This is what you get when you rush off responses while heading out the
door to work. And, ended up late anyway, by a half hour.
It sure seemed like forever.
I arrive at the front door of his house to see a stack of maybe 7 CBM
boxes. I thought "this will be easy, I'll be on the road in a half
hour." He welcomed me inside, and then showed me the computer room.
Hmmm, two systems. Still not bad. I'll be able to leave in a hour, 2 tops.
Then, we ventured to the basement. Everytime I'd turn around around
he'd uncover more CBM stuff. And more, and more. It was like a
archeological dig. Stuff was buried under newer projects (painting and
woodworking). THe aforementioned 3B2 was only spotted as we moved a
bunch of wood away from a wall. At the end, I found copies of CBM mags
interspersed between phone bills and tax assessments.
I cmae home and told my wife I had found a bigger packrat than I. We
agreed that it's not how much stuff you collect, it's how organized you are.
