It used to tick us off as kids when our parents would come through our rooms with a trash bag and indiscriminately toss things that had no value to their eyes but were priceless in ours. As adults, we still receive heartbreaking news that treasured items from our childhood, that we thought were safely stored at our parents’ house, have been donated or sold in a garage sale.

This morning, Tony recounted how his mother had sold his record collection before  moving from California to Louisiana. After a second move from Louisiana to Alaska, he called to inquire after his baseball memorabilia including Pete Rose on a Wheaties box. He was informed that “the rats got into it.”

We chatted about what our moms have tossed and what mom Julie keeps and tosses in her own house.
