As a result of our water eater giving up the ghost a few days back, we spent this evening separating the wheat from the chaff in the basement.
The wheat will be picked up by movers and move to storage tomorrow, and the traffic will be trashed out by the clean up crew the day after.
When you do things like this you think about deep philosophical questions like, “Who in their right mind puts carpeting down in a basement?”, which is what the previous owners did.
I finished the evening sore and stinky, and so had a long hot shower.
Since Sharon joined me, the evening was not a complete loss.
