I can't help it but I'm an "everything in its place" kind of guy. My spouse is the "cleanliness is next to godliness" kind of gal. With these two different priorities there is plenty of room for conflict there but I won't get into that. She is also somewhat of a “pack rat”. I’ll get into that later.
Today I’m sorting and rearranging my two blogs. Why? Put things where they belong and clear out the closet to make room for new posts as it were.
The reshuffling comes about because my first blog (Troutbirder) developed a glitch I couldn't fix. So I started a new one (Troutbirder II) . Then the first one got fixed and I had two blogs. What to do? Troutbirder became the nature blog and Troutbirder II was for book reviews and anything else that wouldn't fit under the nature rubric. For a while though the two overlapped. Now I'm putting a few posts in their proper place. Yes I know this is silly make-work but as I said I CAN'T HELP IT!
With no room to put anything else the pack rat issue is now being resolved. She thinks a garage sale is in order. “Fine”, I said. But I decided to try Craigs list to get rid of my unused junk. So far so good as the following examples demonstrate. A wall safe, an electric trolling motor, a chain saw, a kerosene lamp, a giant Christmas cactus, an old Zeiss camera, etc. Amazing what people will buy….
