Basement Notes

1. My dad wrote notes on things in his basement with large block print lettering. For example' "COLD WATER", or "TURN THIS WAY". There are notes everywhere down there, written over the years, on pipes, walls, appliances, etc.
2. Steve visited my mom while in New York and did a chore for her in the basement.
3. I opened my dryer today and was surprised to see Steve's block-lettered handwriting right on the metal inside the door, leaving me instructions.
4. Thanks, Dad.


  1. Your dad sounds like my grandfather. Very careful and organized. He used to underline all the shows he planned to watch that week in the TV Guide. If he had a basement, I could definitely picture everything marked and labeled.
