    Since he has Racoons and ground hogs, I’m gonna say “ditto”

    I still say you need to get rid of that 70’s era blue carpet.

    Hours? That took about five minutes. I'm literally doing this in-between writing about psychological fragility and the ego. You should look it up...

    I've looked at his photo and I've discussed your statement. If it makes you feel better, you're right, we don't understand you. You're operating on a higher plane than us and we're humbled.

    I worried about that. This shed is going to be tighter than most. It will also have screened ridge vents and floor vent. I also plan to have an open container of moth balls within the shed. This will deter rodents, flying bugs, and snakes.Moth ball fumes are an insecticide that's not good for anything, including people. I will need to replenish them as they dissipate over time. I'm putting a house door on this shed with rubber seals, not a barn door. I have read that if you fill a tight shed with moth balls vapors, creatures will avoid it. This also means that the stored stuff will also smell. I don't think anyone will ever enter this shed once the door is locked.

    It's green. Adjust your monitor. Funny thing is that a lot of people have told me that I should replace that carpet. I don't mind it.

    I was thinking: smart move, put it in a shed so a "providential" fire could take care of the whole thing. I have a garage full of stuff like that. My daughter is going to get to go through it after I am gone.

    Not sure why it bothers you it all. I think you are missing the fact that Dave seems to worship the ground she walks and all of her truly precious items were already moved in. Did you miss that she has 3 pianos? Do you think he is not allowed to have anything sentimental to him? Are you forgetting that this stuff was in her old house that she rarely visited?

    As far as I am concerned, a man that controls the vermin around the house has the right to control the furniture in the house.

    If you can put it where it belongs, I agree!

    It's a decoration that my wife picked out. It has a special meaning to us. You see, my wife came to my rescue 13 years ago when I was undergoing nasty chemotherapy. I was not convinced that I was going to survive. She had a post card that she would show me. The postcard had a photo of an older couple kissing on Point Neff in Paris. She would say, "You will recover and you and I will travel to this bridge and kiss." I did recover and we had that kiss on that bridge. We both fell in love with Paris. We have a little breakfast nook with a small cafe table and chairs, typical of a Paris cafe. We have our own little piece of Paris in our home.

    That you are married and keep saying "my house" is creepier than when you shot a racoon in the face repeatedly and put a dollar bill beside it.

    I would have spent extra money and had a garage built. I never have enough garage space , and when I have an empty stall it gives me a place to buy and store another old car

    It her house, look at that funky blue carpet , big piano in the way, and a shed to store more of her stuff in. He may be supposedly happily married and love his wife but he is WHIPPED, and is doing himself no favors by telling us about it in detail

    I should provide an explanation of why we have three pianos in my house. One of the pianos was mine. It's an old antique upright player piano and I have about 150 rolls for it. It has provided a lot of entertainment and fun of the years. I keep it in the downstairs apartment/recreation room. Over the years my cancer has came out of remission several times and I had to undergo chemotherapy to drive it back into remission. I'm a sick pup during during these periods. I stay in bed for days at a time even eating in bed. My wife takes good loving care of me during these hellish periods of time. I'm overcome with gratitude when I recover and feel normal. The first time I bought her the little black electric piano. The second time I bought her the big full grand piano. She really loves the big white piano. She pays a professional piano instructor to come once per week to give her piano lessons. Her playing has improved a LOT since we got the big piano.

    I'm now on a new experimental oral drug now that does not hurt me or make me sick. I feel good. Hopefully I will never need to undergo traditional intravenous chemotherapy again.

    Thanks for clearing that up. I know that's what was on everyone's mind...
