I Got Tools

Page 1 of 2  
It's tommorow here now, so my birthday is over now. It's official, on the 16th I officially became well on my way to middle-age. I am now 67. Damn, feel like I should be in my 20s. And my joints tell me that's a flat out lie..
The dau-in-law baked me a German chocolate cake. The older son gave me a big C-clamp. When I got home, the younger son went to his Jeep and fetched me a brand new Kobalt tape measure, apparently their top-of-the-line model. Very slick. They actually remembered, actually got me presents, actually got me presents I can actually use, and actually like. I got tools. Life is basically good.

For a while there I thought we'd lose you. Should've known a Marine is hard to kill. Maybe breathin' oil, gas and carving chips played a role. Congrats - on making it this far, and having "kids" who know what gifts you can actually use. I think Galootness kicks in at 70 so start making plans.

Congratulations on making it this far. I never though I would, but I'm still here too, and still able to make lots of sawdust. Life is good after 65, except for those nagging joint pains.

I was issued my first set in about 1975-76. They haven't improved any.

I've got a stash in the shop that'll last a fair while.
Just think back when you were in your 20s, and all those women in their 40s wer really old. Well now the women in their 40s think you're way too old for them. LMAO Viagra - invented by old women, so old men will have sex with them.

and I don't feel a day over 67. Another 20 years to geezerdom. I remember when one of my kids got me a gift certificate for OSH. I appreciate the thought and when I finally found an OSH (not too far from her house) and went there, I couldn't find anything that I could actually use that I didn't already have. So I bought a rather nice Estwing framing hammer with a milled head. Pretty. I don't do much carpenterin' any more, but when the occasion arises, I'll be ready.
Now I'm wondering if this was a setup to get me to drop by her house. Grandkids can be fun. :-)

A warm birthday thought. This means the ex is now 51. And that's bound to piss her off. LMAO

happy b-day! Well, as the pup of this group, I can only hope to be as up-beat as you guys when I get to be in my late 60's. Right now, having that chunk of bugscreen holding my bowels in place is interfering with jumping for JT's joy. Happy Burfday, JT!

No, not really. Actually we're all planning a convention, and keeping you around to buy the first round. Then, because most of us are so old, we're not able to handle more booze, and will have to leave the bar and take a nap. LMAO

3D thang, I thought I'd give you a hand with designing your boat. I will give you the plans when you are ready to start building it. It has everything you need on board.
