A few years ago I asked for a cordless screwdriver of my own for either Christmas or my birthday. My sweetheart bought one – a man-sized model – and it was mine! Well, not so much! It soon became the handy, convenient tool of choice when he had jobs to do. I used it once or twice and, since it was too big for my hands, I didn’t use it much. Over time it wore out. From use. Not because I used it - because my sweetheart used it. Whenever I had a job that required more than my sweet, little pastel screwdrivers could handle I pined away for a cordless model that would be my very own.
When we began to do a tiny bit of work in my sweet, little vintage trailer my sweetheart showed me how to use his new and improved – and gigantic – cordless drill/screwdriver. It took both hands to use it and I had to hang on for dear life! So it was that just recently – while following my sweetheart through Home Depot – I spied exactly what I knew would work for me! I picked up the display model, held it in my tiny hands and, oh-h-h-h. This was it! Just what I needed. A few slight hints (well, not so slight) to my sweetheart and it was in the basket and soon in the car. Going home with me.
It has a cute, little case to store it in. It should be easy to find when I need it.
It wasn’t long before the battery was on the charger - getting ready to use.My sweetheart also bought me yellow leather work gloves to protect my delicate, little hands!
I’ve used my little tool– and I love it! No one has tried to ‘borrow’ it. I think they all know it’s best they don’t even think of it! Now I have some of the tools I’ll need to restore my dear, little vintage trailer. Oh, wait – there’s more. But I’ll save that for another time!Do you think this is really a ‘find and treasure’? You bet it is! It will be used for many projects – and I can ‘find’ it now! And you can be sure I ‘treasure’ that thought!
