No pictures today. It was raining and blowing hard from the south east but at least there were not tornadoes to worry about. We stayed inside and got busy.
We've begun to sift through things in earnest. The big barn is empty and waiting for someone to resurface the stall floors. We've decided to take one room at a time and today was our old east bedroom. Many trips to "old will" as Dave calls it. Lots of conversation as we strolled down memory lane together. Here's Dave's high school and college rings, here's one from our first trip to Arizona. Silver business card holder from dear old Aunt Erna, t shirts from Papago "screw off days", my silver horse head stock pin, Jesse's learner's permit (God, he looked young....), lots and lots of ties and business suits never to be worn again (thank goodness), hand made leather sandals from the 70's, little Jesse's notes to the tooth fairy, Dave's flight bag with his log book, knee board, charts, etc., etc., etc..
And then we came to the small Sentry Safe that holds Jesse's coin collection. At least that's what we think it holds - all parents can understand our reluctance to crack it open and see what is really inside......Of course, no keys remain. You can find anything on the internet. Within a few minutes Dave found out how to pop the lock and we were in!!!!! With a few minor exceptions, the safe did hold the treasured coin collection. We closed it back up and put it away for Jesse to rediscover.
So, that was our rainy, blowy day.
