I also found a few treasures as we were going through things. Like this original photograph of JFK.
Actually, after I posted this, some friends of Mom's brought some more folks by and they bought another $200 worth of furniture and stuff out of the garage. Total was nearly $1,000 for the day.
This time, I took a wedge out of my forehead. Ow.
The BIG DAY!!
The sale went really well and Mom got rid of practically everything. It was a huge load off her mind and spirit.
This left us free to finish up my visit by doing little odd jobs, fixing this and that on the house and reliving all the great memories. For instance:
With only the threat of a major delay, my flights home were largely without incident.
Also - Newark Airport is a pit, if you haven't been there. Ugh.
UPDATE: As of last evening, Mom finally had an offer on her house. She's countered and is waiting to hear, so fingers crossed! My last trip to Nebraska to drive her back could happen sometime soon. Yay!!
