I see your point Don, but it would only be a select few who would appreciate the time, love and effort you put into restoring the Stanley #1.

I like the idea of finding someone you know who WILL appreciate it and leaving your most valuable items to him/her. Hmmmm, maybe we should have a LJ section where we can bequeath items.

Not trying to be flippant, but after spending 5 days in palliative care last year (no other beds available in the hosp) the adage ‘you can’t take it with you’ has taken on a whole new meaning.

Hoping that all of us see enough years to put all our tools to good use, and that we may find someone younger and healthier than us who would be thrilled to get what we leave behind. At the end of the day, I think my husband would just want the garage to himself.

Funny that when we are younger and/or very healthy we don’t think about these things…
