My father brought all his remaining tools with him when he moved in with us the last five months of his life. He gave lots away before he left Luverne, and took pride in how he arranged and organized his tools in his new home in North Dakota.
Since his death, we haven’t kept the tool bench as neat as Dad would want it. To be honest, it has been a disgrace for a couple of years, and Husband decided that today was the day to straighten it up. The feature photo is a before picture. Dad didn’t care that he had duplicates of many of his tools, and we just keep them the way he displayed them.
As you can see from the photo, we will never need to purchase a socket set for the rest of our lives.
The coffee containers are full of drill bits, screws, nails, wall anchors, sand paper, garden staples, utility knives, nuts, bolts, washers, holders to use on the peg board, and just about anything anyone could need at a tool bench.
I am glad Husband took the initiative to get this done. I hope we can keep it this way for a while.
It is the weekend. What would your parents want you to accomplish before Monday?
