Re: Help me love this!
LOL, mattresses in barns, we have it here too. I don't get it either. There is the most random stuff in there!
I don't think its just that FIL won't throw stuff away, I honestly think he doesn't know how. The only thing he knows how to do is gather scrap metal or to throw things on a bon fire or in a burn barrel. Burning stuff is new to me too. A few weeks ago DH helped him clear out some stuff and they had old carpet and pad and an old mattress and a broken couch all burning on top of brush and yard trimmings. I shudder to think of the VOC's being released! The kids came in and wanted marshmallows for the fire! Excuse me, no. I made them stay inside. DH said that is what he grew up with as "yard work". Crazy!
