Many, many years ago my step father gave me his very well built and extremely heavy safe and my hubby was happy to take it off his hands. After my step father passed away we assumed that we would keep this wonderful safe and it has stayed in the garage ever since, where hubby keeps a lot of his important papers and family heirlooms and various other treasures that he wants to keep safe. Last week I got a phone call from my kid brother informing me that our mother has given him permission to come over and pick this particular safe up from our place to bring back to his house to use. I am not happy with this phone call at all. My step father gave it to us, not lent it to us and we have been depending on it and using it for all this time with no thought of ever having to replace it.
I was looking around online trying see what types of safes are out there these days and how much they are running. I was hoping that I could find a good safe the same size with the same inside drawers and compartments. This is the only one that I seem to be able to find and it is almost a thousand dollars, well actually with tax it will certainly run over the one thousand dollar mark. Ouch!!!!
