I had thought I'd run some errands but when it gets to the 2nd half of the month I try to not spend any more money than necessary, so I stay home and avoid temptation!
I did get into some of the papers today. I searched the retention of tax returns and found they should be kept for 7 years. I am playing it safe and keeping 10 years' worth, although I might go back and shred a couple more years. I took a bag of shredded paper out to the recycling bin, along with a whole lot of paper that didn't need shredding.
I have a huge number of 3 ring binders with genealogical info and papers, and I don't know who will ever be interested in it, or even understand it all. I'll leave it intact for someone to take care of after I'm gone
I have several plastic bins with maps for every state and region of the country, and I'm going to toss them all! I might keep the Northern CA map but that's it. I also have a lot of National Forest/Park/BLM/etc maps, which I hope Steve will be interested in. I got the state maps free from AAA, but paid for the National Forest and other federal land maps.
The green St. Pat's milkshakes went over pretty well, so fast that I didn't get a chance to take photos. The corned beef and cabbage was superb, as is everything Donald cooks. Someone made adult shakes containing various liquors but I didn't try them. I drank two bottles of beer in 6 hrs., and even drove home in the dark. There wasn't a whole lot of traffic out, but enough to keep me alert. I wish I had a beer now!
