Cleaning out

This trip is primarily about helping a friend with her daughter's wedding.
There has been a good amount of down time.
so the focus has been to help my mom clean out.
My parents moved over 10 years ago
to this wonderful, accessable house.
That makes my task much easier.
Yesterday was the master dresser.

They moved in at the time of panty hose
and the drawers were full of them.
After a long discussion about the value and restriction of panty hose
all 40 pairs went into a bag for someone who is working for a living.
We decided that neither of us would EVER put on another pair.
Out they went.

Women have so many things that "kept them in place".
Panty hose, girdles, high heels,
even our underclothing was about restriction.
Cleaning out is important for people who are retired.
It gives the opportunity to see the world less restricted.

Off to St Vincent with seven bags of stuff
and a lot more breathing room for life!

YAY! You go, Nettie! Thanks!

No pantyhose here for years and years... gross!

Surprised that the elastic is still good - or was it? ;)

Love you - c
