Living With The MIL Chronicles 5 - What Is It?

My first wife wanted to toss it the day we moved in to the MIL's house but was soundly rebuffed.

So it's still sitting up there in the middle of the attic, taking up space but looking real cool.

Note the gerry-rigging (jerry-?) was done with other jurassic items fit for *disposal*!

Can any of y'all decipher this contraption's purpose?

Any bids?

It's a frame to one of those portable closet thingy's. missing is the cover with the zipper.

btw ...your recent MIL posts are beginning to look a lot like your previous landlord posts when they started to take a turn for the worse!

Although, my MIL posts are 98% muted.

I'm literally choking on all the material I can't use!

No doubt she could also write a SIL blog...

If I owned (mortgaged) a house instead of renting/squatting...

Then I'd have to get involved in local politics on account of the property taxes, etc.

There'd be a mountain of confrontational blog material in that scenario too, of course.

Looks like MIL needs some insulation in her roof!

But that's near impossible until a fraction of the junk is disposed of.

It's a beautiful and very spacious house with a whole lot of its attributes *buried*.

That line:

"Do you own possessions, or do they own you?"

...really does apply here.

The dumpster is coming in March!
