"As far as I can think back, my father has always hoarded bottles – here is, for example, ahem, a 'Mouton Rothschild 1945', whatever that's supposed to mean", explains Susanne G., his eldest daughter. "He spent all his money on wine and then simply let it rot away in wooden racks. It was like a compulsion." All attempts at helping Harald D. failed. However, as the 83-years-old cannot look after his home alone anymore, his daughter is taking drastic measures.
|Away with the old swill!|
Meanwhile, Harald D.'s family have already decided on their next "disposal project": the attic. According to Susanne G., thousands of old stamps are stored there, which have long lost validity and should also be removed. "Especially this yellowed blue stamp from Mauretania or so has been a thorn in my side", she said.
