My husband likes to watch television’s Antiques Road Show
Where regular folks take things from home and off they go
To have the picture from Aunt Nettie appraised and explained
In hopes they will hear of great value gained
You see lunch kits from the 60’s worth one hundred times four
Which makes you think-when I was kid we shoulda bought more
And carted the stuff around from life’s place to place
While bemoaning that the flotsam was taking up space
Until you decide that it’s time to downsize
And you donate them to Goodwill. None too wise!

Graeme’s Star Wars figures would be worth a fortune today but his mom housecleaned.
I understand. When we held a garage sale together way back when someone told me to NOT sell the McDonald’s Hamburglar glasses that they were collector items. I wonder where they are now? Maybe in our basement.
