Real Estate Agent with Austin Texas Homes










My wife told me that any box I found in the garage that has not been opened for the 3 years we have been here should be thrown away we must not need the contents or we would have opened it by now. Not so fast! I have been missing some things but did not know where to find them. It was my daughter that sent me searching for something she needed that she had not seen since we moved here that led me to the treasure box.

 Ahh yes at last, I have found the treasures I have been missing for 3 long years. Included but not limited to:


-One stone polished mask from Cancun

-A Disney ink pen featuring art work of Jack from Nightmare before Christmas

-A Franklin silver ingot mint set of classic cars

-Various pieces of my Charlie Chaplin Collection.

-An Arabian Knife from of all places,,,Utah

-My autographed picture of Emmit Smith YEA!!!

-Some plastic clowns my dad bought for me years ago

-A porcelain plate (hummable) I can't remember who that belongs too?

-My stamp collection box

Seriously, how did I survive without all that cool stuff. I am indeed richer for having found this box. Now what was it that my daughter was wanting me to look for again? Oh well, maybe tomorrow I will ask her again. I am way too busy trying to find places to put my new found treasures while my wife is still out of town. Ha

Alan, that's great that you found your lost treasures! There are things that have disappeared during our moves that I have never found and can't figure out how they were lost. We unpacked all the boxes, didn't we?....

You better hurry and find a place for them. 

I hate it when my husband comes home with stuff from his mother's home.  We don't need anything else cluttering up our home.

There may well be unopended boxes hiding out. Look carefully.


I know, isn't it great!


Shhh, she might hear you. I am putting them in places she does not look that often.

I am still trying to find some things that we lost in our last move - could you look in that treasure chest again for my things too?

Hi Alan ~ As a packrat I can relate to what fun it is to come upon stuff you've saved and haven't seen in a while - it's like Christmas!

Richard: Could you look it up on ebay for me. I won't sell it but it would be nice to know its GREAT value.

Lisa: Sometimes I wonder if the borrowers are real. If they are I would love to find out where they stash their stuff.

Liz. I feel more like a pirate than a pakrat. But it does feel like Christmas.

Wow!  You get 3 years?  In our house, if you haven't used it in one year, there's a pretty good chance it will get thrown out.

I guess your wife didn't get that box to the Goodwill fast enough. That is why I head straight to the donation box when hubby is out of town. Congrats on finding your stuff.
