Things found in the bookshelf

Continuing saga of the basement:

 

In preparation for the water-control people to come and jackhammer the shit out of the perimeter of the basement, we have decided to move the built-in bookshelf/storage shelves in the corner.  This might not sound like a big deal, but when pack rat marries pack rat, storage can be a bundle of surprises.

I went through stacks and piles of magazines – mostly Parachutist and Skydiving, with a few other choice tidbits thrown in.  I found my 1994 tax return.  There were some pictures of the cats and of my esteemed spouse from back in the day.

I also discovered a lot of correspondence from old friends, bumper stickers, and my diamond free fall certificate.  Also, there were high school and junior high yearbooks and D&D manuals – Yes, I was a gaming dweeb. 

And that was only in one compartment!  I know there are a ton of treasures awaiting me…  I don't know whether to be excited or scared.

I am prone to speaking before having engaged my brain. This has caused some strife, and much laughter.
