I didn't want to do it, but I was forced to.
I think I've shown recently with the installation of a new handle on the old Gibson ukulele case that I like old instrument cases.
This one, however, is going to get tossed. It's for a tenor banjo and, to be blunt, the lining stinks. It smells like cat urine to be precise.
I tried some orange dog and kitty smell remover, but it did no good. So I am reluctantly getting rid of it.
I also have some filthy old boards and a gallon of used motor oil from changing the oil in my lawnmower over the last few years. So it's off to the dump...or as the Local Gummint calls it, the "Transfer Station."
I'm pretty sure the many people who were working there (on my tax dollars) on Sunday would have prevented me from taking anything away. I think that's why it's called "transfer" - you transfer stuff to them.
There's a big apron you sort of slide/toss your stuff over and then it goes into a big bin.
I pushed the smelly case over the edge.
After about 15 seconds, you realize it smells bad too.
