I spent part of today going though a box of papers. [Papers and books make up much of the boxed “stuff” here.]
(from images.google.com, image is NOT mine!)
I found our original mortgage paperwork, from 1982? Why we still had this I don’t know. The only thing I can think of is that until a while back, I just moved boxes back and forth mostly and didn’t go through them often, so this got moved, from California to Georgia to Florida to New England and then within New England, until I found these papers again, today.
Out they go into the shredding pile!
One more foray into the stack of boxes found something long missing: the photo album. Now I can file the pics in one or two manila envelopes here which have been waiting for this event.
