throwing things away

I'm just down from upstairs where I'd taken a box of papers. The papers were recovered from my mother's house. Turns out it's mostly Oz club stuff. 15 year old order forms, the Trading Post (a newsletter that allowed you to list what Oz books you wanted to buy/sell/trade), clippings of Oz ephemera, including political cartoons. Political cartoonists seem to resort to the easily recognized Wizard of Oz characters with frequency. I tossed the clippings, the Trading Posts, kept the yearly newsletters and club secretary Fred Meyer's Christmas cards.

I always have piles and boxes of papers. Thus there will always be sorting projects waiting.
