After 30 days, the farm I've lived on (or next to) for 40 years, will pass to another immigrant family. 3 generations lived on this former apple orchard, many pints of blood split, many mouths fed. I've got a 6 month lease ready to go on a rental house, and in those months, I have to find a permanent home... too bad it's during the dead of winter :\
Anyway, I' got 2 12' containers yesterday, and all my worldly possessions will go into them: books (8 milk crates), VHS tapes (more than 8 crates), furniture, tools, fabriaction materials (wood, metal), all the art work I've bought here over the years... in the end, I can't take it with me after I die, but it's nice to have toys and tools and cookery at hand.
Moving is kinda easier when you're young, and your stuff is modern and light, and there's not a lot of it. More milage, more baggage I suppose. The new owner wants to eventually tear these terra cotta and brick structures down, this is one of the 2. There's a few old wooden advertisment signs in the middle, as a cattle/horse barrier. I'll take photos of the inside once it's all cleaned out for the new owners.
November 23rd Sunday morning Update: About this time yesterday, before I woke up that Saturday morning, my brother sold my fathers green toolbox. I specifically asked that it not be sold, but it was, so now I don't have any small or medium wrenches to work with. There was never a complete set of anything in that small box (with stand), but it was our 'go to' box for tools, even after my father passed away. I couldn't lift it, so I left it in an out of the way place, thinking no self respecting Californian would let a random citizen of New Jersey off the street, climb into a darkened, cramped box trailer 2 feet off the ground.
Anyway, I thought I was adult enough to be able to forgive and forget it, but when I woke up this morning, coughing and hacking from the cleaning I did in the kitchen last night.... I woke up very very angry. It's never been more clear to me, that my older brother and sister have no empathy, that when they left New Jersey, they left all senimentality behind. I'm still going to be the 'baby' of the family to them, subject to whatever preconceptions they have about me.
