20 10 years. Where’d they go? 20 10 years. I don’t know. I sit and wonder sometimes, where they’ve gone…” -Bob Segar
Our divorce proceedings dragged on from 2005-2012. Yup, 2012 was the final signing off on an agreement. Ultimately that agreement says everybody’s happy now walk away…
In all those years you can’t imagine the amount of paper that was accumulated. Stacks upon stacks of files, orders, transcripts…all of it so important and irreplaceable at the time but now? It’s all garbage.
I didn’t want to throw it in the garbage though, for environmental reasons and confidentiality. Paper shredding was out of the question. I would have spent the next 10 years shredding…MWAH! The answer? Have a divorce bonfire!
Before we get it started though, let’s get in the mood with some Trammps, Burn Baby, Burn

b) little to no breeze or wind
c) warm enough to sit out for a few hours
d) clear sky offering a beautiful sunset
Don’t forget your bottle of wine and plastic wine glass.
