It didn't hurt that we have radically different tastes, so when it came time to divvy up the tangibles he took everything he wanted, I took everything I wanted, and we sold the rest. Not one item was on both our lists, but we were prepared with a plan for that eventuality.I'm sure I've mentioned it before, but when my Grandmother died, Mom asked her older brother if he wanted any of Grandma's books (she was a voracious reader). He responded "Yes, all the ones with words on the pages" Grandpa stepped in and pulled out the books he knew Grandma wanted to pass on through Mom and gave the rest to the older brother. But it really left a bad taste in his mouth about it. A year or so later, Grandpa came into possession of two very nice BMW motorcycles. DH was drooling over them. Grandpa ended up giving one of them to DH and the other one to his younger son. When older son questioned the division, Grandpa told him that between the VW Bug that he had given him the year before and the books, he felt like it was an even exchange.There are days that I really, really miss him!LWW
