My mom is cleaning out her basement, and to my knowledge this is the first time she has thrown things away since she moved back to IN in 1986!  Besides going THAT long with out cleaning, her parents died in the past 10 yrs and she has all of their things too!  So I keep getting emails asking me if i want this stuff.  Most of it should just get donated or thrown away.  Seriously, she had my grandmother's pony tail from when my grand-mother was a kid!  Yes, the actual hair!  Ewww.... who keeps that kind of stuff?

Well, she finally emailed me something that I thought was interesting enough to ask for.... my great-grandmother's temperance membership card!  I plan on matting it and framing it and hanging it in our bar!

Think this will cause issues with my great-grandmother's ghost?  Think she will come haunt us?




we are also asking for a couple of my grand-father's school books.

 I think you are safe.. I even have letters dated 1890 and other great stuff and if no angry ghost came to me then I am sure you are safe as well.... I love reading old letters...

I think it's GREAT that your mom at least asks you if you want that stuff. My mom gives or sells it without asking and that can be really hurtful, particularly when I've specifically told her I'd like something someday.

I don't know Jen.... She might haunt your mom once she realizes it could have been framed years ago...

i decided a while back to just accept my moms stuff. then i divert it accordingly. i have found some interesting stuff. and lots of stuff that just gets donated. at least you have something actually valuable.
