Those are lovely.

You have some nice tools and you give a gift in return by graciously accepting them. It's satisfying for the giver to see their things being put to use and to see the pleasure of the receiver.

The fact you could set those planes on the couch to photograph them, without starting a war, says volumes about your peaceable kingdom.

Wise words. It took me a long time to figure that out.

I'm always surprised what couples find to fight about. I'm just gonna go ahead and count that blessing.

I'm a big fan of those hybrid planes with the wooden bodies and metal guts. Easy to adjust the depth and the wood just glides over the work surface.

Can't wait to find a job for them.

So the old guy had more guns. The potential Columbine kid, you know the unemployed college graduate who games in the basement while his arthritic mom mows the lawn, across the street asked about getting one. Yeah, no, that won't fly. FiLs blood relatives are afraid of guns so I'm pretty well stocked now. I'm going to find a good home for some of them. I also was given a bunch of fly fishing gear, which is very cool. The clean out has been pretty wild, the man had his passions. Garden scale trains and telescopes will probably land on ebay...

Thank you. If only all retailers would be so conscientious.

It's got me wondering about this whole generation leaving their guns behind...

No, not just more stuff. You don't leave them on the curb for the trashman, you don't shuffle them off to Goodwill, or put them up on ebay in a surprise box.
Somebody has to take the time for some serious thinking about the disposal. It's a conundrum for that person because a gun in the worst shape possible is still worth money.
Probably the lowest $ return is selling to a licensed dealer, and the highest is selling on the street. The Good-Doobie return is reversed.

There aren't that many hunters in the followup generations. So we have a shit-ton of weapons being handed off to folks without any firearms training or any use for them... It gives me pause.

Help your fellow living creatures by taking those guns to the zoo, loading them, and giving them to the monkeys so they don't have to fling shit anymore. How degrading that must be for them.

The monkeys won't learn self-sufficiency if you do it for them.

I am for the arming of zoo monkeys, don't get me wrong, but I think they have to be released onto the public.

If I can't hunt over bait, then neither can the monkeys.

Also, if they take a gun, they have to give up the typewriter. Only one weapon per monkey.
