I was very confused.

Then I opened the basement door and the small piles were there. On the ledge..on the stairs..on the water heater...ect...

That's when I realized he must have shipped his furniture to storage and the place was staged.
On the water heater?!?
Danger!

(Maybe, you're easily confused?!?)

Sounds something like my computer desk. A #46 hand plane with all the cutters, draw knife, drill bits, glass drill bit, compass, small screw driver, meat thermometer, Swiss Army knife, magnetic tip tape measure, don't have a clue what kind but I wish I did, it is by far one of the best I have had. The rest just usual stuff like a can of Raid, fly swatter and stuff.

Our kitchen is off limits for tools and things, the shop is an all out mess right now, you can't even see my shave horse. It takes about 10 minutes to mess the shop up where it is almost comfortable. Ahh such is life in the fast lane.

My Swiss Army knife is in my bedroom. (My utility-knife is in my
back pockit!)
Magnetic tape measure? - mine's "Husky" -
(Someone stole my "Malco")
"Fast lane"?!?
I thought with your protracted age - you'd be driving a golf-cart!
How old are you now? -
Old as the hills?

(Hope you got your X-mas shopping done!)

In the golf world that would be the only thing I could drive.

I am older than the hills, at least that is what my help use to tell me.

That's what I've heard - on the "grapevine"!
(Ever meet any interesting dinosaurs, sabre-toothed tigers, mastadons?) He,he,he!
By the way, someone named - I can't remember (starts with a "J")
says a nice Minx coat with matching slippers would be a perfect X-mas present, this year!

Nothing but a "thing" ole' man!
Ole' man could be used for me, too!

If that is what she wants, I will buy her a mink but she is going to have to take it's coat off. Old? Well, I do remember when the May Bud landed here.

Maw just read this and said she wasn't the mink kind, she is more the possum kind, ya know what I mean? LOL

You guys are funny.

I hate to say this, but you're not alone in creating and leaving clutter (did I say "clutter"?), I mean 'tools' laying around. I started painting some walls and bought the trim boards needed to replace the base mouldings on the main floor.... last JANUARY.

Since I can't leave paint and tools sitting out in the living room or kitchen (kids would get into them) I set everything in my scrapbooking room, on the floor and two tables. Of course, it was just temporary - if your definition of temporary is 10 months. hehehee I still don't have the trim installed, but I couldn't stand looking at that stuff anymore.

So last Sunday I took most of it back downstairs where it belongs. Except for the chop saw, which is still on my scrapbooking table because there's nowhere for it downstairs. Can you cut photo's, paper and stickers with a chop saw?

Christmas shopping rossi? Hmm. I bought a big fat roll of Christmas paper yesterday at Costco. Does that count?

"gma2rjc" -
Yeah, I think that qualifies!

"Typical" -
Had a friend - he rode "Bikes" (Harleys) -
According to mutual friends; he was a very good Bike, mechanic -
he worked on them "on the side".
His "real job" was a Bricklayer - he was good at that!

He had been talking about tearing his Bike apart and having some
"Machine Shop" work done.
It was Winter and I stopped at his house.
Walk into the Living Room and there his Bike is completely, taken
apart! (Including the motor!)
Excellent!

How did his wive put up with this?
Large living room -
She had her own "Harley"! -
She understood!
Also, no kids!
(Right Barb!?!)

"Typical"!

Right. But if motorcycle parts all over the living room
made him happy, wouldn't he have been super happy
if they'd had kids picking up the parts and scattering
them all over the house? No?

If them kids got time to pick up cycle parts and throw them around the house.
They got time enough to take out the garbage -
Pick up after themselves -
Do the dishes -
Stay out of trouble -
Mind your "P's" and "Q's" -
Plow the "Back Forty" -
Slop the pigs -
Milk the cows -
Wash the windows and the toilets -
Fix the roof leaks -

Stay away from the cycle parts! - You urchins!
"Typical"!

Piles of tools. Then I have a shop full of tools, a 1 ton truck full and my work van full. And every time I need something I have to go buy one because I know I already own three but can not find any of them.
