    We finally got my late aunt's house cleaned out and sold. It had been so long since any upgrades (even basic stuff like new carpet hadn't been updated since my uncle died in '88) have been done on it that the realtor felt it would be best to market it toward investors/house flippers, so that's what we did. Ended up being a 15 day escrow. Yikes! My uncle had a work shop with all kinds of oldish tools, as well as numerous coffee cans and jars full of nails and screws and nuts and bolts and washers. To top it all off he had saved dozens of cans of paint and stain and cleaners and solvents and oils/lubricants and lawn care chemicals and pesticides and e-waste in the form of coaxial cable, old extension cords, old electric heaters and fans, dozens and dozens of electrical receptacles and light switches and lamp parts and wiring. Our local county hazardous materials facoilities will take all that for free, but only 125 lbs or 15 gallons at one time. I had to make 7 trips to dispose of all of it. BUT...it's finally all done. I have some free time back again. Yay! Pass the pizza and deal me in. Where's my crate?

    I haven't seen a crate for ages, maybe that's why it's so quiet on here, nowhere to sit!

    Dan - wow! Y'all have really been busy. I can see it in my mind : those cans of screws, nails, bolts, washers because WE HAVE THEM TOO. We inherited them from Kevin's dad when we got married - so for 30 years they've been following us around. That was so kind of you to plunge in there & get this taken care of - it's hard & sometimes sad work. is the crate reference like a "soap box"? something to stand on when you have something to say?

    If my memory is still working properly I think the "crate" reference goes back to the original Lee Child forum. On there, as on here, there were several sections some dealing with books/authors and one for "anything goes". I cannot remember what it was called but new members would be invited to "pull up a crate and join in the conversation"

    Perhaps someone else from back then can remember. Dot?? Deanie?? Mo?? Do you go back that far, Dan?? I'm thinking around 2007 or 8

    We didn't sit in chairs on the original forum. We pulled up a crate to sit on. I made/sewed all the cushions for the crates. :-)

    I wasn't part of the original crew, but I did come along when crates were still being used. I had a Deanie-sewed cushion and everything. That was back when Lee used to come on rather frequently and post with us.
