That would be great if you could find something like that. Most of the junk from my childhood is just worthless.

You have to be careful with what you do with other people stuff.
We had someone 3 months behind in there rent, notice had been given in hand by the sherrif for them to move out and they skipped town.
The only thing they took was some furniture that really belonged to Rent to Own and a lawn mower that belonged to the new people buying the house that they had stored in the shed. There was a plate full of food still sitting on the table, 2, juck cars, the kids clothes and toys had been dumped out and were all over the house, cartains of cig. A jar with change in it, food in the cabinets and still in the ref. It looked like someone just got up and walked out.
I was told to go there and take everything to the dump and keep anything I wanted, just get it cleaned out ASAP so it could be sold.
Two months later the old tenet came back and kicked the door in thinking his stuff was still in there. Someone saw him doing it so we called the police.
When we went to court he won because we were suppost to hold his stuff in storage and post in the local newspaper for 30 days and pay for storage for at least that long.
To me that just makes no since but that's the law. He did not even have to pay for the damage to the door.
If stuffs left behind try and get it in writing it's now yours.

You're lucky he left you with something you can actually sell. One of our tenants left an appliance open and almost burned our entire house. Gah!

Were you asking me? ^_^ They left the fan on and it probably had a shortcircuit, almost burned the house down.

That's terrible, luck you. Honestly, I hardly ever remember to turn my fans off before I leave, I understand how a mistake could be made.

I know, right? Unfortunately, I was at work that time and couldn't help out. But yeah, that kind of mistake can really be easily overlooked.

On a junk removal job/move out we picked up a weight set worth about $600. We told the guy its probably is worth something but he just wanted it gone. We sold it on craigslist and donated the proceeds to our local 4-H group.
