I bought my wife a palm sander for Mother's Day years ago... (She was going on about wanting to re-finish the oak butcher block kitchen table...)

I'm STILL paying for that one...



P.S. The table came out GREAT!

I actually did give my wife a Kirby vac one year for Christmas.
My hospital bill was over $10,000.

Not surprised. Getting one of those things removed from your rear ain't easy. (I almost said "that it really sucks", but I thought better of it.)

I bought mine a broom and dustpan.
Saved money that way.
Not only does it clean without using electricity ........
She can ride it when the moon is full.

Another time I spent a month in the hospital was when the wife was using a broom.

I said: Why don't you get a two seater next time?"

There was no next time.

My poor hubby got an earful after my dad left… “Don’t you ever ever ever …!”
