Carleton, you'd dig my folks' house. Mom was smart enough to pick up all sorts of nifty European antiques when we lived in Belgium in the mid-80's (when the dollar was VERY strong). We've got grandfather clocks (clocks galore, I should say), armoires, a chair or two from the Belgian Royal Palace, a street musician's pump organ... all kinds of stuff. It'll be a nightmare going through all of the estate when the time comes. My brother and I won't want to get rid of anything; too many fond memories.

Nice work, Carleton. It looks much lighter in there than I remember it being before.
