Default My End Game.

When my Dad died, I cleaned out his shop and, believe me, it was a chore--not one I really minded but still a chore. I plan to start cleaning out my shop tomorrow. Probably take months but I don't know how much longer I'll be able to do the job myself. Every time I start cleaning it out, I find another project to play with. Ever sorted screws, nuts and bolts to evade the real cleaning project? Stainless, bronze, cad, brass, galvanized? SAE, Metric, Coarse thread, fine thread? Then there are the various sizes. Too many distractions. Umm, that reel needs a new drag, etc.

I gotta get organized.

Nope, I gotta mow my son's lawn. Oh well, someday soon.

My son said he'd piss on my grave if he had to clean out my shop. I can't have that happening.

Capt Ken I know what ya mean. I went to Oklahoma with my wifes BFF to get her aunts place ready to sale. A single lady for the last 20 plus years,and it was wild. It made me start dumping stuff/bargins that I have gathered over the years. I started the day after we got the uhall unloaded with the stuff she and her daughter wanted.I still have a ways to go but its one small step at a time. You are in my prayers sir.

With the exception of tools.... If I don't use it in 4 years then someone else needs it more then I do. Tools are forever.. you just never know when you will need them.

Yeah, I'm in the process of organizing...it's rough but I'm liking the efforts on my end...I can actually see sections of my countertops in my shop now. I'm cleaning out all the cabinets and vacuuming the roach crap and snake crap right now. Gotta get some kind of roach poison to take care of that issue...Not worried about the snake crap!

My parents kept my grandparents house when they passed....and not too many years later my parents passed. So I am trying to do this with two homes that are hours away from me. I loved my family dearly, but this is a tough burden I will admit. Good on you Capt. for trying to not leave that for him! I hope I am as wise and prepared in the future for my kids.

I looked at my garage and shed and think that I’ve got to get rid of a lot of stuff. If I died, and left it for my wife to deal with, she would kill me.
