I Bought Myself A Laser

I'm Gonna Level Everything In Sight...

Probably the neatest thing about doing construction and/or home renovation has to be getting to buy new tools.

That, and going to Home Depot just to LOOK at new tools and have mental fantasies.

In my ever advancing age, I find a trip to Home Depot to be more exciting than going to a Nudie Bar.

"...whooooo MAN...look at that Makita 12" compound miter saw...WITH the slide feature...hootie hooooooooooooooo....oh BABY...shake that beautiful hardware...Yeahhhhh"

OK, forget that last comment, but while I'm on the subject, what about those Home Depot print ads and flyers delivered to your door in the mail or as inserts in newspapers? (did I say "insert?")

THOSE are much BETTER than the Frederic's of Hooterville Hollywood Catalogues these days. Who needs Viagra or Cialis when you have Home Depot and possibly Ace Hardware, right Guys?

Getting back to my point, Yesterday I got to make a $500 trip to Home Depot to buy a few little things that I needed for my upcoming sawdust making sessions over at my properties in Brunswick.

I use the word "little" in regard to my purchases because no lumber was involved in the experience. In fact, everything fit in one shopping cart when the dust finally settled.

Well, everything, that is, except my new 50' "ultra flexible" garden hose that ended up riding in Pat's cart along with her flowers and flower pots (concessions to the Queen to balm her agony from having waited while my "quick" trip expanded to over an hour of grinning like a mule eating briars.)

You know your shopping expedition is a success when you have to start buying new toolboxes to hold your purchases.

Mine did...

My favorite new acquisition is my Stanley 77-153 CL2 Fatmax Self Leveling Cross Line Laser Level.

I spent a few minutes after I returned home yesterday installing the batteries and setting it up on my camera tripod, and it's still sitting there doing a "laser light show" on my wall as I write this morning.

I'll never hang a crooked picture on the wall ever again.

You'll have to excuse me now, because my first task is to roam around through the Condo realigning the existing wall hangings, then I think that I'll move it outside and straighten up the trees and the cars in the parking lot.

Well, maybe not...
