Getting to the back

We actually got a dumpster for a while to get start getting rid of all the boxes! I have been waiting for this for a while to really break some ground.

This pile of boxes was not as bad as it looks thankfully. Here I am breaking it in.

These awful long metal beams are actually for chair lifts to go up and down stairs.

Two bicycles that have an electric motor. We’ll see how well they work.

I love the ’73 Cadillac!

20150928_130822

 

 

 

 

 

I think this is a ’88 corvette convertible.

20150928_130828

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Also all the bikes!

My grandfather used to pick up these hard balls that fall from the tree. He kept boxes and boxes of them for some reason.

20150928_131924

 

 

 

 

 

He also made these sunglasses with a review mirror for when he went bike riding.

More still to come!

end of the week

This day was a little more slow pace then last time. We didn’t have nearly as much furniture to move. Last wednesday we moved 2 couches, a coffee table with matching side tables, a wooden love seat, and some wicker furniture.

Friday we just moved a writing a desk and two night stands. We actually were able to fill up about four trash cans worth of magazines and newspapers. I’m hoping that next week we will be able to dump a lot of empty boxes. So next week will be super busy!

We found a door that opens to the backyard through the garage. But first we have to throw out all the stuff blocking the way!

The sky was really beautiful that day…

Last time I went to the lake I caught a nice big mouth bass. The lake looks more full then usual so I’m pretty happy about that.

This section is what we are currently tackling. trying to get rid of all this old furniture. Apparently some of it was my great aunt Lola who put big gold wheels on her couches.

Found more of those newspapers and threw them out.

20150923_094316

 

Found some old ads that were in the late 80’s. I found one that was Oct. 21, 1988.

20150923_095014

20150923_095054

 

Filled those trash cans!

The couch I used to sit on with my great grandma again. Then we found a penny farthing style bicycle. Don’t know much about it at the moment.

Getting ready to get rid of most of this furniture. I guess a lot of it came from a company called barker brothers like this dresser…
