my sister, Judy, who will call me back and let me know what she thinks.

I know. But I talked to Judy and she's pretty convinced that there's nothing up there of importance. After the number of moves that we made during our youth, I tend to agree. Garage sales were a way of life if you were in the military. :)
