Or you can just look at it as an opportunity to buy new tools. And a padlock. Reminds me that I need to invest in Master Locks stocks...



In a while, Chet.

Good news: The guy in the next bed wants to buy my slippers.

I think I have more than tools to worry about LOL. I'm going to have to keep a close eye on my lawn mower, snow blower, food pantry, recliner............. You get the idea.

Reminds me of the true story about 2 Civil War veterans from Texas, by chance they met in a shoe store some years after the war and began a lifelong friendship. They wore the same size shoes and one had had his left foot amputated, the other the right foot. They arranged to meet every year to buy shoes and split them. One's son eventually married the other's daughter.

Damn, hijacked my own thread.

rented a house from my aunt, right next door to Mom and Dad. A good place to drop in for the hot meal, roll of toilet paper, laundrymat, food, tools, cup a coffee in the morning, newspaper, I should have just moved back home. But I needed independence.... oh wow, just noticed, 1000 posts, finally! 5 yrars it took me to get this far.

I found that for christmas presents the tools I was always having to track down got bought for my son so I could find mine. But then I already paid for all his mechanics tools when he was in school.
So some I don't have I now borrow from him. Heh, hee, heh... rubs hands gingerly with and evil grin on his face.

I went through the same thing, the tools he "borrowed" a lot or indefinitely he got for Christmas so I'd have mine when I needed them. Now my new Black & Decker drill bit set is MIA........

Hippie , is it kind of bittersweet , sendin' 'em out into the world ?
I'm just teaching my oldest son to (properly) drive, cuz the big day is coming soon when he'll be driving on his own.
I can hear it now .... " can I borrow the car? " .......

Not at all we're happy for him. Timing could have been better though. I added to the driveway last fall so his younger brother wouldn't have to park across the street and now he moves, go figure. We figure the youngest will be gone the day after graduation in May, he's rarely here as it is. Probably even less now that his truck is running again

I'm lucky there, my kid and fairly new 1st grandkid just live the next street over. That's good cause we still spend lots of time together working on cars and motorcyles.

Really simple, just call him up and tell him that when he brings your wrenches back, your lawn needs mowing. If you put him to work every time he comes to "Borrow" something, they find out that it's cheaper for them to buy a set of wrenches at the store. By the way when they are still living at home and turn 18, say "Happy birthday, first months rent here is free!"
