We interrupt this broadcast....
Taking a break from answering questions, or maybe better put - giving anyone out there a break from reading long, winding answers to what started out as simple questions!A few quick photos to share:

Basement storage room, pre-destroy sort and organize - the pantry and gift wrap area. I'm actually done with this area, and it looks worlds better! This wall will get some sheetrock put on it, making it much more finished looking.

This half still looks pretty rough. I've cleared out two of the metal shelves, two more to go, that are not staying in there. They have a new home in the garage and shed. The five black ones will stay, on a different wall. Hopefully all organized with matching white boxes neatly labeled with the contents. That curtain 'wall' at the back of the photo is going to be replaced with sheetrock, closets on both sides. Very exciting, but it's going to make a big mess getting there.

Dublin arrived at his new home in this. We're hoping to sell it on Craig's List. It's way too big to just keep around. He sleeps in another one much like this, and we don't need two.

Don's old letter jacket, Boulder High School, umpteen years ago, still has the letter and the pins on it. I was thrilled that he agreed we could just take a photo of it for the scrapbook, keep the letter, but get rid of the jacket. That's the spirit! I think he was just relieved I didn't ask him to try it on, to see if it still fit! I do have a very cute photo of him wearing it, back when he was 18. Again, that curtain behind the jacket is the current 'wall'.

Don and I last night, having dinner at a restaurant voted "Most Romantic" in the city of Pittsburgh, you can't see the wrap-around windows that show off the skyline view of the city. We were just tickled too, to include the people eating behind us. Wouldn't want to forget any of them, now would we? This is Don's first beard in ages, I like it. You can also see my horrid haircut is growing out just a bit and it's at least manageable.

So I'm off to dive into the basement again, tackling a few more shelves. I'm finding I run across fun memories often enough to keep me going through the muck and yuck. I'll be back with more answers to questions on Monday, after the snow, after church, after some football. Happy Weekend everyone!
