Cleaning the Augean stables

This weekend around Rancho Lake I'll be cleaning the Augean stables. I need to get all the tax stuff in a row, and I need to get my apartment ready for the house to be listed in a couple of weeks. I am strongly tempted to go on a massive purge of memorabilia and bric-a-brac. Man, that's hard...

I keep telling myself that these days I live mostly in my head. But then I can't bring myself to give away the Chairman Mao lighter that plays the Internationale when you flip it open, or the two-foot travel agency model of an Air Cameroun 747, or the WWI tommy helmet...

Augh.
