Loaded 4 liquor boxes full of vinyl records into my car to take to a record shop for them to look over and make an offer. Have not touched them in over 5 years. Do not even have a record player hooked up anymore. No matter the offer, they are gone.

Homeless shelter may want the good ones.

Oh no, don't get rid of the lions! You're going to miss those.

I have a ton of stuff to take to Plato's Closet resale and if they don't want the stuff, to the Goodwill.

Took some of my excess animal supplies to our small town animal control. Sadly, not a shelter yet. It is just starting out.

We have been gathering old towels, sheets, tee shirts--anything soft and giving it the animal rescue center here. They use these to make soft places for the pets to sleep and probably for rags also.

we found three boxes of 8 tracks, cassettes and cds to go through and discard or sell. I am keeping show tunes and Gershwin.

Cleaning and getting rid of more pet supplies. I had several cats that have been rehomed. I caught their feral mom by trapping the kittens. Got feral mom fixed and released. Fixed the kittens and they went to two other homes.

So I have four litter boxes and other supplies that have to be re-homed also!
