NATIONAL WORSHIP OF TOOLS DAY – It is NATIONAL OATMEAL NUT WAFFLES DAY as well but I had to skip over that one to go straight to the Worship of Tools celebration. I can explain:
I have nothing against Oatmeal Nut Waffles. I am sure they are lovely and have never hurt anyone. But I am married to a tool-loving guy. He has nearly every tool that has been invented , in duplicate or triplicate.
I have joked many times over the years that I only married him because he owned a complete set of air nailing guns. Of course, that was before the plethora of projects mounted. We have used the framing gun for many house renovations. It makes great ka-chunk! sounds and sure beats hammering nails into two-by-fours.
I was lucky enough to use the roofing nail gun a couple of summers ago … on a very hot second story rooftop. I am not in a hurry to repeat that job but it was satisfying upon completion.
I know that my reasons for marrying him have nothing to do with his tool collection but he does come in handy when anything needs fixing!
Happy March 11th!
