Marking time

I have a friend that is quite, shall we say, "House Proud", everytime we talk, she's cleaning this room or that room, or re-decorating some area of the house or something. Then she told me her guilty secret, whenever people come to visit if there's mess, clutter or junk lying around, she quickly scoops it all up into a bag and hides it in a cupboard.

Yesterday, she decided to clean the cupboard out.

Going through each bag was like counting the rings of a tree,"Oh, This was from that visit 3 weeks ago", "That was from a visit by this couple 3 months ago", "Wow 8 euro from 7 months ago"..... "This... last time I saw this was over a year ago when such a person visited".
