STORAGE! February 2017
EVERYTHING MUST GO!
“Never own more than you can carry in both hands at a dead run.”
– Robert A. Heinlein
From an undisclosed location somewhere in Southern California:

“A journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step” – Lao Tzu
We have started our SPRING CLEANING early. We are tasked with “unboxing”, sorting, repacking and moving all of our stuff again. And now we are selling and giving away other things we no longer need or wish to keep and store.
We moved everything to this location from our last storage space in North Hollywood. We also gave away a quality queen bed, a very nice leather recliner sofa and another small couch during that move. And our mid-century modern dining room table is also “on loan” until we have a place for it.
A daunting task to deal with so much “stuff” which we have only just begun…
MORE TO COME! (an inventory, pics and stuff for sale soon!)
“That’s all, a little place for my stuff.
That’s all I want, that’s all you need in life,
is a little place for your stuff, ya know?”
– George Carlin

NOTE: This Blog (and the UC Santa Cruz Blog that hasn’t been published yet) was written before we got the news that our very good friend Ann from college died suddenly and unexpectedly this week. We’ve been in shock and are deeply saddened by this news. You don’t think this will be the last time you see someone you’ve loved for 30+ years. It was a really fun day in Hollywood and then I dropped them off at the Cure concert at the Hollywood Bowl. Rest in Peace Annie. May the Four Winds blow her safely home.

Well, it took us two months but we emptied our storage space in North Hollywood:
Empty Storage Space. They jacked my rent for the last time.
Downsizing. Spring Cleaning. (and too much stuff to move)
Time for a nap.
