You Got Stuff?

“Seems a lot of people are cleaning house since the Covid thing came along.”

“Yup. If you’re going to stay home, you might as well do something you’ve been putting off for years!”

“You ever consider if people in third-world countries would think our junk is a treasure?”

“You ever consider that some of it could be donated, fixed up, and given to our own needy folks?”

“Good point. I’ve got stuff. You got any stuff?”

“Yup.”

The two neighbors spent the rest of their walk making plans.

    1. Thanks, Rochelle. I loved walking down memory lane with the Little Rascals this morning 🙂

      I just posted a question to the help forum. My LIKE button hasn’t worked for a couple of weeks, and my notifications will show up only on my stats page. Hoping to get this resolved.

      1. I did try a couple of other browsers, but not Safari. Thanks–I’ll give it a try.

        Tried Safari. No luck.

        I’ve had several suggestions from WP, but none of them have worked. They seem to be approaching it from the viewpoint that it’s something I’m doing or not doing. I’ve cooperated with every suggestion, with no improvement. Frustrating.

      2. Awwww … I’ve been there. It can be frustrating. My biggest gripe lately is the new posting format. No matter what I learn I always take almost to hours to post soemthing simple. Grrr … I’m not techy but I can follow instrucitons but their instrutions aren’t clear. Ironically, when my membership was up I was going to try another blog place but I didn’t want to go through the learning process again. I’m much too old for that. It’s supposed to be fun. Good Luck … sorry Safari didn’t work. If you do solve the isseue, you may want to post about the process. Thanks for trying my suggestion. Have a great day … Be Safe

  1. I agree with the idea of helping the local poor. Don’t let those third world characters fool you. Nigeria’s a perfect example. The obscenely large majority are dirt poor but a small percentage have countless billions. It’s their responsibility to help their own poor. The smart move would be to convince them, instead of always others, to help.

  2. Great story I can definitely relate to with the stuff and the decluttering. I’ve been steadily putting stuff out to the road (a bit at a time) with free sign on it. The stuff nobody took has been put in the trunk and taken to the local charity shop.

    In my village we have turned an old phone booth into a donation box. Any items left can be taken for free. I turned a worn out shopping trolley into a sack barrow. Ps My WordPress like button is also non functioning

    1. I think the advent of TV, and then fast forward to the tech age, has done a lot to ruin neighborliness. We tend to just hole up with our screens and have “relationships” with our remote controls rather than with real people. Being quarantined really has had an effect on how much we interact with people in our neighborhood, for sure.

    1. That’s what I’m hearing. Covid seems to control even our charitable giving. I guess we’ll have to do it via garage sales, or just hang on to our stuff until the quarantines are lifted.

  4. It’s such a cleansing feeling to sort through unneeded items
    to give to charity. I sort through my older towels and give them to dog/cat shelters.
    They appreciate it so much. Even animals have needs.
    A productive conversation between two neighbors. Nicely written, Linda.
    Have a great day … Be Safe

      1. I used to make rags out of them too. Then, when I aodpted my two fur-children I saw a sign asking for donations of blankets, towels, food and litter. It breaks my heart to see these pets sad and waiting for a forever home. It’s my way of giving them some comfort. I’m pleased you liked my suggestion. Have a great weekend … Be Safe
