Nope! We have one DH won't throw out because "it's going to be worth money some day!" LOL NOT

We have stuff like that too, Pac. I want to just throw it away, but DH won't let me. I will hand him this....he made our attic exhaust fan out of a bunch of junk he had laying around. The blade from an old box fan, a motor he took off something...the only thing he had to buy was the louvers that open and close when you turn on the fan. DH would love to rummage through your stuff! My grandson would love to have the colored pencils, markers and paper.

I should have taken pix, but we were hungry. I'll try to remember pix next time.

I was going to say pretty much the same thing, except the part about your mum.

Bum! Didn't you get back from a vacation just a little while ago? Nice, though. Vacation? Or work related. Whatever it is, enjoy the warmth.

Thanks, but no. I have enough of our own shrattis to get rid of before I can even think of listing it for sale. When we moved up here from OH I did have a Pong game to sell.

I have to go kill off another small grove of trees, copying everything and anything I can think of to verify my existence and citizenship...just to buy health insurance. There isn't much they ask for, but I'm making sure anything that might bring up another question (like why my last name on my birth certificate is different than my name now...duh! I got married!) I'm beginning to feel a little bit like Santa and the M&M guys!

Thanks for the pic, Taxy. I've never seen one folded like that before.

Donate the coloring pencils/markers/pastels to a Jr High (Middle School?) or High School art department.

Do you have a scanner? Most modern photocopiers have hard disks. If you don't want your personal info, that you are copying, to possibly get into the wrong hands, scan it at home or at a friend's place.

I'm watching Chopped Canada in the hospital. Got here yesterday. I was extremely dehydrated; it's amazing what five bags of fluid does for a body, lol. I know it's not funny but January was one of the worst months of my life and I just want to get past it at this point. Hopefully I'm going home tomorrow and can get back to cooking soon.
