Ok, Don just turned the big six O! Hehe of course we had to do something
that matches *our*
idea of fun.
Love'em or hate'em, most of us guys and gals would love a 200$ gift card for
Lowes. So up that morning he makes me my tea (I so love the man for that
little habit) then I suggest a trip. We been hankering for some toys and
with a light of hopeful little boy in his eyes, he agrees. Hokey as it
sounds, I had them call him to the service desk to gift him his card.
Evil grin! He loved it.
He even spent some of it on me! My woodworking tools were getting haggard
and he got me a new carving curl just right at 1/8th inch. Oh course he
just blushed and said 'umm, I needed one and yours is getting too dull. You
can borrow mine though' (snicker).
What i recall of what we got him for his birthday:
2 pairs heavy leather gloves
1 pair safety glasses (they scratch easy)
2 new hoses
2 cans of nice wood stains
2 cans varnish
1 can acrylic
Sundry oddiments of sandpaper
6 new dremmel attachment tools (small unit, fine work type)
a new mini-drill for small work (think doll house furniture level)
3 new rasps
Some fine wood to make an upper cat run in the 44ft screened porch.
Gonna have some fun playing with his toys!
