I laughed at your last posting. That was what I encountered in my garage!! How do you clean something when you don't know what it is?? My poor demented husband. Bless his sweetness. What a jumble he left behind. Tools that I didn't recognize as tools, a vital part of the lawnmower and our sprinkler system, paperwork that turned out to be unknown money to me, etc.etc. I'm enjoying this blog. But I don't tweet or facebook or whatever so I hope I can reply here.
