    This coming week is lane cleanup.

    Woo hoo!!! My chance to dump all the crap that's accumulated in the basement and on shelves. The only hitch will be my wife. She's a sentimental packrat. I'm the exact opposite. Memories exist in your mind, not an object... Chuck it!!! It's going to be an interesting week.
