    "GADGET GIFT SWAP" Check out the GADGETS!!!!!!!!!!

    Alright, thank you for participating. Here is the deal. It would take me forever to get the address and then send it to the correct person. Below is the list. #1 will send to #2, #2 sends to #3, #3 sends to #4 and so on, #19 sends to #1. That should solve that problem. Instead of you contacting your person and asking for their address, you know who is sending to you so just skip a step and go ahead and send your address to them. Let's see if we can get them all in the mail by this coming Friday. Thanks again and look forward to seeing the pictures of "GADGETS GOT"!!!

    Okay folks, here's the deal. I went to my "local" Lowe's (only an hour away) and was meandering through the tool aisles while Lou Ann was on/in an electric cart and at the other end looking at flowers. She doesn't take as long because she knows it is dangerous leaving me alone in the tool aisles with to much time! Anyway, I am a sucker for the "gadgets". The things on the "end caps" (that is store talk for the stuff stuck on the ends of aisles!). Anyway, thinking of FWW and seeing the gadgets, I buy a couple. Here are my thoughts. Let's give everyone a chance to participate so cut off date for being put on the list is July 20th (a month from now).
    Here are the rules.

    1. You must have the gadget in hand/in your home/in your shop/purchased before you notify me and I put your name on the list. (this will insure no last minute regrets/excuses of "I couldn't find anything good")

    2. Let's keep it under $10.00, actually I found many under $5.00 and that is what I paid for mine.

    3. It could be hand made also from your shop, if so, IT MUST BE BUILT BEFORE I PUT YOUR NAME ON THE LIST.

    4. List will be completed July 20th.

    5. Who you mail to will be published by July 25th.

    Well, what do you think?

    Send it to me, if it isn't cooler than mine, I'll send it back to ya!!!!


    Looks like it has stirred some people to action. I just think some of those little gizmos and gadgets are cool. If for no other reason than to know not to buy them! I remember when a student gave me a pencil sharpener for a carpenter's pencil. Still have it, thought it slicker than snot on a doorknob!!
    Okay the rest of you, you only get splinters from riding or sitting on the fence. Bart, will try to insure you don't get another spaghetti sizer!
