Moving Day

Got up early to help my friend Dan move. I'm really too old to do this kind of thing, but I just had to. You see, Dan is a collector, and Dan's interests are beyond the norm. There were the usual 100's of boxes of kitsch, kitchen and household goods. That old standard- patio bricks and boards for shelves- was there too. But very little furniture! (I learned later that there was new furniture at his new place.) But then we got into the esoteric. A box marked 'carburetors'. Three boxes of "Rollins" (as in Henry.) Photographs, of course. A half-dozen fine commercial doors (walnut and heavy brass hardware.) A full-size lathe ("Just put it in the front room") and to top it off, a half-dozen crankshafts (from large diesel engines.)

You never know when you might be wanting a few of those.

but when you move, you find out how much you don't want them.

Thanks again for the help.
