      As most of you know I've been trying to downsize for quite some time. So far my greatest success is to get something to blog about.

      I have discovered some things about the micro manager that I hadn't recognized. The Micro Manager will hang almost anything on the house walls. She has an untanned sealskin on a wall that she bought from one of the Inuit while she was nursing in the Arctic. It's a good thing she doesn't find a skunk skin or that might be on the wall too.

     Her cousin found painting late in life and we were the beneficiaries of many the these creations. Guess where they went? Well yes, onto our walls. Guess who framed and hung these treasures? Ya , Red , that's who.

     I found one little room with 10 treasures on the walls. 

     Well this year there is a little more movement to actually discard things. If something is on paneling it's gone because it  doesn't leave a nail hole. 

     So these two treasures are being disposed of. I know I'm not supposed to end a sentence with a proposition. 

     These were meant to be bumper stickers that were passed out by the Alberta Teachers Association in the 1980's.

     I didn't know what to do with them so I mistakenly brought them home.

     The Micro Manager got busy right away and found the two cedar planks and voila the stickers went on the planks and on the wall. 

    I also found several coats that I never remember seeing.

    So here are piles of this and that that are really going to leave the house this year.
