    Default My wife got me a leaf blower for fathers Day

    She's out front cleaning the yard with it right now. That's the way I planned it when I asked for it.

    I love it when a plan comes together. :D
    My equipment sig felt inadequate and deleted itself.

    Didja open it up and shout "Man! This thing really blows!"

    I got a vacuum cleaner fora housewarming gift when I first got my apartment. I opened up the wrapping and said "Wow! This gift sucks!" Only my father in-law got it.

    I got one too!!

    Black & Decker rechargable.

    Easy to use and quick...I don't get as much exercise though as the broom.

    My neighbors probably hate me though - noisey and I blow my crap in their yard! :p

    Got a Husqvarna riding lawnmower. Actually got it 3 weeks ago specifically as a father's day present. Then the family got me a barbecue apron on Sunday. Already have a back mounted Craftsman leaf blower.

    Oh, you hate your job? Why didn't you say so? There's a support
    group for that. It's called EVERYBODY, and they meet at the bar.
