Adventures in decluttering
Who knew that if you leave the headphones from a Sony Walkman in a drawer for 15 years or more, the foam over the earpieces turns into sticky black goo? Well, it does, as I discovered this morning while decluttering a drawer that my husband has been dumping papers in for many years. I had to use the Sticky Stuff remover to get rid of it.

However, on the upside, I discovered a new cheque book for our joint account (not that I use cheques much these days) and a nice little case containing a ballpoint pen and a small fountain pen. These are now mine! :)

Well...I believe I had a similar experience with a pair of headphones.

A FoUNTAIN pen. I always liked them best.

Awesome! When my partner (I should say, my fiancé) visited his parents last week, he found his Cub Scouts wallet, which he last used when he was 16 or so... and it had $80 in it!
