Sat: vacuumed and more cleaning/tidying at Dad's house. Rented a U-haul van and took away the spare bed, folding table and chairs. Met Mike, Dorothy, Sam and Mary.

Organized a lot of back history statements and misc docs from the estate. Combed the recycles box one last time for the missing notebook, no luck.
