I've always called them obstruction wrenches very handy and sometimes the only tool that'll work to adjust a hinge without taking the fender off...I've got a full set in my box but havent used one in years ,they're nice to have when you do need one though

A handy tool that I've used often since I conveniently forgot to return it to him years ago.
That my young man is a starter wrench.

I heard someone say that "Growing old is mandatory but growing up is optional" - - - the best thing about being a kid at heart and acting young is that "it embarrasses the hell outa your kids and grandkids"

LOL, You have no idea...and just when my kids have heard all my old jokes and experianced all the pranks,along comes all the grandkids .....Ahh,fresh meat....
I gotta say though its so great when they get me back ,makes me proud ...like when I fell asleep on the couch and my two girls painted my finger and toe nails...4and 5 yrs old they were...It was a double whammy too because I woke up late for work and didnt have time to get the polish off my feet so I just put my socks and shoes on and went to work but that was a real hot day and after work we all went to the swimming hole for a dip....when I took off my shoes and saw my toenails I was rolling over laughing...Those dam kids....
So I tied up my shirt above my bellybutton and started prancing around like Boy George ,totally embaressing them in front of their friends.....Hey I was in my 20's then...I've grown up a little since...

It's like I tell my kids when they tell me after I have told them some old family story "I know dad you've told us that before". "I am telling you over and over so you remember". Goodness knows that's why I remember the stuff.

The other day at my daughters Volleyball game (the Championship and they won, they went undefeated the entire season!) one of the mothers made pompoms for everyone. I was up in the stands and I did a little cheer and I could read my daughters lips out on the court "Oh my God". LOLOLOL You just can't buy that kinda entertainment.

I'm gonna feel the same when I get overly involved in basketball with my daughter. she already can make baskets on a toy hoop and is only 13 months. she's gonna be an athlete. I can tell.

Practice makes perfect When you can't remember the stories, they'll wish you could tell them just once more ! Oh what I give to be able to sit down and talk to my Dad and ask him those questions that I didn't think were important at the time.

My God, tell me about it. I will call my sister or brother about some info from before I was born and they tell me something that goes against what I remember being the fact so I am left wondering if they are now passing on info that is wrong or am I?

I can't believe how I didn't listen to my dad when he was teaching me how to cook, he was a spectacular cook and always showed me things that look like magic to me now, I was thinking about something "more important".
