You remember my crack about being able to outfit a department store?

Seriously, we're not kidding. Susan gave me the tour last night, and it *takes* a tour: every room in her house is a separate "department". The dining room is full of t-shirts. One bed is covered with jeans. Two rooms have all of their surfaces covered with stacks of sweaters. The downstairs family room is where nightgowns and such live, and the 2-car garage is *completely* full of racks of dresses and suits. Someone made a crack recently about us having a Tardis secretly stuffed into our closets, and as far as I can tell that *must* be true: I haven't the foggiest notion how all of this fit into our house.

Several people have been shy about the idea of taking stuff that others might want, and the reality is that you're not getting the magnitude of this. It took a full 17-foot truck to move all of the clothing to the house. You're doing Susan and me a real favor if you can give some of it a good home, just so there isn't as much to have to wrangle afterwards.

As mentioned before, the giveaway will run tomorrow and Sunday, 10-5 at Susan's. Drop me a line if you need directions, and hope to see you there...
