Around here Friday is clean up day. It's the day we do all the dusting and wash the bathrooms and most other regukar chores around the house. But every Friday I'm reminded of stuff that leaves me wondering why it's kept around. Back in th late '70s my parents had the idea at least one of us four kids should learn to play the organ. In this case an electronic organ. I don't know what they paid for it, but they bought one and paid for lessons for my sister and I. So we went to some lessons and learned how to play a few tunes, but over time we lost interest and eventually the organ stopped working properly. Nonetheless my parents kept this damned thing as a piece of furniture to fill the living room and as a place to set framed photographs. Every so often I ask, "Why are you keeping this thing? It doesn't work and no one is ever going to play it again. It takes up space for nothing and if it was gone you'd have more room to rearrange the furniture or have a place to put a nice little table." And, of course, it seems every house has knick-knacks that mean something to someone, but seem utterly pointless to you (or someone else). Anyone else with useless stuff around the house?
