We are both sweaty and tired, and also pleased to report that the estate clean-out job we have been working on these last 2 weeks is now complete, coming in on-budget and even a little bit early.

3 American Flags taken to the American Legion for proper handling.
3 computer CPUs taken for hard drive removal and destruction, and the remaining parts of the computers recycled.

We are incredibly thankful that the senior care managers and attorney brought us in to sift through and clean out the house so it can be spiffed up and sold to benefit the estate.
