My aunt passed away in August and her DH passed away about two weeks ago... So after all 7 kids and all the grandkids went through the rest of their things, me, and my siblings were able to see what we wanted.... It felt kind of weird going through dead peoples things, but here is what I got:

four bath towels
four wash clothes
two small display cabinets
A ton of salt and pepper shakers (most of which I will give to my siblings)
afgan and matching pillow
quilted pillow
two table cloths
two pillows
suitcase


I may go back and double check here in the next few days to make sure I don't really want anything, I mean they were my aunt and uncle who were more like my grandparents, and I remember a lot of what is in their house. It is so sad that they are gone. But like their daughter said, you can't be mad, sad or jilted on the time they had with their parents-they were 80 and 90 years old when they died.... They had an awesome life.....

Last night I was going to make stuffed baked potatoes with potatoes I just bought last week and they were ROTTEN:furious: so dad just took the 5lb bag back to the store {even though we didn't have the receipt any longer} to show the manager what we bought from them & she was so disgusted by what she saw she gave dad 2 5lb bags of good potatoes:hurray:
