Shellness
What are you buying your husband/SO for Christmas?

I guess I'm getting mine a cordless impact gun. 

That man has more tools than Carter has peanuts. Is that how the saying goes, lol? 

He has an impact gun but its not CORDLESS. He has 2 or 3 of every tool. He says if one breaks he has another and that's what keeps a roof over our head, but really, he's addicted to tools :)

    So far, the complete set of Six Feet Under, his favorite show, 3 Carhart work T's, some new thermals, Very Sexy for Men Cologne, by VS...it smells soooooooo good on him, yummie!!!! Ghiradeli dark chocolates, and every year we exchange a stuffed animal, mine is always something Disney, his is either a Dillard's Bear, or a Macy's Bear... Just a tradition we do... I love exchanging gifts with him, he's fun... Last year the girls got him a remote control submarine to play with at the boat dock.. So silly!! This year they're getting him some kind of remote helicopter...such a man, always a child at heart....

     I am getting mine a new snow shovel.  He has a bad back and wants on of those that have the bent handle.  Not sure what else to get the man.  Last year I got him a rolling tool box.  It is still sitting in the garage with  no tools in it.  Not sure if he will use the shovel or not.  I usually do the shoveling and it is only the side walks.   The driveway we get plowed.

    I wonder if those shovels with the bent handles make a difference on the back.

    I got my husband a sawzall last year. I was so excited about it- (as much about the name, sawzall which is cool to say,  as anything.)  He's never had it out of the box.
