I Spy

As I pulled into the garage the other day, I caught a glimpse of this.

Do you know what it is?

 

No? 

OK, here’s another shot.

Now can you tell?

 

Hmmm…still no luck, eh? 

Well, here’s the whole thing.

 

It’s a saw. 

As in, a sharp, dangerous tool designed to cut through massive things like tree trunks.

Wanna know where my dear husband had it hanging?

 

Who wants to come hang out at my place?  We love to entertain!  We can grill some burgers and swim in the pool.

When you get here, just head out back.  It’s through the death trap white door.

    Ok so where do I even begin with this saw thing? It looks like something the kid from Home Alone would rig up to catch those robbers. Very smart, hubs.

    I just thought of a reason why he would do that. Maybe he wanted to rub it in that he’s such a handy man. I do that with the mop or vacuum sometimes. You know, so my husband KNOWS I’ve been hard at work. :)

    HAHAHAHAHHA! That is typical. My husband leaves his circular saw down in our basement which has a play area and also desks since I homeschool. Anyway, all his junk and tools are in the back of our basement right next to where the kids play. I would love to clean it up, but I have no idea where to put the stuff. So he gets really mad because the kids will wander back there and start playing with these things and I’m freaking out because one of these days, they are going to eat something bad or cut themselves or whatever…and he keeps telling me he’ll clean it over the summer. That was 3 winters ago! By the time he gets around to it, our kids will all be graduated from high school.
