    Actually, I’m dying of Cancer (Multiple Myeloma) and am selling-off the Books and Movies I thought I’d spend my “Retirement” Reading/Watching. I find it rather comforting to know that someone else will be enjoying them since I can’t. I remember how jazzed I was to “FIND” each one (2nd Hand Book Shops were my main “vice”) and just hope that their new owners derive an equal pleasure from them.

    I’m sorry you won’t be able to read and watch your book and movie collection without a miracle healing, and I hope you get it. I will say a special prayer for you. God bless.

    Why sell them off now while you can still enjoy them? They will be sold later. My mother didn’t have much time herself. After surviving the hardest means of killing cancer she found her liver riddled with it and died within only a few weeks. It was sad and trying. I’m sure it is for you.

    If it gives you satisfaction to sell them now I think it is a wonderful, generous thing.

    It’s a rather “sizeable” collection Books in the Thousands, both Fiction and Non-Fiction, along with several Hundred Movies. I am “Saving out” special friends to enjoy during the 2-3 years the Doctors give me, but there’s NO possible way I’ll be able to do all that I had planned on. Since there are/and will continue to be Medical bills (Deductibles/Co-Pays/etc.) I might as well sell them now.

    I’m not “Raging at the Cruel World” everyone dies of something, sooner or later. And this way I’ve got time to prepare and try to leave as little “Mess” behind as I can. Dying turns out to have LOTS of Paperwork associated with it and I’m glad to be able to see to most of it myself rather than leave it to another.

    IF you don’t have one already DO A WILL, and a MEDICAL Declaration of what your do/don’t want to have done. I’m also writing my Obituary and making a recording for my Wake/Funeral/Memorial Service.

    Sadly, due to the Cancer my Organs will be useless for transplant. SOME things you DON’T want to give to someone else!

    When an elderly neighbor moved to a nursing home, his children and their spouses came on July 4 to clean out his house. One son-in-law was dispatched door to door to tell all of us that if we wanted any of it, we could just take it; the rest would go to his church’s rummage sale. We took a bedroom set (mass-produced by hand in the 1920’s per a restorer who tried but gave up on restoring the bed) and gave a donation to the church less than someone had once offered for just the dresser, but as much as we could afford at the time.

    I don’t come to this strip very often but I understand what you’re going through. Both my parents died from cancer and I have a feeling that I might too.
    .
    Just because you cannot donate your organs, it doesn’t mean that your body is useless. I have left my body to a medical school so that the students might have experience of a real corpse instead of a CGI model.
    .
    This may sound rather morbid but my mother died when I was 13 shortly followed by some of her sisters and my father some 7 years ago. I got used to death at an early age and am very philosophical about it.
    .
    May the rest of your life be an education and as enjoyable as possible.

    So sorry to hear of your illness. I am a book and movie lover, as well. I wish someone could find a cure for this horrible disease. That’s very nice of you to share your collection. I will pray for you. Peace be with you.

    Agreed!

    I lost much of my stuff I had accumulated over 30 years back in 2006. In fact I almost died that year. Much of what I have been working on came about since then including my Alternate Alley Oop stories. Every minute is precious. More so when we have even more limited time.
