I love that.

 

Mom saved her nine pairs of baby booties from each child. One of my sisters is safeguarding them, but eventually, we will all get to keep our own pair.

depends on what they are

seven years would usually work

my father had utility bills from 40 years ago (in order)

it was nuts

is it possible to scan it?

handle it once, scanner to shredder

throw it up into the cloud

forever...

simplify brother

p.s. or you could scan it and toss it into a box and take to a professional shredding outfit

My late brother was POA for my mom after she got dementia, and just before he entered Hospice he passed all the paperwork to my other brother, who was completely overwhelmed and freaking out.

 

I told him to take it home to his dining room, sit tight, and I'd be over with some Kentucky Bourbon Ale and good cheer and help him organize it all one night. I love to organize stuff. He was very grateful. He admonished our elder brother for hanging on to as much old paperwork as he did and promptly made a "burn" pile. I imagine once Mom is gone and there's no need to keep anything, he will make another burn pile.



 
It's really depressing and looks unending.I think I picked a bad time to quit smoking weed.{#Lol}

That's just the paperwork.

I've thrown away ~ $1000 of Ebayable stuff(I checked prices) in the last week just to get rid of it.

http://www.irs.gov/Businesses/Small-Businesses-&-Self-Employed/How-long-should-I-keep-records?

and

http://www.irs.gov/taxtopics/tc305.html

This says small business, but it's the same rules. I like how they specify to keep everything if you've filed a fraudulent report!  

Another thing I've been told by real Lawyers is that you should get rid of things past those retention deadlines. If they are still in your possession they can be subpoenaed as part of a proceeding. If you comply with the retention requirements but destroy other material, they won't be able to force you to submit it. If they have copies they are using against you, you can use discovery to rebuild a defense if necessary.

7 years seems to be the common rule of thumb, probably based on the possibility of an IRS audit.

 
Just put it all in a box and ship it to Kansas. Stop paying the bill after a couple of years, they'll probably let it sit for decades before they decide they need the space.

He did. He was alive when I checked on him this morning, but still not really active. I had to run into work early and haven't had an update from Mrs. Islander yet.  I'm cautiously optimistic, but nature is a bitch.  

I'll update at lunchtime.

Okay, so after a bit of searching (maybe I should have done this first), it looks like he's in a state called torpor. They say it's not uncommon even at feeders, but this is the first time we've seen it in 12+ years.  He's hanging out in the box still, I'm guessing it's warmer in there than hanging upside down on the feeder, so we'll see how he does in the morning.

So we found this little guy in this state:
20150818_202426

I'm guessing he bonked the window and just managed to stick the landing before passing out. We left him like that for a bit hoping he would shake it off - you could see him breathing. As the sun went down and it got cooler I pulled him off and put him in a little box with some tissues to keep him warm.  He moved a bit, but still isn't doing much. I've left him outside next to the bricks where there is some warmth radiating back. 

Not really sure what else we can do for him. I don't really want to bring him inside in case he comes too and takes off. Anyone have ideas? 

And Birdio - tell all his friends we have two feeders up now so they don't need to be all pissy fighty with each other. The running with pointy beaks is going to end with some one loosing an eye, or like Larry here - hanging upside down all googly headed.
