Another Busy Weekend

Starting Friday at 5:00AM, we got up early for the 3-hour drive. On our final stretch into the Bubble we picked up Mom and Dad’s ashes and got the Death Certificates for Dad, ending up at a 2:00PM appointment with the Bank-People, who were nice. Rather successful job doing a huge amount of cleaning-up, and rather than pay $120 in BayAryan Dump-Fees, we drove home Monday with the truck loaded down with 47 bags of assorted trash and household junk, and paid just $12 local-dump fees. (Updated 12/6) A thick layer of frost on the field this morning, and now more paperwork. I need some large envelopes so a visit to WalMart will be upcoming.

    what a gift your parents gave you in who they were; priceless. beauty in the pain.

    • In fact since Palo Alto eliminated their shoreline dump several years ago, they have decided that now they are a “Zero Waste” city – or something, and everything must be recycled or composted or something. Also the city’s noise ordnance fine for using a gas-powered leaf-blower is $250 to “Jose the Gardener” AND $250 to Joe Homeowner for a $500 total…
