Air tools

My wife has the same problem. A couple of decades ago she bought me an air compressor and for a couple of years she would give me new air tools.
If his current compressor is in good shape, you can always buy him a BIGGER impact wrench, or a NEW sand blasting booth, or my next purchase, a rivet gun and bucking bars.

Although I like the RotoZip idea too. Just don't ask for a 'spiral saw' at HD, the old geezer had no idea what I was talking about.

ya'know Janet... this could get dangerous. Gary could sign up with another login and make his own suggestions...

Janet,

I bought a pneumatic pop rivet gun just to work on the Airstream. Every time I pull the trigger, I smile and think, "Money well spent"...

For the Airstream:

Nesting pots and pans set

New TV and/or DVD player for it

XM radio adapter for it

New converter such as 60A Progressive Dynamics Inteli-Power with Charge Wizard

Generator such as a Honda EU2000

Solar Panel that'll fit your roof space and Controller

Those 1:18 diecast models that you see on Ebay and AirstreamDreams make a nice conversation piece for us old kids.
A new hat might also be appropriate for the occasion.

You're welcome!

Especially one of those LCD Sharp TVs on a swivel mount like Hohne's! Too cool!

That's a great idea ... but ...

At your age Gary ... that's a lot of technology to absorb ... so to help you get through those manuals ... be sure to take some of these ...

For the youngun'. . .

XM radio! We love it for travel--got all the music we like in the deadest reception areas while on the road-and we don't carry along nearly as many CD's as we used to. (Of course, that goes without saying that we are not nearly as techy as all of you that can load thousands of tunes on a credit-card sized whatever! XM has our vote and you can even get a portable unit to haul to the beach or mountain top or whatever off the road place kind of ambiance you seek out. Janet, we think you ought to wrap up XM for Gary's big 5-0!

That comment caught me off guard when I read it seven years ago as in "I hope Gary's still got mobility; it must suck getting old".

My invitation just came in the mail.

Janet: What did you end up getting him for the big 5-0?

just remember - while turning 50 might be bad,

not turning 50 is even worse!



p.s. the same goes for turning 60. happy trails
