Fifty years in business and here’s what’s left of the history. I’ve been working for the last couple of weeks at destroying old files. I burned the last of them today. I started out shredding them but gave up on that. It’s hard to be upbeat right now but I’m trying really hard not to be a Negative Nelly. I guess I could have a pity party but those are so lonely. There is still much work to do. I think every nook and cranny is stuffed with something that needs to be sold or thrown away. He still has the original Victor calculator he bought in the early sixties for $1,400. Can you believe they used to cost that much? I need to carry it down stairs but the dang thing weighs so much I have been putting it off. Now that the old files are gone I really need to take a stab at the “things”. I’m eating an elephant here….one bite at a time.
So, what is next for me? I haven’t the slightest idea. I can’t seem to talk myself into actively searching for a new job yet. For some reason I feel like I should be here to finish this out. I don’t know why though. I learned a long time ago when camping at Rendezvous’ that you never want to be the last man in camp. It is really sad to leave the memories alone. It’s much easier to go when there are still voices laughing.
