Looks like I'm flush up with work for the winter, and I just got a cash advance
on a job. I'm in the truck and driving to the site, when it hits....burning,
Toolmania! What'll it be? The new Senco battery powered 18 ga nailer????
No more lugging around of the compressor! Or a new jobsite tablesaw, as the
Crapsman has wriggled out of its drywall mudbucket-plastic moorings. While
I'm there, why not pick up a new 6-foot level to replace the one the wind has
blown over half a dozen times, as a stockingstuffer? Better yet...one of those
new self-leveling lasers, only a couple hundred bucks - man, when they first
came out with that, they were 5 Gs! I could carry it in my pocket! Then, as
I'm coming up to a yellow light I hit the brakes, only to hear the grinding and
feel the shaking of the right front wheel bearings. I recall the time the
arm fell off the front axle on my old Chevy van on the expresway at 60 mph
and think, maybe I'll tote that compressor around a while longer...
