    My condolences Ulu on the loss of your mom.

    well we laid my mom to rest in the old Pioneer Cemetery Thursday. I've had a day to decompress and now life is going to go on as per usual. I'm going to have my morning cup of tea read the news and then take my wife up to run around in the hills and shoot some targets.

    Uluwatu, at least you've got it pretty good otherwise. A song I've been into lately is Halfway There by Soundgarden. It really makes some light of that sort of thing.

    Thank you guys, one and all.

    Well yesterday I moved the last of my mom's earthly posessions and this morning I find myself pretty much over the grief of death, but I am not over the grief of having my garage full of furniture and clothes, wheelchairs and walkers, and the accoutrements of age and senility.

    For some reason it reminds me of an early Asimov novel about society and aging, in the future of humankind on a crowded Earth.

    It is the story about an Earth where people my age have chosen not to exist.

    Fortunately on this Earth people my age cannot only choose to exist, but choose to skate if they are able.

    I think this morning I will choose to do that.

    Then I will call all my relatives and find out if they want any of the stuff in my garage. Hopefully they will not fight over this stuff like a bargain sale at Kmart, and it will all disappear in short order.

    The walkers have 608 bearings you can use.

    Ulu, when we cleaned out my father's house in April we donated his wheelchair, walker, and other equipment to his church. They were happy to get it.

    Too many boards that I don't ride enough...

    First off, I hope my "like" on your previous post expressed my condolences sufficiently...I didn't feel like "dislike" would've conveyed the right emotion.

    Regarding all the stuff, are there any outfits in your area that arrange estate sales? There's a couple firms around here that'll take on the advertising, pricing, and have a full weekend sale, and will take a few bucks out for their troubles, and should donate the remaining stuff to a worthy charity...I used to live right around the corner from one of their shops, and it was pretty cool walking up there on weekends to sift through the old stuff (I scored a tin of Prince Albert pipe tobacco that was still full!). One of the benefits is that having someone else do it will take the emotions right out of it - something which my family ran into while managing an estate sale for my grandma (we're a sentimental bunch).
    yes, an uber-grippy, square-lipped slalom wheel IS the best for sliding

    Well there may be a garage sale but I think that's about it. There were only a couple little bits that were important to me for sentimental reasons.
