Favorite Christmas Present


Recommended Posts

Getting home from Leavenworth WA alive through a snow storm and the mountain pass closing just after we went through, and I mean just after.   On the other side they were already closing it down.   It was a gift to get home in one piece without any car damage or people damage.

Do that and both of us will be in trouble.   We also cannot change ownership of firearms without filling out some form or other.   I expect these will get found unconstitutional soon.

My favorite Christmas present happened some time ago.   I only include Christmas's after I became an adult.   Some years ago, we held Christmas in Leavenworth and my wife sneakily I must say hid her present from me.   If she had asked me I would have said I don't need that junk. 

She got me a DeWalt set of cordless drill, impact, saws all, and jigsaw.   I never wanted cordless, what's the point, I have corded stuff and it works great.   Well, I use that stuff all the time.   I hardly go for my corded stuff anymore.   I can't believe how strong and functional these cordless tools are.   And now they have the same in lawn mowers etc etc.  

At the time it was not my favorite but I have used it more than any other present I've ever gotten.

Ditto. Have become a cordless convert. And when I built a house this year I noticed every contractor had at least some cordless tools.

Drowning in data, but thirsting for knowledge

We built a tiny house in the back.   My son lives there.   Mostly used screws with those cordless drills except for the framing.  I have a pneumatic gun for that.   It was wearing out and didn't put the nails in all the way.   They have cordless nail guns too.   Pretty amazing.

Maybe your wife will get you a wind turbine or solar panel for Christmas this year so you can recharge your cordless devices without needing to use that environmentally damaging hydro power.  😉

Do you have a generator mounted on your bike?  You could mount an electric skillet and coffee pot on the handle bars and have breakfast ready when you get home.
