    Stud finders

    Hello everyone! Sorry been extremely busy and have failed to communicate with all of you lately. Saw this while reading the USA Today online and thought to pop in and share it with you.

    As far as stud finders go, I thought it a work of genius.

    I've never had much success with stud finders. Anytime I'm within proximity of one, it just starts beeping and the lights start flashing uncontrollably. I had one that actually caught fire.

    I think the "stud" finder was trying to tell you something, Vaughn!! Don't stand so close to it next time!

    It feels great to sell a pen,
    It feels even greater to give one to a friend!

    That's what happens to me when I get close to a cute young girls in a bikini.
    Anyhow....I have a Crafstman given to me years ago. Works very well. I consider it a household essential.
