Ho Ho Ho!

My next door neighbor is selling her house (or at least trying to — it's been on the market since April), and I was helping her clean out her basement. I don't want to sound too noble; a lot of other people were helping, and most of them did a lot more than I did. What makes this such an interesting task is that my neighbor has lived in her house since 1930, and there's a lot of old stuff around. Not so much valuable old stuff, just interesting things that have accumulated in the basement and/or garage over the years.

She must think that I'm nuts based on what I chose to take with me: a lump of coal. I wonder whose stocking I should put it in this Christmas.
