An Unexpected Find

When I built our house over thirty years ago, unknown at the time, there were in it seeds for self-destruction in the bathrooms. For some reason or other, paint never stayed on, neither on walls nor on the ceiling. Even wallpaper failed to behave when put over the bad sheetrock.

After years of repaints and sweeping up fallen paint chips it’s finally time to rip everything out and to start over again. The first step is to empty shelves and cabinets, then to remove them, along with trim, and baseboards. This needs to be done carefully, and each piece needs to be numbered and ID’d, so it can go back where it came from.

Look what turned up on the bottom of shelf number seven.


All these children are now grown and have children of their own.
